Another virtual reality (VR) videogame has sadly failed to pass its Kickstarter campaign this week. The Corridor: On Behalf of the Dead from Desktop Daydreams Studios has ended its campaign with just £6,802 GBP of its £37,500 goal raised. The title, which supports the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD) on PC, began its campaign on 2nd August 2014, giving it around a month to try and reach the target. Despite the setback, the developer is ‘passionate’ about pushing on with the title.
“Sadly that’s it. We tried our best but unfortunately we didn’t get there,” the team wrote in a Kickstarter update.
“We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support, its really meant the world to us to hear such amazing things about the game.
“So, where do we go from here? Well the team is still passionate about developing the game and we’ve have had some early thoughts about the possibility of another crowd funding project, setting up donations or a pre-order option.”
The update went on to explain that the team is still going strong with its Steam Greenlight campaign, and will be taking some time to gather ideas before pushing ahead with new funding options.
The Corridor: On Behalf of the Dead is a first-person horror experience developed using the Unity Engine. The title casts players as an agent that enters the mind of suspected murderers in order to gather evidence on crimes using their memories. The title had hoped to launch on Mac, PC and Linux in January 2014, though it’s now unclear as to it this target date is still possible.
VRFocus will continue to follow The Corridor: On Behalf of the Dead, reporting back with any further updates on the title’s progress.
