Harmonix, developer of Rock Band and the upcoming Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved,Tweeted that it's working on software for the device –– no specifics accompanied the announcement, but Harmonix said more would be coming soon.
Several specific games have been announced, however, including a new game from Ustwo Games, the team that created this year's Monument Valley, the mobile puzzle title. Land's End is being called a "surreal trip through an archipelago of forgotten worlds." The game's art on its siteappears similar to Monument Valley, but more details have yet to be revealed.
In addition to The Room Three, developer Fireproof Games announced Omega Agent on its Facebook page. The latter is being developed exclusively for Samsung's new device –– the game is set on a remote island with a training facility, and players have a nuclear-powered jetpack with which they can travel throughout a spy-filled city.
Finally, Darknet, a title already confirmed for Oculus Rift, is being developed for Gear VRas well. Players play the part of a cyber hacker that must break through a firewall to retrieve sensitive data.
Samsung's Gear VR pairs with the newly revealed Galaxy Note 4, utilizing the phone's display and dual-lenses to create a 3D effect. The device's beta version will release this fall, while the final consumer product has no specified release date.
