Wield the awesome power of the drums to kill dwarves and rescue Orc POWs in this VR rhythm game – available on Steam and the Oculus Store from Grind Core Games. A virtual reality music rhythm game that puts you in command of a giant orc rampaging across fantasy landscapes (and outright murdering whimsical magical creatures), Drums of War is the perfect blend of rhythm games and heavy metal music.
The game is the brainchild of Alan Flores, a 20-year game industry veteran who was the lead designer on Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock, Guitar Hero Metallica, Band Hero, Tony Hawk’s Project 8, Tony Hawk’s Underground 2, Sports Champions 2, and more.
In Drums of War, you hit the drums to the beat of the music to walk. Go “offbeat” … and your orc will veer off to one side! You can also bang on the side drums to turn – allowing for full 360 degrees of movement. But wait: There’s more! Your drums are also a powerful arsenal. The two center drums fire off deadly cannonballs – and you can also use the stick to throw fireballs. Take the fight to the dwarves, destroy their villages, and reclaim the right to once again call yourself “King of the Mountain.”
Drums of War is now available on the Rift Store and Steam for $9.74 at a 35% discount. On October 8, the game will return to its original retail price of $14.99.
Drums of War is available on the Oculus Store and Steam (HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Windows Mixed Reality). The game has been featured in a number of outlets – including Gaming Lyfe, The Geekiary, That Video Game Blog, The Gaming Ground, Flickering Myth, and VR Focus.
