Robinson: The Journey is a VR App. It is a game from Cryte and uses CRYENGINE to create a realistic virtual reality experience set on a mysterious planet. Players will assume the role of a young boy who survived a crash, and they will be given freedom to explore the planet and interact with its ecosystem to discover various secrets and interesting sights.

Description

A RICH WORLD Exploring from a first-person perspective, gamers will encounter an array of dinosaurs and creatures that react to their presence within the ecosystem of Tyson III. An emphasis on interaction with their surroundings encourages players to examine each area of the game in detail – creating a dense atmosphere and adding to the sense that Tyson III is a goldmine of undiscovered secrets. The game places narrative at the center, with an engaging storyline unfolding as players explore.

AN EXPLORER’S PARADISE There’s something to discover around every corner. Wander off the beaten path to collect achievements, find rare items, and interact with the environment. With free movement, you can go wherever you want, choose how to progress, revisit places, and make the most of a non-linear story. There are no cutscenes in Robinson: The Journey, with every aspect of the story unfolding from the player’s perspective to retain a deep sense of immersion.

A BEAUTIFUL JOURNEY Robinson: The Journey features a vibrant game world designed to make players feel truly present in unfamiliar territory, all powered by CRYENGINE to deliver stunning graphics, realistic sound, intense immersion, and a sense of scale that push the boundaries of VR gameplay.

GRAPHIC FIDELITY AND VR Because VR is still an emerging medium, VR development has brought with it a new set of creative and technical challenges. Robinson: The Journey has been created from the ground up to offer an immersive VR experience. Using the power of CRYENGINE, our team added new features and optimized pre-existing tools to meet those challenges and make Robinson one of the most stunning experiences currently available in VR.

Features

History

Announced at E3 2015, there is still only a very little information available about the game. We know that it is going to be set on a mysterious planet and that the gameplay is going to focus on the exploration through the eyes of a young boy. [1]

The game demonstrates Sony’s commitment to making virtual reality a staple of their console platform. Their executives are betting on the success of VR and want to be there when it happens. [2]

Crytek has demonstrated a couple of VR demos at various industry events over the past year. These demos, namely Dinosaur Island 1 and 2, gave a peek at what we could expect from Robinson: The Journey.

The first demo placed players in a more static role as a giant dinosaur stared them down at close quarters. The second demo featured greater interactivity as users scaled a cliff and took in their expansive surroundings. Many players claimed that these demos were the most immersive and realistic VR experience ever. Everything about the environment looked believable, with an unprecedented level of visual fidelity.
