A couple of days ago VRFocus reported that developer Minority Media had revealed it would be releasing its virtual reality (VR) title Time Machine VR on Steam Early Access. The studio has now announced the VR title is now available.
In Time Machine VR players must travel back from through time from 2033 as part of the Monda Muzeo team to help save the human race. A plague is consuming mankind and your goal is to collect the biological data from creatures in the Jurassic era to unlock the key to saving the humanity.Pilot a time machine through vast prehistoric oceans, into an ecosystem teeming with ancient dangerous creatures, tracking, probing, scanning and baiting these beasts, to find the clues you need.
There was already a demo available, but the Early Access will feature to additional underwater levels, story mode (in development), exploration mode (in development), more creatures including pliosaurus, dakosaurus, ophthalmosaurus, a full range of tech-based mechanics: Time Freeze, Tracker, Probe, Scan, Echography, Bait, and more.
Vander Caballero, CEO and Creative Director of Minority Media said in a statement: “Making one of the first VR-native games is a challenge, and it’s very different from simply adding VR support to a conventional game. For Time Machine VR, we’ve done a ton of research and testing to make sure it offers a meaningful immersive experience. But, we need the feedback and enthusiasm of other true VR fans to help TMVR become a memorable game. I’m sure that Steam Early Access is the best way for us to achieve this.”
Time Machine VR is available for the introductory price of £7.36 GBP until the 3rd September 2015. After that it will go up to £10.99 GBP. The videogame will run on the Oculus Rift DK2 and Crescent Bay, and VRFocus will continue to report on any further developments to the title in the future.
