New Game ‘Boneworks’ To Bring Hyper-Realism To VR Physics
Stress Level Zero has secretly been working on an indie title called ‘Boneworks’. It aims to create a rich, physics-based interactive VR game.
Considering the developer, Stress Level Zero, have released previous titles such as Hover Junkers back in 2016 and following up with Duck Season in 2017, it has much anticipation for Boneworks. The studio will be incorporating what the development team has learned throughout the intervening years, with the aim of delivering a hyper-realistic physics based game as close to real life as possible.
It will feature a full avatar, giving players an added sense of immersion and embodiment by driving everything with physics, from guns to objects to enemies. According to the Steam page quite a lot of work has gone into turning this into more of a game than we originally thought it’d be:
