Indie developer Farjay Studios has revealed that it is still ‘really aiming’ for support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset in its upcoming title, Bear Simulator. The developer said as much in a recent Kickstarter update for the title in which it also stated that it would start to keep social media updates to a minimum as it began to focus on development, with progress reports being made via Kickstarter instead.
The developer posted that it was “Really aiming to add Oculus Rift support because that would be amazing.”
Support for the VR headset had originally been teased when the Kickstarter campaign launched, with the developer merely saying it was ‘possible’. This is the first update on support for the device since then, though it still doesn’t confirmed if it will actually make it into the title. Farjay Studios had originally revealed that it would need to buy an Oculus Rift developer kit first, meaning it could well be waiting for the arrival of the second kit, DK2, in July 2014.
Bear Simulator saw a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign, raising $100,571 USD to fund development of the project. It had set its initial goal at $29,500. The title is hoping to launch on PC and Mac in November 2014. VRFocus will continue to follow the title and report back with any more details.
