Indie developer Dylan Browne is set to give a public showcase of his upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible sci-fi horror title, Caffeine, next month. The videogame will be on display at AVCON on 18th – 20th July 2014 in Adelaide Australia. To celebrate the announcement Browne has released a brand new trailer of the upcoming experience, which will feature full support for the Oculus Rift VR headset.
The trailer, as seen below, offers around a minute and a half of in-game footage from Caffeine. This is an atmospheric piece that explores one of the many rooms in the title’s abandoned caffeine mining facility setting, though Browne does fit something of a surprise in towards the end of the footage. It also gives us a good glimpse at some of the enhancements made to the title in its conversion to Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4.
Caffeine is currently running a Kickstarter campaign hoping to raise $70,000 AUD to fund development of the title. That said, the campaign has only managed to raise $3,074 with just three days left before its closure. Browne had announced his intentions to bring the title to the PlayStation 4 with support for the Project Morpheus VR headset should the project secure funding. It’s not clear how the developer will proceed should this campaign fail.
VRFocus will continue to follow Caffeine‘s progress, bringing you all the latest updates.
