Oculus Rift support confirmed!

Hi folks and bots,

Great news! We’ve just received our Oculus Rift Dev-Kit, and have started playing around with it. It is amazing, and so far it has us convinced that the perspective, scale and immersion it offers is perfect for Among the Sleep.

As you can see in the video, we have a quick test up and running already. We can confirm that looking down at your own baby body, or up at the door handle towering high above you, is quite a special experience with the Rift.

Even though we will support a basic implementation of Oculus Rift either way, we really want to do some cool things, like exploring the upcoming positional tracking. That’s why we have also made a stretch goal at 25k, so that we can spend more time with a number of things.

We've certainly had fun playing with it until now, and we hope you like the look of it. And tomorrow we’ll be announcing more details on Stretch Goals, so stay tuned :)

Thanks for reading,
- The Krillbite Team

      Oh yeah the only thing that could make this project 100000000x better

      How about a new tier to get the game and Oculus Rift, but maybe as well have the Rift with a special paint job to theme after Among the Sleep.

      Well thank goodness you've already passed the 25 dollar stretch goal, phew. Anyway, please could you confirm that the 'basic implementation' you mention means I'll be able to hook my dev-kit up to play on release (or are you only going to support the commercial rift)?

      Now this is what im talking about!

      Thank you for adding in basic Rift support, and also additional features for the Rift as a stretch goal. Thats much better!

      Really hope this game and its stretch goal gets funded!

      +1 for the Oculus Rift Video recording, please it would be great if you could output a recording so we could take a look also even if its a short one.

      @Dennis van der Pool & Elfwyn The stretch goal is 25.000$ :) More info about stretch goals will come later today.

      @Bryan Nelson At the moment we have no distribution agreement with Oculus, making this unlikely. This is an interesting idea, however, so we'll contact them and see what we can work out! :)

      @Daniel Ervik & Barry Munro We'll try to release a video of the output, but we'll just have to find the time for it in our busy schedules first! :)

      @chel I'm afraid TrackIR will not be supported.

      Awesomeness :-) I cant wait for this game to be funded and released later. :-)
      Now I would advise all the fine people in here to raise their pledges a bit to help Krillbite reach their goal.

      Think you can put up a reward tear that includes an oculus rift? (Maybe you could get a kick starter buddy discount on the units) heck I'm going to buy a rift anyway and I want this game so ill pay extra for both

      How is this not funded already?...

    9. Elfwyn on May 6, 2013

      My guess is that the Stretch Goal is at 250.000$ and not at 25.000$. Maybe a typo?
      Additional 50K$ seem realistic to me.

    10. Daniel Ervik on May 6, 2013

      Good to hear :)
      Could you record a small video of the actual output given to the Rift so that we can kinda get the feeling of scale etc?

      Barry Munro on May 6, 2013

      Amazing, I'm doubly looking forward to this now. Is there any chance you could put up a stereoscopic video of the game running in the Rift so I can watch it on mine and get a feel for what it will be like? Even just the teaser video would be great!

    12. Toni Klausen on May 6, 2013

      @Dennis van der Pool It's a stretch goal, witch means 25K after the 100k mark. So to be presice its 125.000$

    13. Alex Dawson on May 6, 2013

      Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay :D I wasn't aware I could get more excited but apparently I can.

    14. KvaGram on May 6, 2013

      Jeg misunner dere!

      Fortsatt lykke til.

    15. Tina Bryntesen - Dream Traveller on May 6, 2013

      Edit: Also yay for how cool it looks. I was just overly excited, haha.

    16. chel on May 6, 2013

      Could you also support head tracking devices, such as TrackIR?

    17. Cornelia Morell on May 6, 2013

      Looks amazing! It definitely makes the experience of the game more realistic and scarier. And with the child's perspective you will really feel like you are in a child's body for real. Have never been this excited for a game since.. Ever! Really admire you all and your work. Good luck with everything you want to accomplish! :)

    18. Trond Solberg on May 6, 2013

      This will be so awesome!

    19. Dennis van der Pool on May 6, 2013

      25k, 225k of 250k?
