A downloadable game for Windows

A Guy and his Hero is a student project led by a team of 6 students in first year of JMIN master at CNAM-ENJMIN, Angoulême, France.

This video game project is an initiation rite for us, our first "big" project planned on 3 months. The game has to be at least a 10 minutes experience. During those, the player should be able to understand the gameplay rules. This is quite a challenge for us as we never developed on VR before.

This project has been led by a strong proposal from Alexandre, our Graphic Designer. He wanted to make a game inspired by board games and child toys in Virtual Reality using the HTC Vive technology.

Everyone has once dreamed to follow a hero in his quest, to overview him, to be both storyteller and divine figure over a little world.

This dreamt world is what A Guy and his Hero is about. That's why the rest of the team joined the project, to get the opportunity to feel this adventure again. Feel free to help this hero through his journey in a beautiful Mediterranean environment, he will need your presence to succeed.

We take part to the Hits Play Time contest and we are currently preparing to apply to other national and international events.

We're actually going through development process and a first playable prototype will be released next week. You can follow our work on the Facebook page, the Youtube Channel, the and Twitter.

Our Tumblr page is alimented with new visual & technical content every week for the Hits Play Time contest. Feel free to check regularly the blog, but also to follow and repost our work !

Install instructions

In order to play to A Guy and his Hero, you must own a complete HTC Vive installation (headset, cameras & controllers).

After downloading the package, just decompress it using your usual tool and launch the .exe file in the root folder.


You must initialize your material (headset, cameras & controllers) before lauching the game. Otherwise, the devices will not be recognized by some triggers and you will be quickly stopped in your experience.

Also, be sure to have an audio headset on correctly (left on left, right on right) as the sound is spatialized and important for the gameplay.

Thank you for reading and have a good time playing our game :)
