Project Torus, developed by the host of the Rev VR Podcast, Rev. Kyle Riesenbeck, is hoping to raise $3,200 USD on Kickstarter by 16th August 2014 in order to fund development of the title. If successful, the video game aims to arrive on a wide range of VR displays, including the Oculus Rift, Project Morpheus, and Android based systems such as GameFace and IMMERSION VRelia. This would make Project Torus one of the first VR videogames to achieve this level of cross-platform availability.
Project Torus is a 360-degree first-person shooter experience designed for VR. It is a fast-paced title that takes inspiration from the likes of classics such as Space Invaders and Asteroids. Players control a gun turret centered in a round stadium and must destroy a UFO that drops health-draining orbs. The camera is controlled using the given HMD’s head-tracking technology and use one button to fire. Standard versions of the title will also let you play with a mouse on PC or by moving a smartphone around with the mobile version.
