Description


Discontinue is a unique competitive Virtual Reality (VR) Arcade game. The ultimate disc throwing video game experience. With a retro neon game style also called Synthwave or cyberpunk style. Your goal is to survive in a world of obstacles, where you are welcomed as its champion. As you move through this world, you will encounter all kinds of hexagons, which can be helpful or injurious.
The world consists of more than a thousand levels (a.k.a. parkour's), each generated through a seed which you can share with a friend or a foe to compete for the high score. Adding to the replayability.
Every seed generates a unique parkour by combining various handcrafted phases. These phases are displayed as tunnels or arenas and are seamlessly connected in many different orders and variations. All to create fast action paced gameplay mixed with more relaxed puzzle-like or transitional phases.
Tunnels are all about dodging and speed, whilst in the arenas you focus on standing your ground and defeating all obstacles in your way.
The various phases combined are designed to provide a rich and impactful sci-fi experience full of new VR action.

"A great game, cool throwing mechanics, very appealing art style: Kinda Retro (Tron) looking. There are a few minor things that can be improved but overall solid title. Just don't throw your remotes ;)"
