Another hopeful indie developer will launch a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign in support of a new virtual reality (VR) compatible videogame this week. Medusa’s Labyrinth from Guru Games is set to launch its funding push on Tuesday, 20th October. It’s not yet clear how much the developers of the first-person horror title are looking to raise, although it has been confirmed that Medusa’s Labyrinth will launch with full support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD).
According to Guru Games its upcoming title is comparable to the likes of horror titles Amnesia: The Dark Descent, only mixed with the stealth mechanics of titles such as Thief. Players will find themselves on Temple Island, exploring catacombs and amphitheaters as they solve its mysteries. The developer certainly sounds like it is developing the title with VR in mind, as Medusa’s Labyrinth won’t feature a HUD, something that is often cited as an issue for VR experiences. Instead, players will have to check stats such as arrow supplies themselves.
“The Oculus Rift is something that has not yet become a thing on the market, and Medusa’s Labyrinth is exactly the type of game that you would want to use it for,” the developer says of the title’s VR support. “The Oculus will be much more than just a camera, you will have unique features based on the technology, were you lay your eyes will affect the game.” It’s not yet confirmed which versions of the Oculus Rift will be compatible with the title, though this will likely be dependent on its release date, which is yet to be revealed itself.
Make sure to look out for Medusa’s Labyrinth‘s Kickstarter campaign tomorrow, then. VRFocus will continue to follow the title during its crowd-funding run, reporting back with all the latest updates on it.
