Farjay Studios has announced that its upcoming title, Bear Simulator, could be getting virtual reality (VR) support via the Oculus Rift headset. The studio confirmed as much on its recently-launched Kickstarter campaign, which is hoping to raise $29,500 USD to get the title funded and released.
Possible support is listed in a section on where the funding will go. It reads: “An updated Mac for OSX testing and some other hardware like additional storage, software and maybe an Oculus Rift.” This suggests that Farjay is yet to acquire an actual developer kit for the Oculus Rift. If that’s the best, then the developer will be looking to pick up the recently-announced DK2, as the original version has now sold out.
On top of that, ‘possible Oculus Rift support’ is also listed under the title’s features.
Bear Simulator is a first-person experience in which players live the life of a wild bear. You’ll have to survive by fishing, stealing honey and more while exploring the surrounding enivronment. The title mixes RPG elements, meaning players can level up certain stats such as stamnia. The developer hopes to release the title in November 2014. VRFocus will report back when Oculus Rift support is clarified.
