Embark on a Deadly VR Adventure Through Eye of the Temple for Meta Quest Headsets
Are you ready to step into the shoes of a brave explorer and embark on a perilous journey through a jungle temple, battling ancient creatures and solving riddles along the way? If so, you’re in luck: Eye of the Temple, a location-based VR game, is now available on Meta Quest headsets. In the game, players navigate a dangerous maze of primitive puzzles and deadly traps while searching for valuable rubies hidden in delicate jars throughout the temple.
One of the most unique aspects of Eye of the Temple is its locomotion system, which requires players to physically move throughout their real world environment using their own two feet. The game utilizes clever level design to reposition players in the real world through moving blocks and rolling logs, adding a thrilling sense of danger to the gameplay.
To play Eye of the Temple, you’ll need a fair amount of open space – at least 6.5 feet by 6.5 feet – to move around in. However, it’s recommended that you give yourself a bit more room just to be safe. You can even unlock speedrunning challenges and try to navigate the temple at high speeds.
Eye of the Temple was developed by Rune Skovbo Johansen and published by Salmi Games. According to Johansen, the idea for the game was inspired by the Indiana Jones movies. “In the first six months of development, not much had been established beyond the fact that you were exploring some kind of temple and had a wooden torch in one hand,” he said. “The other controller wasn’t even used for anything. But as various friends were trying out the game, a persistent refrain I kept hearing was that playing it felt like being Indiana Jones. After hearing this enough times, I thought, ‘That’s not a bad experience to evoke – why not lean into it further?’ Without infringing on copyright or IP, of course.”
Eye of the Temple is available now on Quest 2 and Quest Pro headsets for $19.99. For more information, visit eyeofthetemple.com.
