(Update 2/16/2019):

Virtual Wave is currently a finalized Demo. A whole bunch of new features have been added including Enemies, Levels, Weapons, Adjustable Settings, Status Ailments, ect. Comment issues you might have below or email me at: FoxyPandaEDM@yahoo.com

Check out the Steam Store Page!


The year is 1985, you are a programmer working on the cutting edge of virtual reality and artificial intelligence. After tampering with your homemade A.I.'s moral code, it hacked into your virtual reality world and threatens to release all of it's minions into the real world. You must now enter into the virtual world you created to stop your A.I. before it is too late.


I originally created this engine back in 2010 during my senior year of high school for my programming independent study project. Since then I have added a number of different features and completely polished the engine to be almost unrecognizable from my original high school demo. Sometime March 2017 I will be releasing the game on Steam Greenlight in hopes to be approved for the Steam marketplace, be sure to keep in touch about what happens next with Virtual Wave!

Nice job! The music and art style are amazing, as well as the gameplay itself!

damn pretty fire

Hey there, I just finished playing your game, and I gotta say, pretty fantastic my dude. Here's a video of me playing if your interested in watching. Skip to 43:02 to see Virtual Wave.

how do i get to the next level?


Hi i need help, does anyone know what to do after the first area? im talking about the first door you open and go into the room with flames and there is jump pads. what to do next please?

Bloody amazing game

Hey What's up FoxyPanda! I made this gameplay video. To get the word out. I had a great time playing and blasting away at the monsters. Love the graphics. Hope you get everything squared away in Unity. Sucks that GMS 2 changed it functions. Can't wait to see a full release of Virtual Wave in the future. Have a good one!!


Hello! I was at mag-fest 2017 when I demo'd your game. I love it so very much and have played the beta to oblivion. I was just wondering if we would have a steam release date? Or just any release date in general, would love to know more! 


Virtual Wave has gone through a ton of changes since then and even this year. I began having issues with it running in windows 10 and attempted to port it into GameMaker Studio 2. I realized that GMS 2 changed all of the 3D functions and decided the best move was to port it into Unity instead. Currently Virtual Wave is in development in Unity, this port is moving along much faster and efficiently than GMS. Hopefully it will be finalized and released this year, a proper update on release will be announced soon. Thank you for your continued interest!

Had the privilege to play this awesome game a while back!
Reminds me a lot of Wolfenstein and DOOM, which is always a great formula for FPS games.
BUT this game kicks it up a notch with it's 80's style design, enemies, and great variety of weapons!
Really enjoyed playing this game, PLEASE keep on creating!

THANK YOU! I am not finished with this project, so stay tuned for the full game available on Steam soon!

Can't wait to see it! We will keep an eye out for it.

is it still getting updates?


It is not a dead project, this demo is finalized but the full game will be released on Steam sometime this year (hopefully).

Looking forward to playing it :)



Thanks for playing and the Video Review!

omg this game is amazing idk why people say its so hard i made it to the second level aka the lava level and yes then it got hard but all in all you just need to find a good strategy  and you can survive super long and yes i know this game has been out for a while but i hope you continue on it because i feel this game is just so much fun its got that nostalgic feeling when i play it and i love it so much so like i said i hope you keep up with this game cuz im gonna be playing it for a long time to see if i can beat the game fully!!! 

oh I'm still working on it ;)

Check My Twitter for more updates as my project develops. I plan to release this on Steam hopefully before the winter of this year. I've added so many new things; Weapons, Enemies, Levels, Music, Player Statuses, Items, ect. plus it's been completely reprogrammed to be way more efficient than before.


Awesome, although really hard. Voted on greenlight, good luck!

Thanks for playing and uploading a clip! I plan on adding more features to make jumping and dodging enemy attacks easier, currently it only works properly for the enemy projectiles. Stay tuned for the next update ♥ヾ(๑❛ ▿ ◠๑ )
