Description: The Wake is a groundbreaking Virtual Reality game coming soon to the HTC Vive. Engage in hand-to-hand melee combat in a room-scale survival game, unlike anything you have seen or felt. Follow characters through a narrative that will play out in real-time, with professional motion-captured actors and actresses interacting with the player between escalating waves of mutating zombies. To survive, you must use every resource at your disposal, from bare fists to an array of bats, axes, bladed weapons, explosives, guns, and even a 2-handed chainsaw.

Review: The Wake was going to be a big zombie wave shooter and to be honest it looks pretty good! But work has since stopped on this and while you can still download the demo the full game is not going to be happening any-time soon. There is a real hunger for this type of game in VR, but fae too many people have seen this genre used to death and back. Could ‘The Wake’ have been one of the good ones? I think so, but I guess we will never know now unless someone decides to pick it up where other people have left it.
