It’s a busy time for crowd-funding campaigns and virtual reality (VR) videogames at the moment. Dance title Holodance is looking to raise money on IndieGoGo, while space combat experience Everspace is also in search of funds over on Kickstarter. Another VR flight title to recently hit the latter service is Voidrunner, a new experience from the team at RealityArts that passed a Steam Greenlight campaign earlier in the year. The Oculus Rift-supported videogame is now looking for some £47,000 GBP from fans.
Developed using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4, Voidrunner places an emphasis on speed and reflexes. Set within a surreal void that the protagonist is drawn into, players must navigate complex environments while defeating enemies. A story mode with 21 levels will feature, though the full title has around 40 maps in total. Other modes include Free Flight, Ghost Race, a harder Acrobatic Reflex mode, Hardcore Mode, Escape Mode and a Stand and Fight Mode. Mutliplayer is included as one of the campaign’s stretch goals at £150,000 and offers a number of game types.
Should the campaign go to plan then Voidrunner is aiming to launch in the second quarter of 2016 on PC, Mac and Linux. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions are also planned for the end of next year. The campaign page itself notes that the title will support ‘virtual reality systems’. Oculus Rift support has already been confirmed, but this suggests the title could also possible arrive on both the HTC Vive on PC and Project Morpheus on the PlayStation 4, though this is yet to be confirmed by the developer.
Those interested in Voidrunner can pledge £10 to secure a digital copy of Voidrunner, with various other rewards. VRFocus will continue to follow the title closely, reporting back with any further updates on it.
