Become an invincible gladiator with the 3dRudder

Let's state it plainly, Gorn is a no-brainer: you are a gladiator who must kill other gladiators. Simple as that. But the game does not need a complex scenario to be fun and addictive. If you need high adrenalin level, this game is made for you. As a game originally designed to be played at room-scale, your enthusiasm might though cost you quite a bunch in furniture expense, as most players in the Steam forum state it! But that’s without the 3dRudder.

With the 3dRudder, you will not only avoid domestic accidents, but also get even more immersed into the game. Charging enemies, using momentum to kill them, and sneaking behind them to cut them apart will be of no consequences, as you play seated with as much freedom of movement as you can dream of.

Without the 3dRudder

Gorn is an unbelievably ferocious VR gladiator game made by Free Lives. As a Gorn soldier, you'll be delighted to strike rough blows, in a cartoon-like way, and become a super gladiator in virtual reality. You can brutally strike down your opponents with a wide variety of weapons such as maces, huge warhammers, bows and nunchucks.

Most of the players who tried out the game will state that it is worth the money, except maybe for the -not virtual- table they smashed while playing or the hand controllers that got themselves smashed on the table!

With the 3dRudder

With the 3dRudder, you play seated and control your every move in the game with easy, effortless movements of your feet on the 3dRudder. Your hands are totally freed and you can unleash your blows. Most of the players who believe playing seated is an immersion killer should just try it out: once you've experienced the great freedom of movement the 3dRudder provides, you'll never want to use your hands for anything else than striking!

The 3dRudder turns fighting into a delightful game. As you get used to your newly acquired agility, dodging blows and smashing heads become a child's play. No more fear, you are the invincible gladiator!
