This week sees the launch of a new Steam Greenlight campaign for an unusual first-person shooter (FPS) videogame by the name of Grass Simulator 2014. Created by indie developer Rezine Games, it follows in the vein of other Simulator titles, with a comedic presentation in which players simply explore a map populated with cows, trees and, as the name suggests, lots and lots of grass. Should all go to plan, then the developer hopes to implement virtual reality (VR) support into the title.
“Want to see grass in Virtual Reality? – Vote up this game now!” an update for the title’s Greenlight campaign reads.
“The development team have been working really hard on this game, and we can’t wait to show you more!”
The update doesn’t specifically detail which VR headset Grass Simulator 2014 might use, although given its popularity it’s highly likely to be the Oculus Rift VR headset. A trailer for the title can be seen below. As it shows, the experience does include guns, from pistols to machine guns, though it isn’t clear what purpose they serve within the videogame. While the title is currently populated with cows, the developer hopes to add more kinds of wildlife in the future.
Rezine Games also plans to add in more traditional gameplay elements to Grass Simulator 2014, including crafting and a multiplayer mode. Also planned are graphical improvements, dynamic weather and a wider range of weapons than what can be seen now. VRFocus will continue to follow Grass Simulator 2014, bringing you all the latest on its progress.
