ADR1FT Aiming for 4-Hour, $20 – $30 Experience
In December 2014 indie developer Three One Zero revealed the first footage for its anticipated virtual reality (VR) compatible first-person experience, ADR1FT. A brief look at footage from the title stunned with its impressive visual direction, but left plenty of questions about the videogame itself. Recently the developer has addressed some of those questions, revealing that it intends for ADR1FT to be a four hour long experience that aims to sit in a $20 USD – $30 price range upon launch later this year.
Adam Orth, creative director on ADR1FT, confirmed as much in the latest issue of Game Informer, as reported by Videogamer. “I think there’s a real gap in the marketplace where this game can fit in,” Orth said. “It’s a four-hour experience, it’s going to be in the $20-30 price range, and it can be completed in one sitting. It’s going to have kick-ass quality production value.”
“We really want to amplify the horror of the reality of the situation,” the developer concluded. “It’s not a horror game, but we want to make sure it feels like that.”
ADR1FT casts players as an astronaut that finds themselves stranded in the middle of a spaceship wreck. With no memory of the accident, the astronaut must tour the wreckage, finding repair bays to fix her suit before she runs out of oxygen. As the title progresses players will uncover exactly what happened to the ship. ADR1FT is set to arrive on PC with full support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the videogame are also in the works, although there’s no word on if support for the Project Morpheus HMD might be possible on the former.
Three One Zero hopes to launch ADR1FT in summer 2015. VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s progress, reporting back with any further updates on it.
