It’s been an interesting if frustrating few months to follow HyperSloth Games’ upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible adventure videogame, Dream. While development on the title itself seems to be progressing steadily, support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) has hit something of a speedbump in that the title’s engine, the Unreal Development Kit, is yet to be updated to feature support for the device’s second development kit (DK2), stopping the team from adding the latest support. This week brings more positive news, however, as Dream has been confirmed to be coming to EGX London.
The title will be playable at the Rezzed Area of the event, which runs from 25th – 28th September 2014 at Earls Court in London. It’s not yet clear if the developer will be bringing an Oculus Rift compatible build of the title to the show. The Rezzed Area of EGX is dedicated to indie titles and shares the same name as the Rezzed event in Birmingham which took place earlier in the year, with Dream also featuring at that show.
Dream is a first-person experience in which players are cast as Howard Phillips who suffers from dread and despair when awake but has peaceful dreams. Players explore Phillips’ dreams unravelling their significance to his future. The title is currently available in an Early Access form with the first two of its three acts already released, with the final one expected to launch soon. VRFocus will continue to follow the title going forward, reporting back with any further updates.
