NaissanceE now Oculus compatible!

Many people where asking for an Oculus Rift compatibility, it's now possible to experience the world of NaissanceE in virtual reality mode on Steam!

Warning! It's highly recommended to play the game in normal mode for the first time for a best experience. Oculus Rift is still in development and the compatible Unreal Engine 3 UDK build is quite old so expect some bugs and display artefacts.

DK2 is not supported, only DK1 is.

Warning! NaissanceE is not recommended for people with epilepsy, NaissanceE with Oculus Rift is highly not recommended for people with epilepsy!


How to play:
  • In Steam, right click on NaissanceE>properties>beta then choose the "ne-vr" build.
  • Set up the Oculus as secondary screen in Windows, in extended mode, not mirroring.
  • Launch the game and switch on fullscreen (in graphic menu or by pressing F11) to activate the HMD display.
  • Console commands can be found in the NaissanceE root folder if you need to make some adjustments (...\Steam\SteamApps\common\NaissanceE\UE3-Oculus.txt).
  • If you have any troubles, issues or just want to share your experience, please use the Steam forum.
  • Enjoy!

“NaissanceE’s world is an interactive Carceri, powerful beyond description.”
8/10 – GameSpot

“It’s an unusual, singular game that uses the normal tools of first-person shooter design (UDK) to make something plainly weird. I’d give it some kind of gold star for just being different.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“Limasse Five’s creation, NaissanceE, is loneliness. It’s an exploration of the self. It’s a test of will. It’s discovering your personal solace.”
Indie Statik

À propos de ce jeu

NaissanceE is a first person exploration PC game developed on UDK by Limasse Five with the participation of Pauline Oliveros, Patricia Dallio and Thierry Zaboitzeff.

The adventure takes place in a primitive mysterious structure and the game mainly consists to explore and feel the deep and strong ambiance of this atemporal world but platforming and puzzles areas will also enrich the experience.



NaissanceE is a game, a philosophical trip and an artistic experience.

The game is constructed along a linear path punctuated by more open areas to freely explore, some puzzles to solves and some more experimental sequences.

Going deeper and deeper in a primitive zone from “Naissance” world, the player will meet entities or mechanical systems. Whether those entities are life forms or pure machines, they react to player presence, to light and shadow and they may open access to the following.

If most parts of the journey will require only curiosity and logic, a good control and coordination on running, breathing and jumping actions will help to go through rare but exigent sequences, as an homage to old school die an retry games.

The main idea behind the game is to make the player appreciate the loneliness, the feeling to be lost in a gigantic unknown universe and to be marvelled by the beauty of this world. A world which seems to be alive, leading the player, manipulating him and playing with him for any reason.

Imagination is an important key to enjoy and understand NaissanceE. Walking in an undiscovered abstract structure brings questions about the nature of this world, about the meaning of this trip. Evocating and symbolic, the architecture and events will lead player’s imagination to find an answer, if it only matters.

Warning! This game is not recommended for people with epilepsy.

Ok.
J'ai peur de spoiler quoi que ce soit, mais jouez à ce jeu, si vous avez envie d'une expérience différente des jeux actuellement.
Dans NaissanceE, pas d'objectif, pas de dualité.
Fascinant.
Jouez-y, vraiment. =)

Magnifique jeu d'exploration puzzle plateforme, tant sur le level design que sur l'ambiance. Je n'aurai jamais cru trouver un design aussi beau alors que tout n'est que nuance de gris et contraste de lumiere.

P.S: A deconseiller aux gens ayant le vertige... L'ayant moi meme je peux vous dire que j'ai souffert a certains passage.

