Hello everyone! As you may have seen from some of our more recent Tweets and Facebook posts, we've been hard at work in our headsets, bringing our new game Luna to VR.
Those of you who have been following the game's progress may recall that Luna's early PC development explored the idea of a gesture-based interface via our partnership with Intel's RealSense program. We were particularly interested to see how tracking a player's hands could give them the feeling of touching Luna's storybook world, interacting with the creatures & objects they discovered, and connecting with the events that transpired within.
As we continued to investigate these ideas, we saw more and more potential for engaging players and their creativity by directly involving their hands and body. We began to wonder how the game would look in VR, and how it would feel if you could touch it with tracked controllers. And once we saw just how immersive it felt, we knew it had to be...
So we are *very* excited to announce that Luna will be playable in VR at PAX Prime in Seattle this weekend, at the Indie Megabooth (booth 859). We're also thrilled to be showcased by two of our outstanding partners - Oculus and AMD! You will be able to play Luna on all Oculus Touch stations at the PAX 2016 VR Free-Play area (4th floor, Westin - Ballroom 1), and also at AMD (booth 1613).
Luna is a uniquely tactile VR experience, where the focus is on observing, listening and adding your own personal touch to the world. In this particular demo, you can use the tracked controllers to solve puzzles, revealing the pieces of a miniature, musical forest. You can then rebuild the world with these pieces, which slowly reveals Austin Wintory's interactive score, while brinigning the forest & its characters back to life.
In addition to this playable VR version of Luna, we'll have lovely new Luna T-shirts, signed Bird & Owl posters, some new stickers and these incredibly adorable Bird buttons...
Sound beautiful and intriguing? Want some cute swag? Excited to get something signed, shake a hand, or give us some good old fashioned encouragement? Stop by and let us know you're out there!! We're really looking forward to meeting you, listening to you play, and hearing what you think.
