Twisted Pixel Announces Defector

Posted by:

Twisted Pixel is excited to announce Defector – our newest title with Oculus Studios – set to release this year!

“As an elite operative in Defector, your undercover assignments span the globe in dramatic, high octane settings. This is a zero-sum world where facing danger head-on is a requirement, and success favors those who embrace it. The opposition will bring their full force to bear and stop at nothing to gain an advantage. To defeat them, you and your team must use every advanced weapon, cutting-edge technology and deceptive tactic in your arsenal. The fate of every mission will be guided by your choices, big and small. And just when you think you’ve seen it all, the next mission will test your will like nothing before.” -Oculus

  • “Defector stands both as a creative endeavor and as a technical example of what VR is capable of.” – Nick Statt, The Verge
  • “What I really like, though, is that Defector doesn’t just rely on action set pieces to make you feel like a Bond-caliber badass: it’s got a whole conversation system, too, that lets you talk your way out of — or into — trouble.” – Ryan McCaffrey, IGN
  • “Honestly there’s nothing quite like it in VR right now.” – David Jagneaux, UploadVR
  • “This is where games are going – where every little subtle movement you have is in the game, and it affects how the world responds to you.” – Norman Chan, Tested
  • “There have a been a couple games similar come out across all VR platforms, but Defector feels different. The controls are smooth and intuitive the choices actually matter, and there appears to be a bit more logic and reasoning involved than in prior titles. It feels like something special for sure.” – Ben Smith, HandsomePhantom
  • “It was wonderfully uncomfortable in a way that simply wouldn’t have been at all if I wasn’t in VR, making it a really rather smart use of the medium that I haven’t seen before.” – Ben Lang, Road to VR
  • “It feels like a second generation VR game” – Jimmy Thang, VR Conduit
  • “Defector…is clearly headed towards something that could be a terrific and deep mix of action and adventure elements with a lot of variety that creates some impressive espionage moments.” – Kyle LeClair, Hardcore Gamer
