UK-based indie developer Triangular Pixels is currently working hard on upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible videogame Smash Hit Plunder. Earlier this week the studio’s Katie Goode hosted a talk at the South West Virtual Reality Conference (SWVRC) in Bristol and later shared the presentation online. Following that, the developer has now revealed that it is planning to release a demo of Smash Hit Plunder next month.
Taking to Twitter, Triangular Pixels revealed that it hoped to release a demo of the Gear VR videogame around the end of March 2015 as the current demo being used to showcase the title’s at expos is ‘going well’. Details on a full launch are yet to be revealed, although Gear VR itself is yet to offer paid content on the Oculus VR Store. Instead demos and free experiences have seen staggered releases on the platform as the wait for a premium option continues.
Smash Hit Plunder is set within a dungeon that players must explore, destroying any objects that they come across. Broken items provide loot that players must gather. The title has been designed ‘from the ground up’ for use with Gear VR, having been announced for the HMD alongside its reveal back in September 2014. VRFocus will continue to follow Smash Hit Plunder closely, reporting back with any further updates on its progress.
