With some many virtual reality (VR) videogames announced for Samsung’s Gear VR head-mounted display (HMD) this week it can be easy to forget that titles are also being announced for the Oculus Rift VR HMD on PC. One such title is Dreamflight, a flight simulation experience from indie developer Refugio 3D. This week has seen the developer launch a Steam Greenlight campaign for the experience, hoping to have it approved for sale on Valve’s PC store come full launch.
Though there is currently little information on Dreamflight, the developer does note that the experience is designed to give players “an incredible sense of freedom” and has even been tested by real pilots. It appears to be a first-person experience in which players pilot an aircraft around a range of fantastical environments, relaxing as they take in sights such as floating islands and ancient ships. Exotic wildlife can be found scattered around maps and players can even land on the water below them.
According to the developer Dreamflight is already compatible with both the first and second development kit (DK1 and Dk2) versions of the Oculus Rift. Right now the experience is scheduled for release in 2014, although a more specific launch date is yet to be revealed. VRFocus will continue to follow Dreamflight going forwards, reporting back with any further updates on the title’s development.
