Indie developer Lucid VR is currently running a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign to aid its upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible videogame, ZVR Apocalypse. The team is hoping to secure $30,000 AUD to help fund development of the title, which features full support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). This week sees the developer set up another campaign for the experience with the launch of a Steam Greenlight page, hoping to secure positive votes from the community to be approved for sale on Valve’s digital PC store.
ZVR Apocalypse is a mix of both first and third-person shooters in which players combat zombie hordes both with turret-based and cover-based gameplay. Zombies themselves aren’t the standard slow-moving shufflers but will instead fight back, moving at a fast pace and even using weapons such as guns. The title currently has two demos available for people to try out, one which showcases the enemies and another which is fully playable.
At the time of writing ZVR Apocalypse has just under a week left to secure its Kickstarter funding, with the campaign closing on 28th September 2014. It has currently raised just over a third of that funding at $11,251. Will the title be able to secure its base goal in the closing days? VRFocus will continue to follow the videogame’s progress going forward, reporting back with any further updates on its development.
