A made-for-VR adventure game, Time Machine VR from developer Minority Media (Papo & Yo) is coming to PlayStation VR in late 2016, and is available today on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive for $29.99 USD.
Promising over 10 hours of gameplay, Time Machine VR is written by Jill Murray (Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag) and sees you playing as an adventurous time-hopping cadet who heads to the Jurassic era to gather data on dinosaurs that live in the ocean. When rising temperatures in the present unleash a deadly virus from the ice caps, you have to search in the past for a cure among the animals who survived it the first time around.
During the game you’ll have access to a variety of tools granting you the ability to freeze time, bait dinosaurs and manipulate them, and take pictures of dinosaurs.
Minority Media CEO Vander Caballero said:
VR is the only way to make this game. We’ve spent three years re-creating prehistoric creatures and the oceans they lived in… and their sheer scale in VR is heart-stopping. A livyatan on a flatscreen TV is cool to look at; a VR livyatan twenty times your size with a mouth so big you can stand comfortably in it is out of this world.
PlayStation VR launches in October 2016, so expect Time Machine VR around then or shortly after.
