Radial-G to Support Trinity Magnum

Indie developer Tammeka Games has said in the past that it will look into different control methods for its upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible sci-fi racing title, Radial-G. The project, which is currently in the last week of its Kickstarter campaign, will support the Xbox controller for its PC release, but until now the team hasn’t confirmed any additional support. Today it was announced that, should it receive funding, Radial-G will in fact be integrating another Kickstarter campaign, the Trinity Magnum from Trinity VR.

The Trinity Magnum launched its own crowd-funding campaign at the beginning of last week. It is a gun-shaped controller that features accurate motion tracking, allowing players to move an in-game object and their camera indepedently. Tammeka Games didn’t comment on just how support for the controller might work, though perhaps it might be possible for the device to act as a steering wheel as players turn it.

Both Kickstarter campaigns are yet to reach their funding goals. Radial-G hopes to raise £50,000 GBP by 2nd August 2014, while the Trinity Magnum is looking to make $60,000 USD by 20th August. Should Tammeka Games reach its goal then Radial-G will launching with support for the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD), which the Trinity Magnum is designed to be used with. VRFocus will continue to follow the progress of both devices, reporting back with any further updates on their development.
