The studio behind Steamhammer VR, Showstorm Ltd, describes it as “a story-driven virtual reality steampunk game”. Graphics are pleasant to watch with a very enjoyable end-of-19th-century atmosphere, into which you can freely wander, while comfortably seated.
Let’s listen to what the developers of the game have to say. When Showstorm released the free locomotion version of Steamhammer they teased players stating “if you played SteamHammerVR before, then you simply have not played it at all”. But they still were in this VR-should-be-played-standing approach, until they tested the 3dRudder and loved so much how great playing seated could feel, they decided to integrate the 3dRudder as a VR motion controller, saying “it really is a fun and different experience playing SteamHammerVR with the 3dRudder even compared to our standard free movement system. We love it!”.
