nDreams to Release New Version of SkyDIEving
Virtual reality (VR) focused developer nDreams has confirmed to VRFocus that it is continuing to work on its VR SkyDIEving videogame that released as a demo last year. Company CEO Patrick O’Luanaigh revealed as much in an interview that will be published in full later this week, stating that the title will be ‘unrecognisable’ from when it was last seen . O’Luanaigh explained that his team had been very pleased with the reception to the demo, which supports the Oculus Rift VR headset.
“We’re continuing to do some work on SkyDIEving,” O’Luanaigh revealed to VRFocus at a recent Bossa Studios VR Meetup. “It won’t be the first VR game we do and when you see it next it will be unrecognisable compared to the demo we did. But yeah hopefully, it will see the light of day at some point.”
He stated the nDreams had seen a ‘fantastic’ reaction to SkyDIEving since it was released in 2013, with lots of coverage and fan videos.
SkyDIEving won’t be the title that the company revealed at next week’s E3 2014 in Los Angeles, California. The unrevealed title is heading to both PC and PlayStation 4 with support for the Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus headsets respectively, and saw a very small teaser trailer release two weeks ago. The developer has also been running a diary on VRFocus detailing the creation of the playable demo in the build up to E3.
VRFocus will continue to follow nDream’s progress and deliver the full interview with O’Luanaigh later in the week.
