In Crowe: The Drowned Academy, you'll become a young villager named, coincidentally, Crowe. You'll be interacting with NPCs, solving puzzles and fighting aliens in a quest to uncover the secrets of an ancient temple that could help unravel your true past and that of your society. All in high-end VR.
The game will feature a richly beautiful environment where sci-fi and fantasy come together in an episodic, cinematic experience.
Pete Blumel, co-founder and CEO, The Rogue Initiative: The team is currently deep in development utilizing Unreal Engine 4 and excited to offer a closer look as we progress. We’re dedicated to building the narrative and world of Crowe in subsequent chapters and across various mediums including mobile VR and animation.
The plan is to launch Crowe worldwide for major high-end VR headsets on Windows and PS4 in 2017.
