Description: The Existence Abstract is a VR shooter with rogue-like elements built from the ground up for the HTC VIVE. Jump straight into the Abstract and begin your journey, but be wary as permadeath is ever-present in each playthrough. Playthroughs are short, but different every run giving a new experience each time. Follow your intuition to navigate through a grid-like maze. Use your skill to dodge traps and enemies. Let luck guide you through the items you find. Show fierce determination in the face of the bo̴̱̟̓ͥs̹̺͘s̭͛es you will face. Do what you can to get through the labyrinth that is the 61 62 73 74 72 61 63 74.
Review: The Existence Abstract is a small mix of game genres in what seems to be randomly generated levels which do at least mean you might never play the same level twice, but I have to say, they kind of all looked the same due to the lack of scenery and other things. But that is this games biggest issue. Everything about it is as basic as they come. Yes, I know this is an indie game, but that doesn’t mean it has to be this basic. It certainly isn’t worth £2.79 and I probably one of those games you get as a filler in a bundle of other cheap ones. This wasn’t for me, but an interesting mix of things nevertheless.
