Following the unfortunate failure of Radial-G‘s Kickstarter campaign last month, Tammeka Games has confirmed some much more positive news this week. The developer has announced that its virtual reality (VR) compatible sci-fi racing title has passed its Steam Greenlight campaign and is approved for sale on Valve’s digital store when it releases in full. A concrete release date for the title is yet to be revealed.
“We have been selected in the September round and will have more news to share soon, along with the official Steam game profile page to share very soon!” the developer wrote in a Greenlight update. “Thank you everyone who voted YES for us and had the faith in us to deliver, we very much will do!” Speaking to VRFocus, the developer’s Sam Watts suggested that Radial-G could perhaps see an Early Access release on Steam. The official Steam page for the title will be completed within ‘the next couple of days’.
Radial-G is a racing title in which players drive along a pipe with a full 360 degrees of control. The title will launch on PC, Mac and Linux with full support for the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD), with a PlayStation 4 version with Project Morpheus support also planned. A mobile version is also in the works, though support for Samsung’s newly-announced Gear VR smartphoned-based HMD is yet to be confirmed.
VRFocus will continue to follow Radial-G going forward, reporting back with any further updates on the title’s development.
