Famed developer Jeff Minter and the team at Llamasoft have already made one exciting announcement this week in that the 2011 iOS title, Minotaur Rescue, will be coming to the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD), Project Morpheus PlayStation 4 VR HMD and Samsung’s newly-announced Gear VR HMD for the Galaxy Note 4 Smartphone. But the developer isn’t stopping there; Minter has also confirmed that Llamasoft will be bringing is celebrated tube shooter TxK to both Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus in the future.
Minter confirmed as much on his Twitter account, stating: “And other projects – such as PC and PS4 ports of TxK – will offer VR modes.”
Originally released earlier in 2014 for PlayStation Vita, TxK is a tube shooter with over 100 levels in which players control a tank that travels back and forth along a set path. Players must blast enemies that come towards them, building up scores. The title is designed as a spiritual successor to the tube shooters of the 1990’s, featuring a unique soundtrack and impressive particle effects.
Minter didn’t reveal any more specifics about these new releases of TxK, meaning we don’t yet know when they will launch and how much they might cost. It’s also not clear if the title will be adapted in any significant way to accommodate VR HMDs. Support for Gear VR is also yet to be confirmed. VRFocus will continue to follow TxK going forward, reporting back with any further updates on the title’s development.
