Renegade Kid's Cult County to support Project Morpheus for PS4 if funded

New, 4 comments

Upcoming survival horror game Cult County will support virtual reality play with Sony's recently announced VR headset, Project Morpheus, if its minimum funding goal is met, Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham told Polygon via email.

Renegade Kid recently announced on Kickstarter that it will be "getting [its] hands on [Project Morpheus] in the near future" to use with the game. Watsham told Polygon the team wanted to work with Project Morpheus because the experience is like "strapping a 3DS to your head."

"You get the sense of stereo depth, but with blinkers on, so the outside world is tuned out," Watsham said. "This allows you to further immerse yourself into the gaming world. The effect this presentation has on a first-person survival horror game, like Cult County, is quite profound. Wearing Depend briefs will be recommended."

Since its launch on April 7, Cult County's Kickstarter campaign has raised more than $26,000 of its $580,000 goal with the help of over 1,000 backers. Fundraising efforts will come to an end on May 2.

Project Morpheus, a peripheral for PlayStation 4 that uses the PlayStation Camera and PlayStation Move, was revealed at Game Developers Conference 2014; the full presentation is now available online.

Cult County was originally announced as a Nintendo 3DS title to be released this year. However, the project grew "beyond the scope" of the handheld system. It's now being developed for Linux, Mac and Windows PC via Steam, as well as PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U and Xbox One.
