JERUSALEM (AFP) - Amusement parks are in the crosshairs of a new amusement park safety law which would force them to provide video surveillance to police, a top amusement park official said Tuesday."We're not saying they're not safe, we're just saying that it's a bit difficult to have a clear picture of what they're doing," Amusements Park owner Ronan Eichenberger told AFP."If you have a large amu...
A new virtual reality game is set to hit Steam for the first time.
It’s called “The Void,” and it’s set to launch on April 30 for $39.99.
It’s a VR game, not a console game, but it does have SteamVR support, so you’ll be able to play with the headset on your PC.
“The Void” is a game that puts players in the shoes of a girl named Luna, who has a crush on a boy named Jacob.
The story is told through Luna’s VR headset.
“When Luna finds Jacob, she learns he has a secret and must find out how to save his life.
Luna must also work as a detective, solve cases, and solve puzzles to complete the story.”
The game’s trailer, which has been viewed more than 500,000 times on Steam, shows Luna being attacked by a giant worm.
The game also includes a “Lunar Adventure,” a “lunar forest,” and an “intergalactic city.”
Players will have to collect coins to buy items, solve puzzles, and interact with other characters.
The “luna adventure” is about finding a way to save Luna’s life, while the “space adventure” will explore the stars.
Luna is a girl who is living in the virtual world.
It has many puzzles, including one where you have to figure out the meaning of “Luna,” and you have a choice of playing as Luna or Jacob.
Lunara is a big fan of games like “Battlestar Galactica,” which she plays on her headset.
“It’s a big time for me,” she told GamesBeat in a phone interview.
“I’m very interested in new experiences and new things.”
She’s not the only one.
“I love games that are new and different,” said Matt Smith, who is the lead programmer of the game.
“That’s why I’m passionate about it.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with a lot of the developers, and they’ve all been amazing.”
It sounds like a game you’d expect to be available on Steam for a very low price.
That’s because “The Laundryman,” the first game Smith worked on with former Bungie employee Dan Goldfarb, is priced at $49.99 on Steam.
Smith said he was a little surprised when he started the project.
“It’s not what I expected to get for $19,” he said.
“But it’s been great to get feedback from people that have played it.”
“I’m not going to lie, I have a few weird ideas.
I just haven’t figured out how I want to make them.”
Smith’s biggest hurdle is that he has to keep up with the Steam developer portal, which is currently experiencing technical issues.
The game is now playable on the official Steam store, and he said he expects to have the game ready for release by the end of the week.
“As I was getting ready to launch it on Steam the issues with the site were kind of piling up,” Smith said.
He said he is hopeful that will fix itself.
“That will allow me to be able put it up in the official store.
That will be the easiest way to get it out there,” he told Gamesbeat.
The developer portal was a big factor in “The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress,” a VR adventure game released last year by Bungie and developer Double Fine.
Smith said he had to put a lot more work into “Moon Is a Harasser,” because the developer portal only allowed a few players to play at once.
“You can have one person and three people playing simultaneously, and it would be really difficult for a single person to see everything,” he explained.
“So I had to make sure there was enough people on the portal for three to play simultaneously.”
Smith said it took him “an hour and a half” to get the game up and running.
He also said it was a long process because the developers were trying to work out how the portal worked.
“We had a few months to work through it, and then we had to go back and fix all the issues,” he recalled.
“There are some big issues that we’re having now that we’ll have to work on as we get further along.”
For now, it’s a bit hard to tell how many people will be playing “Moon is a Haraser,” but Smith said the developer was working on fixing the problems.
He expects the game will be available to play on Steam and other virtual reality platforms soon.
“At this point, I’m still waiting on them to let us know they are releasing the game,” he noted.
