Genre: ASCII VR Adventure

A Place Like No (ASCII VR) is a Virtual Reality Adventure demo for Oculus Quest 1&2. It is inspired by early 80s adventures like Rogue (1980), which due to a lack of graphics power drew their game worlds on screen using ASCII characters. Making a virtue of necessity, A Place Like No (ASCII VR) lets players explore such a world as if it were real. With its unique art style and game mechanics based on characters and words, the game takes players into a mysterious world full of danger and riddles, where everything seems to have a hidden meaning and words can change the world.

Platform: Oculus Quest 2, Oculus Rift, Valve Index
