White Paper Games, the developer behind the recently released Ether One, has confirmed that it has always had ‘consideration’ for a console version of the PC title in mind. Speaking to VRFocus at the EGX Rezzed event in Birmingham last week the team’s Pete Bottomley claimed that the virtual reality (VR) compatible title would be a good fit for console. The team has also revealed that it is a licensed PlayStation developer, meaning the title could come to PlayStation 4 in the future.
“I’m a PC gamer myself but I also have a Sony PlayStation as well,” Bottomley reasoned. “So it’s just the first-person experience; slow-burning gameplay. When I was first designing it I always wanted to make it accessible, so you never have to do too many button clicks at the same time. So we’ve got an Xbox controller that works with the PC and it works totally fine on there so it’s good for both PC and console because we always had that consideration in mind.
Ether One received VRFocus‘ first 5/5 score when it released in March 2014. It’s a first-person adventure in which players explore the mind of a mentally-handicapped patient. It also features support the Oculus Rift VR headset. Should the title find its way to PlayStation 4 then it will hopefully utilise the Project Morpheus headset too. However the developer has stressed that it needs to make sure it can afford such a port before it becomes a reality. VRFocus will be bringing you the full interview with Bottomley tomorrow.
