App & Scenarios update
Many asked about it, it's finally here! Stretch Goal #23 is officially available in the app: you can now "send" the crime scene to another device!
The goal was to be able to view the crime scene on a different device than the one used to scan, especially for people who have a large VR headset they can use: no need to constantly remove and put back the phone!
Right now, we support 2 modes:
- without VR (viewing the crime scene on a tablet)
- any Google Cardboard supported VR
Oculus, Samsung Gear VR and Google Daydream require a separate app on different Stores. While we are interested in supporting these and will investigate it (requirements, technical challenges, etc), we have now shifted our main focus to the Community Editor!
This is how it looks like in the app now:
We really wanted to deliver at least one additional scenario for Christmas, unfortunately it's not possible. We are very sorry for this delay, but we prefer to take the time required to have very strong and meaningful stories, rather than meet a deadline no matter what and release a poor version of a scenario, with bugs and incoherence in it. Each scenario requires a LOT of testing to find all the small issues ("hey, nothing happens if I show item A to character X!"), and that takes time. The authors are still hard at work, although they will, as everyone else, take the time to enjoy the holidays.
Our goal is to release 2 of the KS scenarios as well as all the scenarios of Noir and Welcome to Redview (4 each) by the end of January.
