The Mortuary Assistant is an indie game developed by DarkStone Digital and published by Dread XP. This indie game is making a buzz in the horror game genre. With a plot that is simple yet effective and graphics that are dark enough to capture your guts, The Mortuary Assistant is a gem on its own. As the game says, you are left alone with the dead. Your main job is to embalm the corpses, banish the demons and save your soul. As of now, the game is available on Steam for PC players. However, players are asking if there is a VR mode release for the game. In this article, we will discuss whether there’s a The Mortuary Assistant VR Mode release date and if yes, then when is it coming out.
The Mortuary Assistant VR Mode Release Date
The Mortuary Assistant is set on the lands of the River Fields Mortuary. In the game, you have just completed your degree in mortuary sciences. You are taking an apprenticeship at the River Fields Mortuary. Your main job is to know the embalming process so that you can properly handle and care for the deceased. However, one late night you start to sense something shady. This is when the fun begins. The plot of the game is pretty basic but it goes well with the style it is trying to accomplish. However, plots like this demand an immersive experience. What can be the best way to get this experience other than making a VR version of it?
As interesting as it may sound, as of now, there is no official confirmation on the release of the VR version of the game. The primary reason behind this is the complexities behind the Virtual Reality side of the game. Although it may sound pretty easy to just copy and paste the graphics of the original game to the VR version, it is not. To make a VR version of any game, you need a lot of technical mastery in both fields. Since The Mortuary Assistant is an indie game, the developer will need a lot of time and resources to make a VR version of the game.
Also, to rebuild the game, many aspects will have to change and mold. A separate project will be the demand for a VR version and the developer has stated the same. This can take a lot of time and workforce. Also, the developer might wait a little longer as the PC version just got its release on August 2022. Therefore, if the PC version manages to retain the hype and popularity, we might see DarkStone Digital starting the project. But as of now, there is no release date for the VR Mode for The Mortuary Assistant.
However, we should not lose hope. Until then, you can enjoy the game exclusively on PC. The game is available on Steam and has full-controller support. Also, do not forget to visit Androidgram to get the latest updates on games and tech.
