A student development team going by the name of Easter has debuted a new virtual reality (VR) project this week. The team, which is made up of students from the Savannah College of Art and Design, has released an early version of Memory Leak onto the official Oculus VR Share Beta. The experience is free to download on PC and comes with full support for the Oculus Rift VR headset.
Memory Leak is described as a first-person videogame in which players have seven days to explore and solve a randomly generated murder mystery. This is done by searching a house and collection memory fragments that power the player’s senses and prevent the world around them from fading away. The title features obstacles, puzzles and enemies that will grow stronger as time progresses.
“In Memory Leak, your ability to rapidly plan, sense of exploration, and attention to detail will be your only means of survival,” the developer notes in the title’s description. Enemies are ghosts that must be avoided as the player gathers evidence. The title was created a part of a team challenge and uses Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 3. It’s not yet clear just how the title will be updated from here, or when we might see any such update.
VRFocus will continue to follow the progress of any and all applications of VR, bringing you all the latest.
