Apelab’s Break a Leg Swinging onto Google & Vive’s All-in-One VR Headset
Do we have our first launch title for the as-yet-unseen mobile VR platform?
Apelab’s debut virtual reality (VR) videogame, Break A Leg, launched for Samsung Gear VR only last month. However, the studio is now looking to bring the title to more formats, including offering a launch title for the upcoming all-in-one mobile head-mounted display (HMD) from Google and Vive.
Created by the four-person team of Emilie Joly, Michaël Martin, Maria Beltran and Sylvain Joly, who together form Apelab, Break A Leg is an interactive adventure which challenges the player to perform magic tricks in front of a demanding audience. Following the Samsung Gear VR edition of the videogame, the apelab team is developing an ‘arcade style’ version for standalone VR platforms and PC hardware and have announced plans to be a launch title on the new Vive and Google HMDs debuting on holiday period.
In order to achieve their goals, the team turned to Kaleidoscope to help with funding. $300,000 USD is the requested sum, with more information available to those registered on the Kaleidoscope platform here.
The first chapter of Break A Leg is available to download for Samsung Gear VR via the Oculus Store now completely free of charge. VRFocus will keep you updated with Apelab’s future plans for the videogame and further titles announced for the upcoming Google and Vive all-in-one HMD.
