Don’t Look Down Is Like The Climb But With More Lava

Was Crytek’s The Climb just not dangerous enough for you? Clambering up to the top of a mountain with your own two hands was just a little too easy? Then Don’t Look Down might just be for you.

This new Rift and Vive game from developer Catapult Games is set to take the climbing-based locomotion mechanic that works so well in VR (see Climbey and To The Top for more proof) in an entirely different direction. You’re still climbing a mountain, but this time you’ll have devious obstacles like spikey drones, cannon fire and handholds that turn into lava (!). Check out the gameplay in the trailer below, complete with an applause-worthy musical performance.

It might not have the graphical splendor of The Climb but we think Don’t Look Down genuinely looks like a lot of fun. It reminds us of a great little game from last year called The Tower in which you dodged obstacles as a conveyor belt took you further up an enormous castle. We’ll be interested to see how much content the full version of Don’t Look Down will offer in comparison to that.

You’ll get to try Don’t Look Down for yourself on Friday when a beta version launches on Itch.io. The full game is currently planned to release in March 2019 on Steam and Oculus Home.

Virtual Reality Doesn’t Replace Real Life. Strapping on a virtual reality headset is an amazing experience. In fact, it’s so realistic that you almost feel as if you’re visiting a location or taking part in an activity. But the key word in this sentence is “almost.” Virtual reality isn’t meant to replace real life, but instead enhance it. One of the best examples of this is how the travel industry uses virtual reality. For destinations and hotels, virtual reality is a research tool that enables potential guests get a glimpse of what it would be like to visit or book a room.
