Announcement: Strike Suit Zero & The Oculus Rift
Some of you picked up on the fact that we’ve backed Oculus on Kickstarter, and have asked: will the game support the technology?
Well, we can finally tell you that yes, we are going to make an Oculus Rift compatible version of Strike Suit Zero!
Imagine taking to a fully 3D cockpit, navigating space and looking about your environment as if you were actually there. The Oculus Rift will allow you to look all around you, letting you keep track of the enemy in a way that doesn't just rely on a radar. This will really change up the core dogfighting experience.
For those unaware, the Oculus Rift is a “virtual reality (VR) headset designed specifically for video games that will change the way you think about gaming forever. With an incredibly wide field of view, high resolution display, and ultra-low latency head tracking, the Rift provides a truly immersive experience that allows you to step inside your favorite game and explore new worlds like never before.” Oculus was also made possible thanks to Kickstarter.
How does this affect our Kickstarter campaign? If you’re a developer who happens to be both a Strike Suit Zero and an Oculus backer, and you have a dev kit on the way, you can add just $1 to your pledge to get access to an Oculus-specific beta that will launch early next year. To reiterate: this beta is just for the Oculus version of the game – and you’d have to have pledged for a copy of the game ($15 and above) already, too. Obviously we’ll need players to try the game, let us know what works, what doesn’t, and ensure we have the best VR experience possible. In turn, we can share what we’ve learnt about the development process, too.
As the consumer version of the Oculus Rift isn’t available yet, this is for those people who are picking up an Oculus dev kit, and want to help us work on and balance the Oculus version of the game. We get invaluable testers and you get to witness the optimization process from the inside. And who knows what you will be able to do using the game's Mod tools (which is a stretch goal we really want to see reached!)?
Having tried the Rift at PAX - and seen firsthand how incredible the headset is - this is tech we're really excited to see Strike Suit Zero working on. Look out for more on this down the line.
