The Room was a phenomenal game when it hit Android last year (after first blowing iOS users' minds in 2012). The sequel, The Room Two (who would have guessed?), continued the stunning 3D puzzle-y goodness. Now developer Fireproof Games has announced that the third entry in the series will come in spring 2015.

Coming shortly after Samsung's Gear VR unveiling, Fireproof Games is also keen to point out that it has an upcoming title already in the works specifically for the virtual reality headset. The game goes by the name of Omega Agent.

The exclusive takes place on a remote island facility where cold-war spies are trained. Players will get to strap on a nuclear-powered jetpack and fly around a vibrant city while under-taking risky missions. If it sounds vomit-inducing, wait until you see the provided screenshot.

Considering that a version of Temple Run has also been announced for the headset, it looks like Gear VR early adopters will have more than a handful of apps and videos to play with when they eventually immerse themselves in Samsung's virtual reality experience.

    Just bought some lenses and what not to make my own VR headset, but it looks like the good stuff will be Gear VR exclusive. FML.

    Does anyone know of any similar games to tide me over until The Room Three comes out, or do I have to play The Room Two over and over again until spring? lol

    Mmm, 'exclusive', as if there are ten top-line VR headsets, fighting for a market dominamce.

    It's hard to interpret, but it sounds like iOS will once again get it first and Android fans will have to wait. If so, I'm really getting tired of this crap. Developers need to stop believing the old adages of developing for iOS first. The market with Android is WAY bigger.

      There are more Android users, but there are more people willing to pay for apps on iOS than Android. A lot more.

      There are also far fewer iOS device, which makes development significantly easier.

      If you're tired of this crap, think about how the developers feel!

        Perhaps that's because Android receives very little support from developers? I mean they've gotta meet their users halfway.

        I saw an app developer on G+ commenting about why they haven't released an Android version of one of their (free) apps. They said they have nowhere near as many Android users as iOS users for their other app. Makes sense right?

        Well if you go and look at their other app on the Play store there are loads of pissed off reviewers because the Android version of the app is just plain terrible. So they're creating their own shortage of Android users, and then using that as justification for not trying. Ridiculous.

    when are these phones getting HDMI-IN?
    that would be useful for VR (wireless input doesn't work. not enough bandwidth and way too much display lag)

    At first glance of the the title , I thought some OEM actually presented Fireproof device now that waterproof has passed :P.. lmao
