Description

Hell Eluja is an asymmetrical game where the first player, called Hero, plays inside VR and the second player, called Dungeon Master, plays on a tablet or a smartphone. The Hero is trapped in a dark dungeon and must find 4 hidden keys (randomly generated). He is left at himself and must run away from monsters. The Dungeon Master takes the role of the mastermind. He can see the dungeon from above and has the ability to summon the monsters. With them, the Dungeon Master must find and catch the Dungeon Crawler before he gets 4 keys.

History

During the Global Game Jam 2016, they created a VR game: a monochromatic graphical adventure, called Hell Eluja. During that time, the team also studied the technology (VR) and experimented several ways to interract with it. One project was an asymmetrical game with a jail guard and a prisoner. Seeing the potential of the mechanic, the team decided to merge both projects. With Hell Eluja, we want to make VR social.
