Earlier in the week VRFocus reported on the launch of an updated demo for the anticipated virtual reality (VR) compatible sci-fi racing title, Radial-G. At the time the demo was made available through a direct download, with developer Tammeka Games promising that it would also arrive on the Oculus VR Share Beta at a later date. Now, just days after its initial launch, that demo has arrived on Oculus VR’s official software portal, where it can be downloaded for free.
The Radial-G single player v1.4 demo features full support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display’s (HMD) first and second development kits (DK1 and DK2), using Oculus Rift’s latest software development kit (SDK), v0.4.2. Building on the demo that accompanied Radial-G‘s Kickstarter campaign, the updated sample includes a host of new features such as Rift VR menus, a virtual on-screen keyboard to eliminate the need of removing the HMD and direct to rift support.
As for the gameplay, Radial-G is still the same high-speed racer set on tubular tracks. Players sit in the cockpits of high-tech craft and try to perfect lap times as they hit speed boosts and avoid slow-down gates. The title’s full launch, which is expected later in the year, will include a range of new modes including multiplayer support and more. The developers also hope to bring Radial-G to other HMDs in the future.
VRFocus will continue to follow Radial-G as it nears launch, reporting on all the latest updates surrounding the title.
