Developer Adds Buying Oculus Back as Kickstarter Stretch Goal

Twinbeard Studios, the developer behind maths-based videogame Frog Fractions 2 has added an option to buy back Oculus Rift makers Oculus VR from Facebook on its Kickstarter campaign after yesterday’s acquisition. The developer, who had already jokingly added a stretch goal of $350,000 USD to add virtual reality (VR) support back way of the Oculus Rift, asked for the same amount of money Facebook bought Oculus VR for ($2 billion) to make this possible.

Minecraft creator Markus Persson cancelled his Oculus Rift project after hearing about the news, which has split fans on the interest down the middle too. Other stretch goals for Frog Fractions 2 include comical suggestions such as adding in Half-Life 2‘s Gravity Gun for $180,000 but then removing it again for $230,000.

Facebook and Oculus VR are yet to discuss their long-term plans together, although it’s been suggested that the latter’s operations won’t be changing much at least for now. VRFocus will continue to follow the deal and report back with all the latest news.
