The Gallery: Six Elements Kickstarter, the first-person action game developed specially for the Oculus Rift, the virtual reality headset, surpassed its $65,000 goal with 53 hours of the campaign left to go.
The game will have Razer Hydra (Sixense Entertainment's motion controller) support, since it hit its first stretch goal of $70,000. The second stretch goal, which will see the inclusion of a female avatar and animation, has been lowered from $90,000 to $80,000. The fundraising campaign currently sits at a total of $71,299 in pledges from 1,276 backers.
The Myst-inspired game requires players to discover The Gallery's meaning and escape it by finding six keys hidden in different worlds. Each world has its own themes based on the six elements of life: Air, Fire, Water, Earth, Love and Death.
Gameplay features puzzles, physical challenges, randomized environments and path-finding. It also combines "first-person Mirrors Edge-like body awareness/persistence" with intuitive object interactions via motion control support.
CloudHead Games' The Gallery: Six Elements Kickstarter ends on April 17. Although The Gallery: Six Elements was designed with the Oculus Rift in mind, the virtual reality headset is not required to enjoy it..
