Effectively right here’s a welcome bit of stories. Untethered, an incomplete episodic VR collection that appeared destined to die alongside the Google Daydream platform it was unique to, is being reimagined for different headsets as Space Man Lives.
That Dragon, Most cancers developer Numinous Video games is returning to develop this new challenge, which is backed by Cyan Ventures, the funding arm of the developer behind Myst, Obduction and Firmament. Space Man Lives appears to make use of the identical surroundings seen in episode 1 of Untethered and an analogous mechanic; you embody a radio DJ in a small city within the USA.
The sport requires you to bodily communicate out loud when recording radio reveals, together with interviewing callers. Take a look at the announcement trailer under although, admittedly, it doesn’t really inform you a lot in regards to the core sport.
However Space Man Lives is a thriller sport at its coronary heart. As you hearken to folks dialing into your present, you start to note an odd sample of occasions creating in your coastal group.
That is typically alongside the traces of what occurred in Untethered, although the second episode was fairly completely different. Numinous had been engaged on a 3rd episode of the collection however revealed in late 2018 that it had misplaced its funding, presumably from Google itself as its Daydream efforts began to say no. The episode was placed on hiatus and, frankly, we didn’t count on to see it resurrected. Based mostly on screenshots, it seems to be like this model will characteristic full hand controls (the unique solely included Daydream’s single movement controller).
Because it stands, the sport shall be coming to Oculus Quest, PC VR headsets and “a handful of different headsets”, which we hope means PSVR.
