Those that are interested in virtual reality’s (VR) applications to third-person videogames may want to turn their attention to Paul Cuisset’s Subject 13. Indie videogame publisher Microïds has today announced a new stretch goal for the title’s ongoing Kickstarter campaign that promises the inclusion of Oculus Rift VR headset support for the adventure title, should it reach the necessary amount of funding.
Subject 13 is a third-person, story-driven adventure title that casts players as physics professor Franklin Fargo. Moruning the loss of his fiancée, Fargo one day awakens in an abandoned underground scientific facility. A mysterious voice continually refers to him as Subject 13 as Fargo searches for a way out of the facility, solving a variety of puzzles as he discovers the reasons behind his imprisonment.
Subject 13 still needs to reach its initial Kickstarter goal of $40,000 USD before it can focus on reaching the Oculus Rift stretch goal, set at $60,000. At the time of writing, the title has raised $12,885, with just over three weeks to go until the campaign’s completion on 8th August 2014. Should the campaign prove successful then the title hopes to release on PC, Mac, iOS and Android in October 2014. VRFocus will continue to follow the campaign’s progress moving forward, reporting back with any more updates on the proposed Oculus Rift support.
