Craft Keep VR Reaches Full Release Tomorrow, 21st April

Banbury, Oxfordshire – 20th April 2017

“Best actual VR game I've ever played. So much fun, you need to get this! [Craft Keep VR] has knocked it out of the park.” These are words from the one and only Mark Turpin, CEO of Yogscast.

After releasing in Early Access, back in November 2016, Craft Keep VR is now ready for its full launch on 21 st April! In the months since then and now, we’ve added six new chapters and environments, as well as various gameplay mechanics.

The Shoppe Keep spin-off tasks players with becoming a blacksmith-come-alchemist, creating masterful weapons and potions. The final release, this Friday 21 st April, brings Trading Cards and achievements to Craft Keep VR, so there are more reasons than ever to play!


About Craft Keep VR

Utilising the HTC Vive’s Room-Scale features, and the Oculus Rift’s Touch Controllers, Craft Keep VR sees the player walk around their own shop and sell items to customers. Ordering individual items of stock, players craft their own potions, swords, daggers and more. And while stepping inside the fantasy world of Craft Keep VR is enthralling, players feel the pressure, needing to fulfil orders quickly enough the customers are satisfied.
