Best part yet, it's apparently motion-sickness free.
FuturLap, the developers of the excellent shmup platformer hybrid 'Velocity 2X' (and its predecessor) have announced that they are hard at work on their next game, and that it is currently in development for PlayStation VR. Few details exist for the game right now, but the studio has given some insight into their developmenr process so far:
We were approached by Sony last year to come up with a distinctly FuturLab concept for their shiny new hardware peripheral. No, it’s not a hardware peripheral, it’s a portal into a completely new medium. What an exciting time!
It’s been a very interesting learning experience – in fact we’ve learned a ton, and we’ll be talking about that a great deal around the reveal of the game (probably at the end of the year, but we reserve the right to keep schtum until it’s ready to show!).
For now, all we can say is that it’s very pretty and very cool. Most importantly, nobody has felt any kind of motion sickness whilst playing. Hooray!
I really loved 'Velocity 2X', having known absolutely nothing about it before I played it, it completely took me by surprise and ended up one of my favorite indie games. It's got a lovely sense of style, feels incredibly fast and fun, and is packed full of great content. While I still can't say I'm fully onboard with PSVR, or VR in general, between developers like this using the platform and games like '100ft Robot Golf', I might have to reconsider that at some point.
