Nothin’ But Net wants to bring realistic basketball simulation to your living room or designated VR space. You can experience shooting hoops and practising ball skills in a realistic and accurately scaled gymnasium. Move freely around the entire gym and master dribbling, balancing, shooting across six different hoops and spinning the ball on your finger which is incredibly important for impressing your friends.
Challenge your friends in five online game modes including H.O.R.S.E., Knockout, Shot Blocker and Rapid Fire. Or, play solo in Free Throw and Rapid Fire game modes. There’s plenty of customisation options to personalise the experience including editing the court and your avatar. Plus you can shoot hoops to your music with the Steam Music Player. Developer What Up Games are aware that not everyone has the space for an intense physical VR experience or the desire to play this way so they incorporated settings for both sitting and standing.
Like every good VR experience, Nothin But Net doesn’t take itself too seriously. There’s plenty of options to destroy the gymnasium. Tired of basketballs? Start throwing the coolers, megaphones and anything else you can get your virtual hands on. Why not smash the ceiling lights while you’re at it.
Nothin But Net is shaping up to be a realistic and fun basketball experience that you can enjoy without having to wear pants. A demo is available now on Steam which requires a VR headset to play. There’s no word on release date, but the full game is expected soon. What Up Games are a two member team based in Washington. Nothin But Net is their third game.
