Earlier this month saw unique simulation videogame Soda Drinker Pro finally pass its Steam Greenlight campaign, having originally been posted over a year ago. The title is now preparing for a full launch on Steam which an updated version that will include support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD). Just when this update version will be released is unknown, although the developer has confirmed to VRFocus that such a date will be confirmed either during or around next month’s PAX East.
Speaking in an interview that will be published later this week, the Soda Drinker Pro team told VRFocus that it has ‘thirst quenching’ announcements to be made at this year’s event, which takes place in Boston, Massachusetts, USA on 6th – 8th March. When asked about a possible release date the developer replied: “We are going to be making that announcement either during or after PAX East so stay tuned!” The team that added that the event is “going to be extremely thirst quenching… We’ll have a bunch more info on this at PAX East too…”
Soda Drinker Pro is a surreal first-person experience in which players explore environments whilst occasionally sipping from a virtual soda that they hold in front of themselves. The title also hides another full videogame within known as Vivian Clark. At PAX East the developers are set to appear on a panel discussing simulator videogames and will be joined by the teams behind the likes of Goat Simulator and Alien Makeout Simulator, which itself supports the Oculus Rift.
VRFocus will continue to follow Soda Drinker Pro‘s progress closely, reporting back with any further updates on it.
