Digital distribution services had a field day with virtual reality (VR) software sales last week, with PlayStation VR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift all seeing videogame prices discounted. Developer Catbox however, is extending their generosity for a little while longer, offering both a 30% discount and a buy-one-get-one-free promotion for Lonelyland VR.
Lonelyland VR is a sandbox survival videogame designed for VR, but can also be played without a head-mounted display (HMD). The plot of the videogame sees aliens having manipulated the plant life on the earth and used them to destroy civilisation. In order to survive, the player has to build shelter and hunt for resources.
A Steam Early Access title, Lonelyland VR is currently undergoing further development. One of the key areas of further development highlighted by Catbox is locomotion, which is currently restricted. The weather, building, cooking and planting systems featured in the videogame are already offering a detailed playable state, however.
Available for the HTC Vive now, Lonelyland VR can currently be purchased via Steam at a discounted price of £7.69 GBP (typical price £10.99). Those who purchase Lonelyland VR can obtain a second copy of the videogame for free by contacting the developers: more details are available via an update to the official Steam page for the videogame.
Originally launched via Steam Early Access in November 2016, Lonelyland VR is the first VR title from Catbox. VRFocus will keep you updated with further details on the development of the project.
