Virtual reality (VR) experiences have the means in invoke far more emotional connections in players than other entertainment mediums, mainly due to their ability to put users inside the content. Luden.io (previously Nival VR), the developer behind VR titles InMind VR and InCell VR, announced a follow up to the former – InMind2 – back in August, and now its launched on iOS and Android platforms with support for head-mounted displays (HMDs) such as Google Cardboard.
A life long adventure videogame which follows the story of a boy named John. Inspired by Disney/Pixar movie Inside Out, InMind 2 explores the chemistry governing human emotions, as players guide John through his life making decisions that will steer him to achieve certain goals and not others. These will come as key moments that’ll effect the path of the story, unlocking new interests and relations to help John grow and learn into and through adulthood. As in life John’s future isn’t fixed and players can choose to let him grow up to be an astronaut, a famous actor, an athlete, or any of the other possibilities available.
Luden.io launched a beta last month for InMind 2 so some of you may have already started John on his journey, but now the fully finished version is available to download for free on mobile devices. The studio will also bring the title to Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Daydream View by the end of the year.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Luden.io, reporting back with any further VR updates.
