“We are tremendously excited about Episode I, Scraper: First Strike and glad to have established launch dates,” said Jim Ivon, CEO and Founder of Labrodex. “With this being our first VR release, we have some butterflies as we send our creation ‘out into the wild’ but we are hopeful VR gamers will appreciate the uniqueness of the title. Scraper: First Strike is an original RPG Sci-Fi Shooter with 360-degree full locomotion, large levels to explore, engineering, scavenging, modifications and numerous other RPG elements all enmeshed in a really fun shooter.”
Scraper: First Strike is a fully evolved IP and the first of 5 episodes being launched in advance of its full release on next-gen consoles in 2020. At its heart, the game is an original RPG sci-fi shooter that pays homage to the great Mech Warrior classics and RPG shooters. It places gamers in the future megacity of New Austin, Texas, where they must battle renegade robots in high-rise skyscraper complexes to save humanity.
From the prequel book, Scraper: The Rise of Cifer written by renowned sci-fi author Ryder Windham to the aforementioned soundtrack by video game industry legend, Winifred Phillips, the production value of Scraper: First Strike is on par with established triple-A console games and as a result, plays like one.
