Undoubtedly one of the more interesting virtual reality (VR) compatible Kickstarter projects right now, Kôna is bringing fresh landscapes and ideas to adventure videogames. The Northern Quebec-set title is currently hoping to reach a $40,000 CAD goal to release the first of four episodes on PC, Mac and Linux with support for the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD). According to developer Parabole, a PlayStation 4 version with support for Project Morpheus is also possible.
The team’s Alexandre Fiset confirmed as much to VRFocus in an interview that will be published in full later on in the week. When asked if the team was planning to bring Kôna to other platforms, including PlayStation 4 and Project Morpheus, Fiest replied: “Yes, but we cannot confirm we’ll support it until we talk in detail about our project with a Sony representative.”
Kôna is a first-person adventure title in which players are casts as private investigator Carl Faubert, hired to investigate vandalism and theft to a rich industrialist’s summer house. Arriving on the scene, Faubert finds the area completely deserted and begins to investigate the disappearance of the local population. Players will uncover clues, solve puzzles and engage in action throughout the adventure.
Should Kôna‘s Kickstarter campaign go to plan then the title hopes to launch the first of four episodes on PC, Mac and Linux in April 2015. VRFocus will continue to follow Kôna‘s progress going forward and will deliver to full interview with Fiset later on in the week.
