What Is This Game?
Apollo X is a Sci-Fi horror game that uses Virtual Reality, Biofeedback technology and a mobile phone. It is an adaptive type of game that changes according to the player's heart rate. The more scared the player is, the scarier and more difficult the game becomes. This allows the player to become more self aware of their emotions and try to stay calm.
The game features single player with an intriguing story line and creative gameplay. It also includes a multiplayer mode that allows a player on PC to cooperate with a player on mobile. The two players take the role of the two main characters and need to overcome the challenges brought before them using a unique way of cross-platform play.
VR and heart rate monitors are OPTIONAL. The game is fully playable without them.
Single Player: Play as Alex exploring the dark sinister spaceship, trying to find your missing members and a way out this nightmare. Experience the breathtaking story and dynamic challenges with experience enhancers such as VR and heart rate monitoring.
Cross-Platform Multiplayer: A unique gameplay that allows players to play with mobile users using a companion app. It also supports voice chat with a challenging twist. Mobile players must guide PC players out of the area by looking at the map they're provided and guiding them out while PC players must find items and solve puzzles to allow mobile players to help them escape, all while avoiding the dangers in the dark spaceship.
Heart Rate Monitor Integration: Capability to adapt to the player's heart rate by connecting to one of the supported heart rate monitors. The game will measure fear and occur real time changes in game like lights, sounds and environment. A different system is in mind for those that do not own a heart rate monitor so no one is left out from the full experience.
