Rhythm Action Title Thumper Now Rocks Support for Oculus Touch and HTC Vive

One of the launch titles available for PlayStation VR came from indie developer Drool in the form of rhythm action experience Thumper. Support for more virtual reality (VR) platforms was confirmed at the time, and today that update has arrived. 

Drool has now rolled out compatibility for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift via SteamVR, with basic support for Oculus Touch and Vive motion controllers. Not only can Rift owners purchase Thumper through Steam, Drool also launched the title on Oculus Store. But there is a price difference, Steam lists Thumper for £15.99 GBP while Oculus Store retails the videogame for £14.99, so a slight saving for Rift owners.


In terms of continued support for Thumper, Drool states: “We’ll continue to fine tune our VR support for both headsets over the next couple weeks. We have more updates, including advanced video, control, and calibration settings on the way. Thanks for your support as we continue making Thumper the best game we can.”

If you’ve not checked out Thumper yet the videogame puts players in control of a exceedingly fast beetle that flies down a cosmic shoot bombarded with musical obstacles that can be overcome with rhythm-obeying commands.

VRFocus will continue its coverage of Thumper, reporting back with further updates.
