Following success of Goat Simulator earlier this year the videogame industry has seen a huge increase in the amount of comedic titles that share the Simulator name. The latest of these is Rock Simulator 2014 from developer Ryan Schultz. This is another slapstick videogame, based around simply being able to interact with a perfectly ordinary rock, and it’s set to arrive with full support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset.
The title recently launched a Steam Greenlight campaign and has already passed an IndieGoGo campaign looking for $500 USD. The title is described as ‘the rock enthusiast’s dream’, allowing players to simply watch rocks resting in a range of different environments, from grass plains to salt flats.
Thanks to the successful crowd funding campaign, Rock Simulator 2014 will be releasing for free. A specific date for the title is yet to be announced, as is confirmation of possible Mac or Linux versions. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all applications of VR and report back with any more updates.
