AUSTIN, Texas (AP) It will come when, if, it is the last.
The first game to be released by Austin-based game developer, Martins Driving School, will be the first release for the virtual reality driving game “Ride”, which will launch later this year.
The game is currently in development by VR studio Tilt Brush and will be available for download and play through an Oculus Rift headset.
“Ridiculously, I don’t know what we’ll do with the time,” said Robyn Martin, president of Martins.
The company said the title will launch on a platform “that is not a big part of the game development industry”.
“It’s not about trying to make a big game,” Martin said.
“It is really about giving a voice to the next generation of people that are using the technology.”
The first playable game for the Oculus Rift is “Rapture”, a VR-based title from developer 3D Realms.
Martin said the first games for the platform are often in development for years and months, with little time to spend with the players.
“I think there are some really interesting ideas that we could be doing in the future,” Martin told the AP.
The idea of VR driving games has been around for years, but it’s not been seen as a mainstream trend.
But Martins’ company is trying to take advantage of that, and with the Rift and other virtual reality platforms, the opportunity is there.
In a game, the player drives a car in VR and controls a virtual vehicle in real life.
The player must drive around and collect objects in the virtual environment, while driving in a simulated world.
The games focus on the driving experience, with objects, cars and pedestrians.
The titles is also designed for use in VR games, but some developers say they’re more suited to VR than their console counterparts.
“There’s so many VR apps and platforms out there now,” Martin says.
“We’re really just doing our own thing.
VR is just not a part of that.”
The next game to release by Martins is “The Lost,” a VR game by Tilt Brushes.
The title will come out on Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR later this month.
The next big project by a company that started as a group of three Austin-area residents is “Wormhole,” a new VR game.
The upcoming title will be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this fall.
The VR-only title will have players controlling wormholes, or wormholes that can move around in space.
The worms move between worlds.
The developers of “Worphole” are working on new virtual reality titles, including a VR car racing game.
Martin says they’re still in the early stages of development.
“They’re really not a household name yet,” Martin explained.
“People are still talking about them.
But it’s going to be really cool for them to see that we are making it on this new platform.”
