Expert Jury Selects Winners
The German Developers Award is one of the most important awards for outstanding performances of the development of video games in German-speaking countries. Indie developers ByteRockers’ game VRog is nominated for “Best VR/AR Experience”. The award ceremony takes place on December 7 at the Palladium in Cologne. The winners in the different categories are selected by a top-level expert jury, consisting of journalists and game developers as well as science and communication experts.
Exciting VR Insect Hunt at the Pond
After VRog has already been published successfully for Nintendo Wii U, nature lovers can now start catching flies and other insects in Virtual Reality on the Oculus Rift and Samsung GearVR. The player steps into the role of a hungry frog and jumps from one water lily to another, trying to catch as many juicy insects as possible at his favourite pond. Every action is controlled by the player’s viewing direction. A button stroke is only necessary to start VRog.
Different game modes challenge the player
The player has to prove his fly catching abilities in two different game modes. His goal is to catch as many flies as possible and keep the hungry frog satisfied. During the arcade mode, the player has 90 seconds to snatch the juicy delicacies and beat the highscore. But beware of the huge stork that sets a foot on the virtual stage in the survival mode and gives the frog a rough time. Once the frog has been spotted by the stork, players should flee as quickly as possible. The player can catch as many insects as possible in unwatched seconds, though.
