Synth Riders & OhShape Release Collaborative Map and Community Contest for Oculus Quest
If you like a healthy dose of energetic gaming then Oculus Quest can easily fulfil those requirements. Today, two of the headset’s rhythm-action titles Synth Riders and OhShape have joined forces to bring players together for a community competition, using a brand new map which is available on both.
Head to the Oculus Store and you’ll find Synth Riders and OhShape are currently bundled together in a Duo Pack, with a little discount to tempt players. To mark the event, developers Kludge Interactive and Odders Lab have jointly released a free song called Delight by Jamie Berry.
The track was hand-mapped and choreographed for both videogames by each team to showcase how each one can offer a different experience. Additionally, they’ve launched a “Collab Delight” contest where players can either pair up or compete on their own for the best high scores in the new song. Prizes for the winners include Amazon Gift Cards so if you’re interested then signup here. The contest runs until Tuesday 30th June 2020 6pm PST, the winners will be revealed during a special co-developer stream on 1st July, 2020
“We think this collaboration is the beginning of a great way to explore synergies between our games and our communities, and it’s been great to tag-team it with our friends at OhShape. We are always looking to push the boundaries of the VR rhythm genre and are proud to be the first to bring a collaborative approach to our updates,” said Arturo Perez, CEO at Synth Riders in a statement.
Synth Riders‘ gameplay can easily be compared to dancing where you have to hit targets and dodge walls all in time to an array of music styles. It features a solo mode as well as a competitive multiplayer. OhShape, on the other hand, was inspired by the Japanese TV show “Hole in the Wall”, where you have to match shapes with your body to pass through blocks and punch walls.
The Synth Riders and OhShape Duo Pack for Oculus Quest is available now for $27.99 USD, providing a 30% discount. For the latest updates to either videogame and current Oculus Quest offers, keep reading VRFocus.
