The development team behind Private Eye, a virtual reality (VR) compatible title that casts players as a private investigator, has posted an early version of the experience onto the Oculus VR Share Beta. While the title remains in development by programmer Jake Slack and co, players can experience the version of the title that was made for the 2013 Oculus VR Jam.
The title’s protagonist, Sam Sunderland, is a chair-bound PI with a room that overlooks an apartment block across the street. Using the Oculus Rift VR headset players gaze into the lives of the building’s occupants, taking note of any strange activity and potentially unraveling a murder plot. The full title is expected to expand on both the gameplay and story.
Private Eye was originally due to start a Kickstarter campaign for the full title in January 2014. The development team later decided to hold off however until he could release the first portion of the title alongside the campaign. There’s no word on just when that might. VRFocus will continue to follow the development of Private Eye and report back with all the latest.
