Indie developer Bad Touch Studios has launched a Kickstarter campaign for its upcoming first-person shooter, Trapped! The project is looking to raise $15,000 USD by 3rd May 2014 in order to fund development of the title. Should the campaign surpass both this and a stretch goal of $60,000 then the team will implement support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset. The title is aiming to release in March 2015 on PC, Mac and Linux.
Trapped! casts players as Alan Thorgon, who survives an attack on his town of St. Louis, Missouri by stowing away on a nearby colony spaceship. The vessel escorts Thorgon to the planet of AC3, where he uncovers a strange alien sculpture before being kidnapped. Not much has been shared about how the title will play out, although a brief glimpse at the footage suggests it will have a focus on exploration.
The $60,000 stretch goal is preceded by a $30,000 one to hire more programmers and 3D artists as well as a $45,000 one to port the title to smartphone operating systems. Fans can pledge $10 to pick up a digital copy of the title, while $10,000 will net you producer credits, 2 signed copies of the title.
VRFocus will continue to follow the progress of Trapped! and bring you all the latest.
