The Oculus VR Share software portal is filled with all sorts of virtual reality (VR) compatible experiences, services and demos, although arguably the best offerings are the short but sweet videogames designed as bite-sized introductions to the world of VR. That’s exactly what Spacewalk developer Otherworld Interactive’s Café Âme is. Launched on Oculus VR Share this week, the title is currently free to download on PC and comes with full support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD).
Café Âme is described by its developers as a ‘short-form’ story in which players are cast as a character that will ‘discover who they are’. It appears to be a first-person experience. No other information about the title is shared, though a look at screenshots of the title suggests that it’s a little more than a simple character drama, perhaps also encroaching on other genres such as sci-fi. These mysteries are for the player to discover.
The title is compatible with the Oculus Rift’s second development kit (DK2). Keyboard and mouse input is the only compatible control scheme and there’s yet to be any mention of possible Mac or Linux versions. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all applications of VR, reporting back with any further updates.
