You may remember Porco Grande from the last time VRFocus reported on the title in late May 2014. The virtual reality (VR) compatible videogame boasts the rather unique premise of casting players as an overweight pig that must cycle to meet his girlfriend, consuming healthy foods along the way. The title is played using a connected excesise bike and an Oculus Rift VR headset. Now developer johanpruys has released a new update for the title, along with two accompanying ‘Making Of’ videos.
The two videos can be seen below and total just under 15 minutes of gameplay footage. The title, developed using Crytek’s CryEngine, features a whimsical woodland setting in which players must avoid fatty foods such as boxes of chips and burgers. The title pig’s weight will be measured as levels progress, with players gaining speed the lighter that they become. In the second video the player has become so light that they can leap off of the ground.
According to the developer, the updated version of the title features new music, characters, gameplay, sounds and voice over work. He also noted that he was excited for the arrival of the Oculus Rift’s second development kit (DK2), which is set to start shipping this month. Porco Grande is expected to make a full launch with integration for the newer headset. VRFocus will continue to follow Porco Grande‘s progress, reporting back with any more updates on the title.
