Esper Dev Talks Oculus Rift Version, Touch Possibilities and More

Cross-platform virtual reality (VR) videogames are going to be common once the Oculus Rift, Project Morpheus and HTC Vive head-mounted displays (HMDs) launch. But while porting between PCs and console is fairly new, there aren’t many studios that are looking to bring their mobile titles, created for the Gear VR HMD, over to other systems. One developer that is doing this, however, is UK-based Coatsink Software. The team is bringing its telekinetic puzzler, Esper, over to the consumer Oculus Rift next year.

VRFocus recently spoke with Coatsink Software CEO and Esper creative director Tom Beardsmore about this process. In the interview below Beardsmore talks about what will change between the 2 versions and what the team hopes to achieve with the PC release, which is preparing for launch alongside the Oculus Rift in Q1 2016. There’s also mention of possible Oculus Touch support among other things.

VRFocus will continue to follow Esper closely, reporting back with any further updates on its progress.
