VR Support Teased for The Old City

Indie developer PostMod Softworks has teased possible virtual reality (VR) support for its upcoming story-driven experience, The Old City. The developer suggested that support for the Oculus Rift VR headset might be revealed ‘over the next 2 weeks’ on PC title’s Steam Greenlight campaign. Said campaign launched on 25th April 2014, hoping to secure enough positive votes to be sold on Valve’s digital store come full release.

“Funny you should mention that…” the developer wrote on Twitter when asked by VRFocus if Oculus Rift support might be included in the upcoming title. “Keep checking back over the next 2 weeks.”

The Old City is described as a first-person adventure game that places focus on story. It’s set in a decaying urban environment, with players cast as a ‘sewer dwelling isolationist’. As the title progresses players learn more about the story through the environment and thoughts of the protagonist. The first section of the experience is said to be linear with semi-open areas, moving into a multi-pathway structure later on.

The Old City is hoping to launch in Spring 2015. VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s progress and report back as soon as word of VR support hits.
