The Gallery: Six Elements offers a tour of its tunnels in new trailer

June 23rd - via:
The Gallery: Six Elements, a first-person adventure game designed with Oculus Rift in mind, recently raised $83,000 on Kickstarter, more than its goal of $65,000. It's easy to see why – The Gallery looks to be a tense, dark exploration game that takes full advantage of the Oculus Rift and PC motion-gaming controls. It won't have to be played with a virtual reality headset, but why wouldn't you? (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup

April 14th - via:
Last weekend took on a life of its own, which is the sort of thing weekends should probably do more often, and I was stranded away from my trusty keyboard and therefore unable to type words about games that might exist at some point in the future. This was a sad thing. Fortunately, missing a week means that there are more winners than ever before and the bumper crop contains two games that I’ve played and enjoyed, at least three that I look forward to playing when they are released and a project that makes me realise how much I want to play with an Oculus Rift. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup

March 24th - via:
A few winners, a few losers and a heap of new entries. It’s a busy week and there are quite a few projects that people have contacted me about that aren’t included, even though I’m interested in them. I’ll do some individual posts on those over the next couple of days but, for now, feast your eyes on the contents of the Katchup at the breadth of gaming delights that it contains. Then feel a bit morose that Rogue System probably isn’t going to be on your computer for a long time. (Read More)

The Gallery: Six Elements lauches Kickstarter with Oculus Rift VR in sight

March 19th - via:
The reality for Myst lovers is that there just haven't been all that many solitary exploration games in recent years. But perhaps virtual reality will open up whole new worlds once again, this time in a way never experienced before. That's certainly the plan for The Gallery: Six Elements, which is is one of first adventures (if not THE first) to be designed for the Oculus Rift, the highly acclaimed upcoming VR device. (Read More)
