About

Press Reactions "I get the sense that this could be the breakthrough game for VR storytelling. The Assembly's atmosphere and atypical setting evoke memories of BioShock, Half-Life, and Dishonored.” Gamesradar+ “It's the first VR game I've played that feels like something I can sit down with for an hour or more at a time, thanks in equal parts to an intriguing story, lovely world detail, and gamepad controls that ingeniously solve many of the long-standing problems with medium.” PCGamesN “At one point in the game, the decision I was forced to make actually brought tears to my eyes, which was very surprising; that's how immersed I was in the story.” Tom's Hardware "The Assembly is a promising sight: a virtual reality game that unfolds in a smart way and treats its players maturely.” Bit-Gamer “One of the most fascinating game experiences I’ve had all year.” Kotaku “The Assembly has one of the most thought out and established worlds of any upcoming VR experience.” IGN “nDreams have created a beautifully realistic world.” “It blew my mind – there is no other way to say it.” God is a Geek “The Assembly brings VR to a whole other level.” Hardcore Gamer “nDreams have crafted a richly detailed universe full of memorable people and moments.” Upload VR “The Assembly truly looks and feels like the next generation of adventure games.” Gaming Nexus "The Assembly is an engaging and well produced game, made with genuine enthusiasm for sharing what VR has to offer.” Digital Trends "The Assembly's moody cold palette and ambient sounds work to create an atmosphere that feels frightfully tense, especially when you're trespassing in your co-workers offices and prying for information.” Game Reactor “Although the game is done from a first person perspective, we’re happy to report that we didn’t experience any kind of sickness during our game time – clocking in close to an hour in fact!” VR Source “I found myself genuinely invested in the outcome, and challenged by both the puzzles and the moral quandaries set before me.” Road to VR “Definitely recommended for fans of old-school style point-and-click adventure games, or gamers that enjoy solving a good mystery.” Upload VR “The Assembly is a worthy investment for VR aficionados.” VR Focus About the Game A first-person interactive story for mature audiences, The Assembly is a long-form game designed from the ground up for VR.

The Assembly is a well-packaged Story about a laboratory in Nowhere and is about a Doctor who already works for The Assembly but uncovers various Machinations and a Female Doctor who has quit her Profession in the Past because of "immoral" Experiments And now completed the recruitment Test for The Assembly. Through this Division of History, one gets to know the two Aspects of the secret Organization. The crude inner and the friendly "outside" if new People are to be hired. Overall, The Assembly offers some good Puzzles. These are not too difficult to solve, but are Fun. The Motion Control is a bit more convenient, because you can either run with the X-Box Controller (jerky in very small Increments) or port (usually the better Choice). When you port, you can see your own Character where and how it will stand, but you only ever stand in the current Direction of view. This is a bit of a Shame that one does not set oneself here according to the "Holo figure." The Game, in my Opinion, completely Solves motion sickness through the Types of Locomotion, even if this doesn't work ideally yet. Verdict: I can fully recommend the Game to anyone who likes a popcorn cinema story and a few Puzzles. The Overall implementation is great, the Story is well told and you feel well put in in the Episodes of the People. Only the Playing Time of just under 2 Hours is unfortunately a bit short.

Absolute Recommendation! An exciting Adventure, without any physical Violence. Gering from an interesting Story in which you exchange between two Protagonists in several Chapters. You interact with Computers and there are various Puzzles to solve. There are at least two different Endings to be played. The one I saw could look like a second Part to me ... So far, there are not many Games of this Kind in the VR area, that it is then also Playable completely in German Makes it almost a Mandatory purchase. The German Speakers are very well chosen and sound professional. Finally being able to play without Subtitles is nice, especially since Subtitles in VR are always a bit annoying. The Introduction to the Story is somewhat irritating, the Player gets told it in the Ego Perspective and the Protagonist sits there in a Wheelchair while standing himself. It can happen that you go through the Rolli or the like. But The Graphics are apt and you feel fast in the Action. Unfortunately, there is no real Roomscaling, so it is possible to walk through Walls (see above), but you can only look into other Rooms, not interact with Things there. This can only be done if there is also "official" Access to this Room. The Control is O.K., unfortunately there is no free Movement by Pad, only Teleportation and a somewhat useless Flashing. There could be further improvements. Teleport control Is definitely Playable and at some point you don't notice that anymore. Especially since you can move around in your Play Area. The Interactions, of course, could be even more diverse, as in any VR game, but that might then just distract from the Story. Beware of Dustbins-I am often attached to them-especially when standing next to Doors. An excellent Game!
