Pollen Announced for Desktops as well as Virtual Reality
Indie developer Mindfield Games has announced today that its upcoming virtual reality (VR) title Pollen which was first confirmed for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) will also be available as a standard mouse and keyboard videogame for PC, Mac and Linux systems.
Pollen is a first-person space exploration game set on Titan, the sixth and largest moon of Saturn and the only moon in the solar system with an atmosphere and vast liquid seas, where life may exist. In the videogame the player is sent as a replacement for the space company Rama Industries mechanic who was lost on this moon in a work related accident. Once there he is to join the four remaining personnel of the research station M to continue their work with the unknown object they have discovered below the Titanian crust. Inside the research station each step forward leads to new discoveries about the fate of the crew and the secrets that they have uncovered.
Olli Sinerma, Co-founder of Mindfield Games said about the title: “Virtual reality is about freedom to do whatever you like and everything in the gameworld has been made interactive for the player to experiment with. All the objects can be examined or operated – just like in real-life and it’s the player actions which define how they uncover what has happened in Research Station M”.
Alongside the PC, Mac and Linux system versions, Pollen will support HTC Vive, OSVR and Oculus Rift when it launches in Q1 2016, with Project Morpheus support arriving when the HMD does in the first half of 2016.
VRFocus will continue to follow the latest announcements from Mindfield Games regarding Pollen.
