A Virtual Reality Adventure On Skis

Six months after their exclusive Meta Quest release “Rainbow Reactor: Fusion”, Tunermaxx are back with an ambitious VR adventure on Steam Early Access. Players will be immersed in a majestic Alpine landscape, preparing a remote little ski resort for reopening all by themselves.

Features

  • Get away from it all through the power of virtual reality – instead of impersonating a character, you play as yourself, trying to get some distance between you and the energy-sapping pressures of those last two years.

  • The life-like simulation of skiing makes movement through vast landscapes feel natural and real – even in limited VR playspaces.

  • Cross-country skiing as well as descent runs are featured as competitive events with online leaderboards.

  • Communicate with your friendly superior through an innovative communications system.

  • The Early Access version offers the full story of the game with over two hours of recorded narration, 21 ski races and lots of side-tasks to complete.

  • Early adopters will have the chance to shape the final balancing of the game’s main gameplay elements: Adventure, Sports, Job Simulation and Communication With A Virtual Person.

 

About Snow Scout

With all the stress that has been invading our lives recently, Snow Scout offers a chance to virtually get away from it all. Players experience the game’s story as themselves, having decided to volunteer with a non-profit organization, with the task of preparing a remote little ski resort for reopening. They will have to perform tasks based on real ski patrols, like opening and checking slopes, performing snow cover tests to determine avalanche risks and even triggering controlled avalanches, as well as side-tasks like recycling trash and taking pictures or elusive Alpine birds.

About Tunermaxx

The first commercial release from Tunermaxx was the color-matching game Matchic for the Commodore Amiga in 1991.

Today, the company consists of film industry professionals with Hollywood credits under their belt, who see immense potential in Virtual Reality technology. We’re excited to bring our love of storytelling to such an exciting platform of entertainment!

Upon your arrival in a remote Alpine valley, you get to know your everyday tasks. Your friendly handler is watching you from a survey station from high up in the mountains to enable you to fulfill your tasks all by yourself. You answer radio calls, brush up your skiing skills, collect your equipment and then get to work. Snow drifts have to be cleared, ski routes must be opened and tested, avalanches have to be prevented and of course you also have to look out for yourself – Chop some wood to make a nice fire, open a can of stew and finally rest after a long day of new impressions, high up in the mountains.

Game designer Kalle Max Hofmann said: “Virtual reality has an immense potential for a different kind of storytelling which is largely unexplored. The high immersion offers much more emotional involvement, and we wanted Snow Scout to really feel like a time out, like an escape to a majestic mountain world, where your thoughts can run free and help you relax. At the same time, communication with your supervisor plays an important role, and during your one-week stay with the Snow Scouts, you will learn more about her – and maybe even about yourself.”

Still, life in the mountains is not a walk in the park – as beautiful as nature is, it can also be dangerous, so players will have to be mindful and keep their wits about them – as a chance for unexpected events is always at hand.

Snow Scout will release for VR via Steam Early Access, where players get a chance to shape the final form of the game for a period of three months. After the game’s full release, possible ports to Meta Quest 2 as well as PlayStationVR2 will come into focus.

About Rainbow Reactor Fusion

Guided by a disgruntled robot, Dottie, players will arrive at an abandoned factory – the sole export of which is rainbow energy, the cleanest around! (Probably.) In between levels of hands-on colour matching, players will also face the puzzles, mysteries, and dangerous hazards that await them on the factory floor.

Together, with the help of Dottie, players are invited to rebuild this forgotten factory, bring colour back to the world, and uncover the lost fate of its previous owner – so, no pressure, right?

Game designer Kalle Max Hofmann said: “The goal with our first title, Rainbow Reactor, was to make something that was ‘easy to understand but hard to master’, so that even people who try VR – or even just games – for the first time can jump right into it, while offering a sophisticated scoring system to keep it interesting for skilled players.

After that game found its success and a base of dedicated fans, we became passionate about building on their excitement, and Rainbow Reactor Fusion came into existence! We fused the true-and-tested Match-3 gameplay with a captivating action-adventure story that has players fixing up the Rainbow Reactor building and solving the mystery of its downfall on the way.”

Rainbow Reactor Fusion will release for VR via Steam and Oculus Quest.
