    Scorched Battalion

    Hi all,

    As some of you know, I've been having some neck problems over the past 2+ years which have made it difficult to use a computer for any substantial length of time. Last month things began to improve after some changes in physiotherapy etc., and I recklessly entered this Game Jam, expecting to most likely need to drop out part-way.

    Things went unusually well, though. My neck actually continued to improve as the contest progressed and, together with my two brothers, I was able to complete something more ambitious than I'd initially thought possible. My neck even stood up to some 20 hour days towards the end of the contest, when 20 minutes had previously been problematic. I'm pretty happy about that.



    Scorched Battalion is a virtual-reality artillery game with a twist. If you happen to have an Oculus Rift or Samsung Gear VR headset, you can try it yourself using one of the links on this page. A video is also available, here. Community voting is currently open, so don't forget to vote for your favourite entry if appropriate . The voting link is on the right -- if it asks you developer questions, you can scroll to the bottom and click "I'm a voter" to skip them.



    A news post with new Sven Co-op 5.0 information is coming very, very shortly, so be sure to check back soon. Best wishes to all of you, and to the team, who have been putting a huge amount of effort into getting 5.0 released!

    Didnt know you had neck problems but I am glad, things are getting better. That game looks really cool. Sadly I dont have a VR-device but I am sure to get one, once they hit market.

    +1 for VR in SC

    Scorched Battalion was just selected as a finalist, by the way, which means it'll be played by a panel of unusually impressive judges including John Carmack. It was also featured here.
