Silver Dice Games Inc. have launched their first VR title, Random Acts of Madness. This experience offers a blend of physical and intellectual challenges set in a vibrant, feel-good, and psychedelic realm painted with vivid colors and boundless joy.

In Random Acts of Madness, players embark on a journey towards a mysterious castle. Along the way you’ll have to navigate a narrow path filled with unexpected challenges, presented by mischievous Henchmen. These challenges take place on Showdown Rings designed to test players’ logic and reflexes. Quick-thinking microgames, ranging from solving puzzles to interactive movements like throwing explosive critters or feeding hungry flying pigs. It all sounds a bit VR WarioWare to us. And that’s a good thing.

However, according to the developers, what sets Random Acts of Madness apart is its control system. The game translates real-life jogging movements into in-game motion. Yet, Silver Dice Games have ensured accessibility with a less physically demanding option for those who can’t jog in place. Simple arm motions provide a simulated jogging effect, ensuring that everyone can experience the game. The game’s basic grabbing and throwing motions required to solve challenges are subtly assisted. This means that tasks which might be challenging in real life become achievable within Random Acts of Madness.

Once players reach the end of the path, a formidable ‘Sky Serpent Battle’ awaits. This showdown plays out as a larger-scale version of the challenges faced along the path, testing your skills to the max. Upon victory, the castle gates reveal yet another path. Each time with a different environment backdrop, fresh Henchmen challenges, and an elevated level of difficulty.

“Drawing inspiration from titles like WiiFit and WarioWare, it offers diverse gameplay within its unique, absurd universe,” states the press release. “RAM’s unwavering commitment to inclusivity and the delight of whimsical absurdity solidifies its position as an exceptional contribution to the expanding realm of Virtual Reality gaming.”

Random Acts of Madness is available now on AppLab, priced at $15 USD. Are you interested in some frantic, ‘random’ activities in VR? Let us know in the comments below!
