Kickstarter Horror Title Gray Dawn Planning VR Support

Launched on the crowd funding site Kickstarter earlier this month by indie developer Interactive Stone was the first person horror title Gray Dawn. Originally Interactive Stone had virtual reality (VR) compatibility alongside console versions of the videogame as the first stretch goal, but now the developer has updated its funding page to announce that VR support will be part of the main goal.

The update notified backers that the studio had added a new reward, added a new 3D artist to the company’s staff, as well as implementing Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the videogame and VR into the main goal. Interactive Stone haven’t detailed further what VR head-mounted displays (HMDs) maybe supported, but if a PlayStation 4 version is to be made then the possibility of Gray Dawn coming to PlayStation VR could be likely.

Gray Dawn is set in 1910 on Christmas Eve, and players are cast as a Swedish priest who is suspected of murdering one of his altar boys who vanished a few days previously. The main goal is to find the boy to prove your innocence, all the while dealing with bizarre events ranging from demonic possession to divine apparitions.

Created on the Unreal Engine 4, players will have to solve puzzles in both real and unreal worlds inspired by classic horror videogames like the original Silent Hill titles, Alone in the Dark and Resident Evil.

Interactive Stone is looking to raise €50,000 EUR to fund the project, which is also on Steam Greenlight, and VRFocus will be monitoring its progress as the campaign continues.
