The stealth videogame genre has so far only seen a handful of virtual reality (VR) compatible projects. The genre has great potential for VR adaptions thanks to the positional tracking technology found in the likes of the Oculus Rift head-mounted display’s (HMD) second development kit (DK2). Indie developer TiGer36 is looking to be one of the first to captitalise on that potential with the release of a new demo for his VR videogame, Project: Stealth.
Project: Stealth is a first-person experience in which players tackle a stealth-based trial. As players progress through levels they must deactivate laser fences whule searching for a key to an escape elevator. Enemies will shoot at players when spotted, although it’s possible to lure them away from areas using an ‘attract’ option. It’s currently not clear if this release will evolve into something more or stay as a standalone experience.
The title can currently be downloaded for free over on the official Oculus VR Share Beta where it is available on PC. There’s currently no mention of possible Mac and Linux versions of the experience. Project: Stealth does however feature full support for the Oculus Rift DK2. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all applications of VR closely, bringing you all the news on the latest releases and updates.
