Dream Dev On Story, Gameplay and Oculus Rift
Dream has dreams. An upcoming first-person adventure title, developer Hypersloth Games wants its project to move away from the ‘walking simulator’ criticisms of its indie contemporaries and start challenging players with puzzles and exploration that adds more to the narrative. VRFocus recently spoke to studio co-founder Ashley Stancill at the 2014 EGX Rezzed expo about the title.
In the interview above Stancill talks about Dream‘s story and the developer’s ambitions to stop holding player’s hands. Of course, he also talks about developing for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset and what it’s like to use within the title. The developer also recently revealed that it is ‘talking’ to Sony about a possible PlayStation 4 and Project Morpheus port.
An Early Access version of Dream can be picked up now. It includes the first 2 acts from the title as well as Oculus Rift support. VRFocus will continue to follow the title leading up to the full release, whenever that may be.