Great atmosphere in beautiful architectures and puzzles, there's something that makes you feel comfortable and uncomfortable at the same time :) Only thing that frustrates me is the vertical synchronization that I can't fix right now, otherwise, it's a pleasure (if you like being alone in an "endless" world ! ;))

Incroyable. Un jeu magnifique, des environnements gigantesques à en avoir le vertige, des énigmes un poil tordues, du troll, beaucoup d'étrangeté ... J'ai adoré chaque seconde de NaissanceE, hélas il est bien trop court, j'aurais tellement aimé plus parcourir cet univers, découvrir si derrière ces fenêtres allumées qui semblent issues d'un appartement il y a vraiment la vie, retrouver d'autres structures gigantesques ... PLEASE WE NEED MORE.

Tout en subtilité dans ses références et son gameplay, ce jeu propose tranquillement une expérience réellement extraordinaire, dans des environnements tour à tour immenses et exiguës, paisibles et opressants. On est bien malmenés, notamment par la musique, composées à trois têtes, par des acteurs de la musique électronique et comtemporaine.
Pour peu qu'on ait ni le vertige, ni qu'on soit claustrophobe, ce jeu est unique et magnifique.

Je n'ai qu'un seul mot à dire: SUBLIME. Ce jeu est juste extraordinairement immersif! Complètement dépaysé, le jeu s'amuse avec nous! Il n'y a aucun screamer à la con mais pourtant j'ai eu des frissons! L'ambiance est à couper le souffle, les animations et le moteur graphique sont génialissimes. La 4K et le son 5.1 pour parfaire le tout!
Je recommande fortement pour les joueurs qui ont envie de casser les codes et de découvrir des jeux hors du commun!

Alors c'est un FPS sans arme, sans ennemi, sans histoire et sans texture.
Et pourtant, brodel de mazette : quelle aventure !
T'as du Limbo, du Antichamber (en pas chiant), du Journey, du Portal, du Dear Esther, du Another World, du Blade Runner, du StarGuerre, du 2001, et même un peu de Plus belle la vie si t'as oublié d'éteindre la TV dans l'autre pièce.
À jouer de préférence le soir, en hiver, avec une fenêtre entr'ouverte et le chauffage à 15.

An experience that reminded me of the 'Mountains of Madness' by Hp Lovecraft. Also it has a Ridley-Scott feel to it. I felt chased or watched at times. Haven't experienced such a good and immersive atmosphere in a long, long time.

NaissanceE was one of those undiscovered gems on steam. Hidden in the loud and ever-changing steam library, this beauty rests. Unlike most games that I play, NaissanceE was one of the first that moved me. It truly shows how digital experiences like NaissanceE are becoming an art.
First things first, NiassanceE is absolutely beautiful. French game developer Mavros Sedeno has a great eye for design, style and lighting. The numerous worlds you explore in NaissanceE are absolutely amazing, and it is obvious that the developer put a lot of time into creating them. The music choices and sound design in NaissanceE are two of the main components of the game’s dark atmosphere, making the experience much more immersive. The strange machine universe of NaissanceE feels so...alien. I always wonder why things were built and the absence of life. But for some reason, this feeling of loneliness is almost comforting. The long sterile hallways or the enormous underground cities can create a calming atmosphere when pared with the subtle instrumental soundtrack. The experience still sticks in my mind even when finishing the game a long time ago. The story isn’t very direct. Everything that takes place in NaissanceE is really up to your imagination, The experience could be different for everyone. I personally think that the world of NaissanceE is a version of hell, and that the fragments of human civilization could relate to memories of the protagonist. I mean, the name of the game means “birth” in french, so the game’s ending could mean the escape of hell into life once again. I just feel like the story is very phycological. I am not religious at all, so I don’t know many of the stories, but it could be a re-creation of one too.
NaissanceE isn’t a game for everyone. The type of storytelling in NaissanceE is very subtle and ambiguous, containing no dialogue or characters to lead the way (Very much like LIMBO). Personally, I really enjoy this way to tell a story since the experience can be much more interesting when your imagination tells the story. There isn’t really anything in NaissanceE that is mature, only that when you get hurt blood lines circle your vision for a period of time. The game does simulate intense themes, such as insanity, but nothing really direct. NaissanceE also has a haunting feeling at times, but only to create a better atmosphere. Although, you need a very powerful PC to play it, so just a heads-up to the people who have one. I really want the developer to get the support he deserves for creating such an amazing game.

