One of the most widely played games on the face of the planet is your only means of survival in RPS Island. Created by ISVR, it took third place in this year’s 3D Jam VR Track for addictive gameplay and solid interaction design. Faced with a never-ending onslaught of enemies on a tropical island, you must defeat them by signalling their weakness. The demo is available free for download on our Developer Gallery.
ISVR is an indie studio based in Beijing, formed last year to focus on VR game development. RPS Island was originally inspired by games between ISVR founder Yi Zhang and his five-year-old daughter. “We have lot of fun with it, so it came into my mind when we decided to join the 3D Jam. We designed lots of details for characters, background story, etc. and we hope players could have a new experience with RPS.”
Yi has worked as a game artist and programmer since 2004, producing PC, web, and mobile games. We asked him about his preferred RPS strategy, and while there is random chance involved, he points out that it’s often possible to outthink human opponents.
