As the kaiju in this VR installment, Block Buster provides you with a toybox filled with destructible environments and prizes. This is the sort of title that many pop culture fans would latch onto. Standing tall above human level is you: the monster. Your sole purpose is to tear cities apart while collecting various rewards. Additionally, players can search for weapon parts as they continue to fight off enemy forces. Of course, this all leads to one epic final battle.
To truly become your monster in Block Buster, the developers provide multiple customization options. This goes for both your kaiju monster and any accumulated weaponry. These can be found while completing the primary and secondary tasks in the game. You can check out the announcement trailer for Block Buster here to get a taste of the carnage.
The co-founders of Happy Kamper Pictures are looking forward to the VR project’s reception. In their words, they briefly explain the creative inception that came into play for Block Busterstarting with Doug Herzog:
My co-founder and I grew up together, writing scripts, making our own comics and movies, and getting into certain pop culture fandoms. Brent’s [Kappel] really into Kaiju and things like Jurassic Park while I’m into Gundam. We shared a business specializing in drone photography, 3D rendering, and VR for the architecture sector and one day realized we could use those same skills to create the ultimate monster versus city game.”
Co-founder Brian Kappel commented:
There is something so innately fun about stomping about, smashing things, and knocking things over. We saw an opportunity to bring that fantasy to life while paying homage to the whole Kaiju genre and fandom collecting culture that surrounds it.”
