Quanero lets you experience the grit and violence of a futuristic dystopian bar from the comfort and safety of your home. Quanero is an experimental VR game where you take on the role of a pseudo-detective who’s tasked with figuring out what caused a violent incident in the bar. You possess the ability to manipulate time. You can slow down time, reverse it or bring it to a complete halt. Explore the scene, unlock the stories branching paths and unravel the mystery that culminates in a deadly explosion.
Quanero is a project developed by a group of students from the University of Applied Sciences in Salzburg. The game was developed using the Unreal Engine 4 and took the team twenty weeks of intense work to. Quanero is designed to be played with the HTC Vive although it is playable without it. Oculus Rift support will only happen if the demand is there. Best of all, you can download Quanero right now for free. You can grab it on Steam here.
