Indie developer Brett Jackson and his virtual reality (VR) title Dimensional has met with early success over the last few months. In November 2015 his videogame won the VRTGO Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) conference and expo competition, and last month successfully hit his Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign goal to raise £1000 GBP towards the project. Now the developer has launched a Steam Greenlight campaign.
“The Greenlight campaign got off to a great start thanks to my Kickstarter backers and Reddit users.” said Jackson in a statement, “Getting Dimensional on Steam will be an important milestone for the game and will help me fund further improvements and expansions to the game after the first release.”
Dimensional is a first-person puzzle platformer putting players in the role of a rookie soldier tasked with saving an alien race from extinction. Navigating dangerous secret chambers, players must save the alien offspring from hunters looking to wipe them out.
The title is being designed to support both the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive head-mounted displays (HMDs). Currently there’s a four level demo available on the Dimensional website for owners of the Oculus Rift DK2 headset. Jackson plans to release the videogame with 10 levels in total, although that could increase to 15 if the Kickstarter campaign hits £2,500 GBP. There’s still six days to go and the funding raised has hit £1,353 GBP (at the time of writing).
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Dimensional, reporting back with any further updates from Kickstarter or Steam Greenlight.
