Indie developer Current Circus has again updated the alpha version of its upcoming underwater experience, Muse. The new version, titled Alpha Muse 04a, follows last month’s addition of Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset support and adds improvements to that feature as well as a host of other features and fixes. It is available now on PC for players that have purchased a $10 USD account to play the title and offer feedback for the development team as they go.
In terms of Oculus Rift support, the team has added reticles to the screen when using the headset, allowing for improved navigation in the title’s underwater environment. The pause screen has also been adjusted so that it can be used with the device. Elsewhere the title has made improvements to its song creation, adding buttons to change the pitch of a song as well as the ability to isolate a single track and listen to it or clear it. The underwater creatures that players encounter will also now be able to keep up with the camera.
The update brings several fixes to the title’s performance as well. The overall RAM usage has been cut down and the developers have eliminated an issue with switching the active display. It was also promised that many more audio control features would be added in the future. VRFocus will continue to follow Muse’s progress and report back with all the latest updates.
