Last month VRFocus reported on the launch of a Steam Greenlight campaign for an intriguing new virtual reality (VR) compatible videogame by the name of Home is Where One Starts. The campaign hoped to raise enough positive votes in order to launch on Valve’s digital store in full come release. Now, a few weeks on, Home is Where One Starts has passed its campaign, meaning it will launch on Steam in early summer 2015 with full support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD).
“My game has been greenlit, and it’s all thanks to you!” creator David Wehle stated in a Greenlight update. “Thanks for the votes and comments… I’m taking them to heart.”
Home is Where One Starts is intended to be a short first-person exploration title inspired by the likes of Dear Esther and Gone Home. Players explore an isolated countryside, uncovering clues in order to find home. The plot itself takes after storytellers such as John Steinbeck and Terrence Malick with music from The Tumbled Sea.
The title is set to launch with support for the Oculus Rift’s second development kit (DK2) at a planned price of just $1.99 USD. A more specific release date past the early summer window is yet to be announced. VRFocus will continue to follow Home is Where One Starts, reporting back with any further updates on the project.
