Iris VR developer Blair Renaud has teased that his upcoming virtual reality (VR) videogame TECHNOLUST could feature support for a range of input devices and even new VR headsets. The developer has revealed that he has spoken to companies such as Sixsense and YEI Technology about supporting their respective motion controllers, STEM and PrioVR, as well as Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) about a possible Project Morpheus supported version of the title on PlayStation 4.
Renaud revealed as much in an update for the title on its Kickstarter page. Speaking about his trip to the Silicon Valley Virtual Reality (SVVR) Conference & Expo in May 2014, he stated: “Aside from giving Palmer Luckey (Founder of Oculus VR and fellow Technolust backer) a high five, I spoke to everyone from STEM and PrioVR to Leap Motion and the Sony Morpheus team about supporting their hardware.”
The developer reasoned that, despite having these conversations, nothing was ‘100% confirmed yet’, although the he had previously told VRFocus that he would be interested in seeing TECHNOLUST on PlayStation 4. He also noted that he ‘will try to support everything that I can for the games release’ and remains in contact with each company, trying to secure development kits.
Elsewhere Renaud reconfirmed that TECHNOLUST‘s beta is on track for July 2014, and plans to add support for the Oculus Rift’s positional tracking when its second development kit (DK2) arrives that month. The title is a first-person adventure experience that takes place in a cyberpunk future. It’s Kickstarter campaign more than doubled its initial goal of $30,000 CAD, making $64,477 overall.
VRFocus will continue to follow TECHNOLUST‘s progress and report back with any more updates.
