Videogames have received mixed successes on crowd funding sites like Kickstarter and IndieGoGo, especially where virtual reality (VR) titles are involved. Indie developer RealityArts is in the last few days of its Kickstarter campaign for Voidrunner, and previously confirmed that the title would support the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). Now the studio has revealed that support is soon to land.
While RealityArts is still some way off its $47,000 USD funding goal, the developer updated its Kickstarter page to inform backers that it has secured interest from some investors and publishers, meaning that whatever the outcome on Kickstarter the project would still be going ahead. Due to this RealityArts have recently tweeted that the confirmed Oculus Rift VR support would be coming soon and included a screenshot (below) of the VR version.
Voidrunner places an emphasis on speed and reflexes. Players must reach the exit portal before time runs out, whilst defeating enemies and navigating the hostile environment. The title features 6 game modes for both single and multiplayer action, over 50 maps, and more than 15 vehicles with various power-ups and weapons to choose from.
Also mentioned on Voidrunner’s Steam page is support for the HTC Vive HMD. RealityArts have not said when a version for the HTC Vive may arrive, but the HMD is due to launch first. VRFocus will be keeping a close eye on any further updates and announcements regarding Voidrunner and shall report back.
