Earlier in the year indie developer Clockwork Demon sadly failed to reach a crowd-funded goal of $140,000 USD for its upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible title, Adopted. Development on the videogame continues, however, with the studio now taking donations from fans on its official website. Clockwork Demon has been given some reason to celebrate this month, though, as it has officially passed its Steam Greenlight campaign, meaning that, when it finally does launch, the title will be available through Valve’s digital PC store.
Adopted is a first-person experience with full support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) in which players are cast as Luchador, a rescued Boston Terrier owned by three humans. Luchador will interact with his owners over the course of one particularly stressful night in their lives. Players will be able to directly influence their owners actions, at times choosing specifically who to interact with in the group. This leads to a branching story in which consequences will come into play later on.
It’s currently not clear when Clockwork Demon plans to launch Adopted following its Kickstarter failure. VRFocus will continue to follow the title closely, reporting back with any further updates on it.
