Description: We are still working on FILE 9 and close to finally launching for PC and also will have Oculus Rift support as well! While the overall of FILE 9 is still being added too with much more content, upgraded art, and UI, we are going to be launching an update in mid 2019 that will have all the current areas that are available now with updates. Included in update, will also be available for PC with full controller support along with support for Oculus Rift as well. We will continue to make our FILE 9 title a full story-based game, adding the additional areas as well as making major updates to the existing areas.
Review: I’m sure that somewhen along the line of development FILE 9 was going to be some grand adventure and one of the biggest VR games of its time. But sadly that never happened and yet, the “big dream” price remained. Let me tell you this. The only way you should be willing to pay £44.99 for this is when you are drunk, a millionaire or possible under threat of life unless you do so. If this was a single quid it might have been worth a look, but for that price, it is little more than a joke.
With a lot of work and tonnes of extra content this game might be worth a look but seeing as it has been long abandoned you really are better off avoiding it. A game with big dreams for sure, but sadly it’s still sleeping and waiting to be woken up. Such a shame really as it looks like it would have been amazing.
