Crater Maker Passes Steam Greenlight Campaign
Indie developer Playing With Matches has passed its Steam Greenlight campaign for its virtual reality (VR) compatible title, Crater Maker. Already available through Desura, the experience will now also be sold via Valve’s digital PC store and will launch with full support for the Oculus Rift VR headset. Those that have already purchased the title on Desura can expect to receive a Steam key for downloading the experience on Valve’s platform.
Crater Maker tasks players with commandeering a supply space ship, delivering goods to customers across the universe. Players must navigate space, avoiding obstacles, managing their fuel supply and ensuring a smooth landing as they complete various jobs in the title’s Scenario Mode. A Challenge Mode will also present procedurally built levels for players to tackle, while a Retro Mode lets the title be played from a 2.5D camera perspective.
New single and multiplayer modes are also being planned for Crater Maker. The developer hopes to include both competitive and cooperative options in the future, as well as new ships, planet types and space stations. The title is compatible on PC, Mac and Linux and features support for the Xbox 360 gamepad.
It is not yet clear when Playing With Matches will release Crater Maker onto Steam Greenlight, though hopefully it won’t be long given its availability elsewhere. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all applications of VR, bringing you the very latest in the industry.
