Indie developer Untold Games has announced that its upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible title Loading Human will feature support for Virtuix’s multi-directional motion platform, Omni. Players will be able to strap on the Oculus Rift VR headset, step onto the device and control protagonist Prometheus by simply walking. It marks the third method of input for the title, having previously announced support for Sixense’s STEM motion controller and YEI Technologies’ PrioVR full body motion suit.
The developer announced the news in an update for its successful Kickstarter project. “We are very proud to announce the full support for the Virtuix Omni!” the update read. “Now, with the Sixense Stem, the PrioVR and the Omni, we can say that Loading Human will offer a truly scalable VR experience.”
Loading Human is a first-person experience in which players explore the memory fragments of Prometheus, who is on a journey to find an immense energy source named the Quintessence. The experience passed its Kickstarter campaign late last week, and is now hoping to raise enough money to unlock some of its stretch goals, such as $65,000 USD for Spanish, Russian, German and French voice acting or $100,000 to expand the number of solutions for puzzles.
The campaign is due to close on 5th June 2014. The title itself is due to release the first of 3 episodes on PC, Mac and SteamOS in February 2015. A PlayStation 4 version of the title with support for the Project Morpheus VR headset is also possible. VRFocus will continue to follow Loading Human‘s progress and report back with any more updates.
