Canadian developer Minority has today revealed that not only will they be attending this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Los Angeles, next month, but in addition they will be offering hands-on demos with their virtual reality (VR) project, Time Machine, utilising Oculus VR’s latest head-mounted display (HMD) protoype: Crescent Bay.
Minority’s Time Machine made it’s media debut at the Game Developers Conference (GDC), San Francisco, back in March. VRFocus met with Vander Caballero, CEO and Creative Director at Minority, at the time and got hands-on with an early build of the videogame. This version was playable on the second iteration of the Oculus Rift development kit, aka DK2. Since then, it appears that significant progress has been made.
In a post on Minority’s official website the team revealed that they would be offering a 40-minute demo of the videogame playable on the Oculus Rift Crescent Bay: “We’ll be one of only a handful of developers to demo on Oculus VR’s Crescent Bay.”
Offering a direct quote from the team, Julien Barnoin, Minority CTO and Lead Programmer, writes: “It’s very exciting to be at the forefront of the revolution. I can’t wait to show the world the kind of adventures they’ll be able to experience when they get their own VR device.”
Prior to this revelation VRFocus had already secured a meeting with Minority at E3 next month. You can be sure that the team will report back with a hands-on preview of Time Machine on Crescent Bay as soon as it’s available.
