This week sees another full videogame pledge support to the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD). Cellar Door Interactive has confirmed that it will integrate support for the device for its upcoming PC title, Rose: Time Apart, should it pass its currently-running Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign. The title is currently looking to raise $10,000 USD by 9th September 2014 to fund development, with just over $2,000 currently raised.
Rose: Time Apart is a point and click adventure title that casts players as Rose, a young girl that explores an abandoned house on her street with three of her friends and her brother. The house once belonged to a couple, the husband of which went missing, with the wife apparently commiting suicide afterwards. Players explore the house, trying to unravel the mystery of what became of the previous occupants as they travel from room to room, investigating objects and more.
The title has in fact been in development for over two years now, and even has a playable section on Android-based console Ouya. The developer has confirmed that it will integrating support for the second development kit (DK2) version of the Oculus Rift. The title intends to launch on PC, Mac and Ouya, with other releases on Window Phone 8, Android and iOS also planned for later down the line.
Those interested in Rose: Time Apart can currently pledge $8 to secure a digital copy of the title, though once the first 99 slots of this reward tier are taken up that price will increase to $10. Backer rewards continue all the way up to $1,000 in which three fans can become one of the three friends that Rose explores the house with and play the title early. The title hopes to launch in May 2015, and is also running a Steam Greenlight campaign.
VRFocus will continue to follow Rose: Time Apart going forward, reporting back with any further updates.
