Last month UK-based indie developer released an unboxing video of the studios new toy, the HTC Vive virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD). The team confirmed its VR compatible title Salvaged, which had only been shown to support the Oculus Rift HMD, would now be supporting HTC’s headset. Naturally Opposable Games need some time to get acquainted with the new HMD, and have been showing off some artist skills via Tilt Brush.
In the video below Opposable Games’ lead 2D artist Alix Briskham has been recording her skills on the software by creating a 3D dragon.
Tilt Brush has been a popular title to demonstrate the capabilities of some of the HTC Vive’s main features, including the duel wireless controllers and the Room Scale user tracking, which allows players to walk around an area of up to 15 feet by 15 feet and have those movements replicated in-game.
Salvaged casts players as a deep space salvage commander, that orders a team of agents through alien-infested space ship wrecks as they hunt for salvage. In VR, this is done by placing players in a command room with three screens. One allows the commander to manage contracts and a tablet is used for issuing commands. The third screen shows the action unfold in full 3D environments in real time.
VRFocus will continue to follow the progress of Salvaged, reporting back with any further updates.
