Developer Maze Theory revealed their upcoming Doctor Who-themed VR game, The Edge Of Time, last month at E3. Now they’ve brought us a more in-depth look at the game….specifically, the creatures you’ll be running into while playing it. The embedded video is part one of five…if they don’t auto-play, use the navigation tool to see them all.
The Weeping Angels (video 1) are most suited to a VR game, as their mechanic would be the most terrifying in first-person view. Their appearance as stone statues is only an illusion. They can only move and attack you when your eyes are closed, so…blinking can be a problem. They’re fast!
The Daleks (video 2) are some of the deadliest beings in the universe. Devoted to destruction and protected by an impenetrable robotic shell, you don’t want to come across any. …You’ll be coming across a lot of them.
You’ll even meet some monsters you’ve never heard of before! Hydroks (video 3) are new and invented just for the game. According to Maze Theory “they are vicious amphibians, sometimes used as guards by races like the Stenza and Zygons. They are incredibly eerie, slimy and have a penchant for staring at you! These deadly carnivores have no table manners and possess a real taste for human flesh, with their hunger never being sated.”
Finally, learn how these creatures were made in the four-minute Developer Diary (video 4). Doctor Who: The Edge Of Time will launch on PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Vive Cosmos in September 2019.
