Ares VR [In Development]

Ares VR is an upcoming VR stealth/puzzle/combat game.
Made by PoptartNoahh and CanyonJack.


Some features

  • Multiple locomotion/camera modes, including Armswinger, Snap Turn, and Smooth Turn
  • In-depth stealth systems that account for lighting, sound, alertness, heat signatures, and more.
  • Flatscreen support/debugger
  • Optimized destructible regions of the map, such as glass breaking or destructible wood.
  • Weight simulation for heavier objects, completely optional
  • Polished hand/interaction system that gives total control over objects. Weapon slides, various reloading methods, collapsible stocks, modular systems for weapon/world implementation.
  • Slow motion support
  • Optimized to a high degree, tested on various computers.
  • Various UI interaction methods, such as custom VR dialogs, physical fingerpressing, and laser pointers.
  • In-house plugins for map creation and framework management
  • Detailed haptics, including animated haptics.
  • Custom LOD system for performance.
  • Functional holographic reticles
  • Easy-to-use projectile system that respects time scale for slow motion
  • Weapons have full collisions with the world on top of custom CFrame handling.
  • Custom pathfinding systems for tight control over agent AI.
  • Simulated low-light NVG behavior.
  • Inverse kinematic arms (experimental and optional)

Resources are scarce, and increasingly difficult security drone encounters will drive Dianna Breuer to find creative ways of surviving and escaping the Ares Foundation facility.

This is first and foremost a story game, with a reusable framework as the bottom layer.
The game will be paid access, price and release date undecided. Beta testing undecided.

EDIT: We have a LOT of people in the discord with the VR role and I am no longer looking for testers.
Thank you to everyone who’s been keeping up with the project!

holy crap. this is insane! I literally cannot wait to play this!

i feel like the UI might be a bit hard to get used to (probably just me), as i am usually playing Pavlov, Population: One, and Boneworks. I feel like the entire “acquiring a mag” system could be done a bit better with a mag storage area on your hip; but its not that big of a deal.

I am able to test if you want! I currently use a Quest 2 with Oculus Link, and the tracking and quality is perfect.

There’s a belt system for magazines/grenades (see first video). The inventory system is still being changed around and is not in a finished state.

Oh my God this looks sick as heck. You put so much thought and detail into everything, this might be one of the most immersive VR experiences on Roblox. If you need a tester for the Valve Index, I have one and wouldn’t mind helping out. (It would be literally unreal if you were even able to get a functional control scheme on Index, to be honest)

This really is amazing. I really had no interest in VR games when it comes to Roblox, but that, just hits different. I feel like making a SAO MMO world inside this platform lol.

This is incredible. I don’t even know how its possible to make a roblox game look so good. I’d also love to be a tester.

Also how do those hands work?

looks like they are skinned meshes, and are manipulated on a controller button press. The smooth transitions are likely created using Tweens.
