Last week it was revealed that first-person adventure title Rose: Time Apart would feature support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) come launch. The title, developed by indie studio Cellar Door Interactive, is currently running a Kickstarter campaign looking for $10,000 USD to fund production. Now a free demo has launched in support of that crowd-funding campaign, featuring an early look at support for the VR.
The demo is currently available through the official Oculus VR Share Beta and is compatible with both the first and second development kit versions of the Oculus Rift (DK1 and DK2). It contains a slice of Rose: Time Apart‘s first-person point and click gameplay which casts players a 12 year old Rose, who explores an abandoned house on her street with three other friends. As players progress through the title they will find out more about the site’s previous owners.
Rose: Time Apart‘s Kickstarter campaign is set to end on 9th September 2014. Those intersted can currently back $8 to secure a digital copy of the title for its planned release in May 2015. VRFocus will continue to follow the title going forward, reporting back with any further updates on its progress.
