Indie developer PostMod Software’s The Old City has officially passed its Steam Greenlight campaign. The upcoming adventure title will now be sold on Valve’s digital store come full release. It is set to arrive with full support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset. The campaign was passed just 5 days after it launched on 25th April 2014 and is one of 75 titles approved in today’s Greenlight update.
The Old City is a story-driven first-person experience in which players explore the ruins of an ancient city whilst searching for a way to the surface. Gameplay is stripped back in favour of environmental exploration and story-telling, with the title branching out into several different paths as the story progresses. It’s aiming to release in October 2014 for PC, though there isn’t any mention on Mac, Linux or possible console versions right now.
A Kickstarter campaign for the project is ongoing, hoping to raise $40,000 USD to fund development. The project is due to finish on 28th May 2014 with $4,056 raised at the time of writing. The title can be pre-ordered via the Kickstarter page with a pledge of $15. Various stretch goals are also in place to expand the story beyond its initial path.
VRFocus will continue to follow The Old City‘s progress and report back with any more developments.
