Indie developer Flying Mollusk is currently trying to raise funds for its ongoing Kickstarter campaign for Nevermind, an upcoming horror videogame that reads player’s biometrics using sensors and adapts gameplay based on their heart rate. The campaign hopes to raise $75,000 USD in order to integrate support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) among other platforms and peripherals. Now the title has received some new concept art, which can be seen below.
The art, labelled ‘First Crossing’, depicts a bridge that covers a wide area. The platform is held in place with wires that appear to be held by giant hands. It’s environments such as this in which players will have to try and remain calm, which the experience becoming more challenging when the user’s heart rate is faster. As the developer’s Erin Reynolds revealed to VRFocus in an interview earlier this week, the title’s environments will dynamically respond to the user’s fear and stress.
Should Nevermind pass its Kickstarter campaign by 3rd November 2014 then it will also come to the Xbox One using the Kinect sensor. The title already features support for Intel’s RealSense camera, but hopes to add support for even more peripherals. Should all go to plan then an Early Access version of the title will release in January 2015. VRFocus will continue to follow Nevermind in the future, reporting back with any further updates on its progress.