I have a mixed opinion with this game, the first half was great, spectacular visuals and atmosphere that spurred on the imagination making me want more. I found it hard to stop playing and wanted to continue on with anticipation as to what was next but about three quarters the way through it changed and I felt I was playing a completely different game, and a poorly written one at that. The puzzles went from challenging and satisfying to complete to just floundering around in the dark or ridiculous headache inducing light and visuals eventually being able to move onto more disappointment to the point I almost stopped playing all together.
I completed the game and was left scratching my head wondering what had happened and because of the disapointment factor I wouldn't recommend this game.

Short, wonderful game. Takes place in a beautiful and threatening brutalist city of indeterminate size and age built out of ambient occlusion. Reminiscent of the art of Piranesi and Tsutomu Nihei.

Lost in a vast brutalist structure. It's beautiful, but marred by some frustrating jumping puzzles. Play it for the atmosphere and architecture, and try to get past the iffy gameplay choices.

Imagine having a fever dream, in which you are submerged in a universe where space and time is made out of an unknown grey solid material. Matter is space, light is time and you are the only sentient being in existence. As you slowly unravel the dream, you pass through phases of ease and unease, and in your psychedelia and hallucinations spawned by a broken brain, you dream up senseless rules, quests and objectives, in order to turn the tides of terror and bliss and slowly progress through your illness.

If you like psychelic experiences, this game is for you. The above contains no spoilers, but is simply the best way I could describe the game. I played through Naissancee in more or less one sitting (about 5 hours), and I'd argue this is the way the game is meant to be played, as it gives that feeling of going ever and ever deeper into the rabbit hole.

tl;dr: totes worth €15
Note that while the game is generally easy on the eyes, it has a couple of sequences (5-10 minutes in total at most) that will break any person with epilepsy. This is no joke, I had to cover my eyes because I was getting dizzy.

NaissanceE is a beautiful creation. Void of words, it creates experience through emotion and visual splendor. I saw things I could not understand the meaning or purpose of, but I enjoyed every minute of my playthrough. It's a hidden gem!

Naissance is a first person exploration/platforming game that really tests your dexterity, patience and above all else, it tests your mind.

As a game, naissance will throw a myriad of light shows and spectacular vistas at the player, the scenery here
is some of the most atmospheric you're likely to come across in any game to date. These vistas are seriously grand in scale, traveling through massive industrial emptiness to an abstract and claustraphobic dome that seems to defy the very laws of physics, the game will test your perception and direction as light flickers through shapes and obtuse angles resulting in, at times a very disorientating and uncomfortable experience. Atmosphere is the strongest element in Naissance, it reminds me of the cold confines of H.R.Gigers biomechanical art, it also reminds me of Blade runners dystopian cityscape and Halo's towering architecure. I can certainly see the influence on Naissance.

Platforming and exploring, plus a few puzzles here and there is really all this game is about. Its the world you inhabit that, to me personally, is one of the most interesting and original ive had the pleasure of witnessing. The gameplay revolves around moving through what can only be described as some sort of machine, from pont A to B there will be some tricky platfoming and the odd mind bendingly strange puzzles to contend with, this is the pattern each chapter takes, you are clueless as to why you inhabit this world and the story never explains itself beyond what you interpret yourself. The first half of the game is a lot more open than the second half, which places you in smaller confines with considerably harder platforming sections. These section will frustrate the player and the checkpoint system is far too spread apart resulting in some annoying repetition. All in all though, Naissance is certainly unique and definitely warrants a journey into its hautingly vast abyss.

+ Amazing and atmospheric world
+ Simple and responsive gameplay
+ Interesting platforming and puzzles

- Checkpoint system is poor
- Non existent story
- Navigating world can be frustrating.

Overall:
8/10
