29 SEPTEMBER 2021 - Developer Five Finger Studios is delighted to announce their upcoming VR zombie adventure The Living Remain will be coming to Steam and Oculus headsets.

The Living Remain is a gritty first person shooter putting players into the role of Grant, a former soldier desperately searching for his family in the midst of a terrifying zombie apocalypse. With a whole arsenal of weapons and tools available, players can take on the horde or explore and scavenge their way through derelict environments.

By utilising a creative radio mechanic, players can expertly navigate the zombie-infested concrete jungle with the help of another survivor, Alex.

The announcement comes with a debut trailer, which showcases the high-quality graphics, physics-based environments and, of course, the zombie horde. Built exclusively for VR, The Living Remain challenges players to face death head on with a compelling survival experience.   [Continues below]

Stephen and Pamela Marshall, co-founders of Five Finger Studios said: "Our vision with The Living Remain was to create a VR game that incorporated ideas from some of our favorite genres of movies and videogames, while creating an experience that we would want.

"This meant taking on a project that felt much bigger than us, but that only motivated us to keep going.

"It meant so much to be able to create something from the ground up, and offer players a fun and immersive experience."

Players can watch the announcement trailer and wishlist the game over on its Steam page
