With last week’s news that Sony Computer Entertainment’s (SCE’s) upcoming virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) had been renamed from Project Morpheus to PlayStation VR, a number of developers have shared new information about the titles they’re creating for the kit. This weekend alone VR fans learned a little more about Futuridium VR and Dead or Alive Xtreme 3. Now it’s also been revealed that indie developer Truant Pixel is working on its own VR title for the PlayStation 4-based device.
Founder Maher Al-Samkari and his wife Souha Al-Samkari recently confirmed as much in an interview with PlayStation LifeStyle. “We are actually an independent developer, currently working on a game for PlayStation VR (formerly Morpheus),” the developer stated when asked about its background. “Prior to that, we were making themes for the PS3 and PS Vita that were both distributed independently online and in an official capacity from companies such as SEGA, Konami, and Naughty Dog.”
No other information was provided, and Truant Pixel is yet to detail this title on its official website. The developer is however known for its work creating custom themes for both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 as well as Xbox 360, PC and mobile platforms. The company’s past work has seen it partner with the likes of Naughty Dog to create themes for the popular Uncharted franchise as well as working with other major publishers such as SEGA and Konami. The studio has previously worked on a top-down shooter named Last Alarm.
PlayStation VR itself is set to launch in the first half of 2016. The kit boasts a 1080p OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate that’s capable of ‘reprojecting’ experiences at 120fps. A specific launch date and price for the title are yet to be revealed.
VRFocus will continue to follow Truant Pixel’s work in VR, reporting back with the latest updates from the company.
