Paris, 2021. You are in the subway, commuting to your home. You watch the city from the window of the train, the weather is clear and you can see a beautiful sunset reflecting on the Seine.
The apparent calm hides a deadly threat. Soon your train suddenly stops, the power shuts down and the panic takes over the city. You receive a message from your scared little brother elsewhere in the city and the network dies too.
Trying to get out of the now dark and gloomy subway station of Bastille, you discover a creepy cloud floating in the corridors. It is composed of million of miscroscopical particles, moving in a swarm.
You just met the deadly nanites. They are everywhere, the city is descending into chaos, the army is placing checkpoints, and destroys bridges to stop the attack. None of its action seems effective.
The day the nanites are dormant and use solar energy to get power. The night, people and animals are eaten alive by the swarm.
Will you survive ? Will you find your brother ? Will the humanity be able to overcome this threat ?
In VR 6dof you will be able to grab objects, open doors, hit enemies with your own hands and live the fall of Paris in the most immersive way. We take the most of the 6dof controllers given by the Oculus and Vive gear to make you live the game.
The game will have multiple type of gameplay sequences :
- Shooting sequences : people eaten by the swarm are aggressive as their nervous is the first target. They are little by little under control of the nanites before being fully consumed and abandonned partially decomposed.
- Puzzle sequences : in the collapsed subway you often will have to use in the best way possible every object you have at your disposal in order to go forward.
- Dicussion sequences : When meeting characters in the game you will have the ability to discuss with them. The discussions will have multiple choices and can end in several ways. Say the right words and the character will give you items or informations. Say the wrong words and anything can happen.
The centers of many cities on the planet are the scene of deadly confrontations between populations and assimilated, in a world very similar to ours at the beginning of the attacks. The story will take place mainly in the city of Paris.
The city will gradually become a large quarantine area where the only livings are survivors, assimilated and military forces.
The enemies of Project TERMINUS come from a combination of robotics and biology. They have been contaminated by swarms composed of billions of nanites that will take control of their host by replacing the functions exercised by the brain of the individual, which kills him.
These swarms are a constant threat in the quarantine areas seeking to infect as many livings as possible. The origin of these nanites is unknown even though several theories are advanced by many people.
The game is aimed to be released in VR (HTC Vive, Oculus Rift / Rift S, Oculus Quest) and desktop.

We are Jérôme, Michaël and Mehdi, three devs passionate about VR gaming and gaming technologies in general. We created our game studio in 2018 and been working as partner for several customers and companies making immersive learning and training.
After making some VR experiences and trying interesting way of interacting in VR, we decided to truly launch our main project.
Don't hesitate to get in touch with us. We'll be glad to discuss about the game or anything else !
Project TERMINUS finally arrives on Steam! We are very happy to propose our game on this iconic platform.
Our promise of a truly multi-platform game is still kept since any previous buyer of TERMINUS will have access to a Steam key upon request in the contact form on our website, and any future buyer of TERMINUS, whether on Steam or on our website, will have access to an Oculus Quest version in addition to its PC version.
The game is always playable across all platforms: a Quest player can play with DRM-free PC players and Steam PC players, and vice versa.
