Those that have been following Opposable Games and its virtual reality (VR) compatible strategy videogame, Salvaged, will know that the developer is currently hard at work on reimagining its title. The changes are coming in response to a failed Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign in 2014. Now Opposable Games has also confirmed that Salvaged will be seeing a Steam Greenlight campaign in the coming weeks, hoping to raise enough votes to have the title approved for sale on Valve’s digital store.
The developer announced that Salvaged will be coming to Steam Greenlight in its most recent newsletter. No official date for the campaign was given, though the team did note that it will arrive in the ‘coming weeks’. Not only that, but a new demo for Salvaged is being prepared for the campaign’s launch. “Watch this space as we’re planning on going to Greenlight very soon and we’d really appreciate your support,” the developer wrote in the update. “Every vote counts so please watch out for our next update and make sure to follow the links to our page once it’s published.”
The new version of Salvaged will reposition the title with a greater focus on strategy. The videogames casts players as the commander of a squad of troops that they must order on one screen, watching their progress on another. In VR, using the Oculus Rift, this is done within a virtual room, though the title can also be played without VR, utilising a tablet as a second screen. The revamped version of the title will also be placing a greater emphasis on story.
Opposable Games will likely have much more to share on Salvaged as its heads towards its Greenlight launch. VRFocus will continue to follow the title closely, reporting back with the latest updates on it.
