We’re pleased to introduce you to Augmented Empire, our upcoming Gear VR game. We revealed Augmented Empire at GDC and on social media last week, and Upload VR kindly posted a write-up detailing their hands-on with the game.

Augmented Empire is a Story-driven action RPG, set in New Savannah, a neo-noir city that sits on a man-made island in the North Atlantic. New Savannah hosts a three tier system in which people are divided depending on how valuable the government deems them.

We’ve created a cast of diverse and intriguing characters and we’ll lift the lid on some of them soon! With each playable character comes a class for you to master and a personality for you to love or hate.

We’ve done our best to include plenty of the trimmings that make RPGs memorable, fun and compelling. We have wanted to work on our own RPG for a long time, so we are looking forward to releasing Augmented Empire!

We’ll reveal more soon, until then keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter & Instagram accounts.

You may have seen a recent UploadVR article revealing that we are working on 3 Virtual Reality projects. 

This post serves as an official acknowledgement of that. We’ve been super busy working away on our next releases, after hiring in a batch of fresh talent to bolster our roster.

We don’t have much to say on any of the projects right now, but we will have news on one of them very soon.

Until then, have some concept art, which may or may not hint at what is to come.

Coatsink 2016: A Year In Review
Coatsink 2016: A Year In Review

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

Another year has passed and we have landed in 2017. We have a lot of great stuff coming up, but we will talk about that later. For now, it’s time to be reflect on our 2016.

Gadget Show Live

We kicked off the year by taking Esper 2 to The Gadget Show Live in Birmingham. It was a very tech-focused event, a little different to our usual haunts (gaming expos and conventions). We were psyched to be around so much cool stuff. We even got to leave with some free drones!

Esper 2 Launches alongside the Oculus Rift

CSOs

It was great to be right at the forefront of the birth of a new generation of Virtual Reality headsets. Esper 2 was an Oculus Rift launch title and got a little bit of screen-time at Oculus’ E3 presentation.

We continued our EGX Rezzed streak

We rocked up to EGX Rezzed again with a bevy of games to demo. We introduced players to a newer build of Shu, and gave them a taste of the Oculus Rift version of Esper 2. We also watched as people battled it out on Gang Beasts in VR. We also attended LOADS of other events, such as Insomnia, EGX, Gamescom and more.

Gang Beasts Online Multiplayer Beta Launch

We’ve been working alongside our good friends Boneloaf to give Gang Beasts an online multiplayer mode. Our coders have been doing code and stuff, to make the things do the stuff that we need them to. The Gang Beasts Online Multiplayer Beta was launched!

SuperGlad went to SuperSleep

SuperGlad

After much tossing and turning, we decided to put SuperGlad to bed – but not forever. We are still in love with Ruby and Lloyd, however, other super-secret projects had to take priority. It’s bittersweet news, but in the end our aim is to deal in nothing but delight, and who better to deliver that to you than Ruby and Lloyd?

Esper & Esper 2 got married

Well, sort of. We decided to fuse our flagship VR titles together to form Esper: The Collection on the Oculus Rift.

Shu Launched

image-075

We finally released Shu on PS4 and Steam! We were delighted to let Shu spread his wings so that he could glide his way into the hearts of gamers. Shu will be released on Vita early this year.

We grew!

Last but not least, the Coatsink family grew a considerable amount. We took on a number of talented artists, coders, animators, testers, and a PR manager. We plan to get together soon for an updated photo!

We hope you had a great 2016 too, even though it was pretty apocalyptic. Thanks for checking in with us, we will have more news for you soon.

In the meantime, keep up with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

Shu was created with speed-running in mind, so we want to reward the most accomplished and determined players by giving them something to aim for.

Owners of Shu on Playstation 4 and Steam are challenged to show us their best times from World 1 Level 1. Being the fastest this time around will earn you a Shu T-shirt and a set of cute Shu stickers.

If you want to join in with future time trials, Shu is currently 25% off on Steam, so now would be a great time to grab it.

Esper is a first-person Oculus Rift / Samsung Gear VR puzzle game set in 1975. Certain members of the public begin to display extra-sensory abilities and, in the interests of national security, the government panic and start forcing citizens to undergo aptitude tests.

As one of these people, you’ll be ‘encouraged’ by a contractor of the government to prove you’re not a threat. Put your wits to the test and use the power of telekinesis to make it through the trial so you can leave… safely?

Esper is now available for $4.99 on the Samsung Gear VR store!
