For a game that promises fast-paced grappling hook gameplay, you would be forgiven for assuming that you might feel a little sick after playing. However, the developers have announced that the game does not cause motion sickness. Having tried out the game for a few hours, I would have to agree with the developers, there is absolutely no motion sickness in this shooter.In a thread about the game, one of the developers, Jdconnel, wrote:
“Yeah, I know the motion looks insane, but we've been testing SWARM for months. Hundreds of people have tried this, we recruited lots of people who self-identified as getting motion sickness, and none of them have gotten it.”
This seems to have been confirmed by another user, domzae, a beta tester of the game, who wrote in another thread:
Virtual reality has captured to the interest of Baby Boomers, Generation Z and Millennials.
“I also got to play test it last year and had the same experience. Not having any motion sickness and being able to accurately fire ropes out of sight of the quest's cameras were huge surprises. The art style isn't really my jam but the flow of the gameplay was good enough to be able to see past that!”
