Those that have been following indie developer Ana Riberio’s anticipated virtual reality (VR) compatible videogame Pixel Rift are in for a treat today. The developer has released a new version of the demo for the upcoming title to celebrate Halloween this week. The demo arrives as a special version of the regular one, both of which can currently be downloaded from the title’s official website. Both feature full support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD).
The updated demo, titled version 0.3, includes a Halloween theme complete with easter eggs for players to discover. It’s currently available on both PC and Mac. As with the original demo, it features a scene taken from the life of Nicola, a videogame enthusiast. The full title will tour different times in Nicola’s life in which she plays the latest installments in the fictional Pixel Rift series. Players will be able to try Pixel Rift themselves, while also interacting with the environment around them.
Those interested in Pixel Rift can currently find the title on display at the GameCity 2014 event in Nottingham, UK this week. The title will be playable alongside a handful of other VR compatible videogames as part of the interactive arts festival. As for a full release, the developer intends to launch Pixel Rift in 2015, though is yet to provide a more specific date. VRFocus will continue to follow Pixel Rift in the future, reporting back with any further updates.
