Today we are publishing an small update, in fact, there are only two items in it:
People who followed us in the last year were aware of the effort we put in the Enhanced Edition was VR ready from day 1. We worked hard to redo the game using Unreal Engine 4 and Carlos invested countless hours stalking how people walk in order to create VR Olive, a locomotion system meant to reduce dizziness in VR when you play with a gamepad.
VR Olive was not perfect for everyone, but it specially failed when you have such a different device as the VIVE is, with its controllers and the ability to move around. It’s a great technology for VR. But Mind is not a VR game, and because of this it was not easy to adapt it.
As you may know we are working in new games. We released Annie Amber for GearVR last month (do I said we are running a little contest?) and now we are porting it to other VR devices and at the same time working in a new title we will announce soon.
The easy way was to focus in the new projects and let MIND rest in peace. But you, our community, make us what we are and thanks to you MIND is a successful game. So thanks to your feedback we noticed that there was something wrong. You deserve a complete VR experience with MIND.
In this update we added to MIND: Path to Thalamus a teleporting motion system to the VIVE users.
When VIVE is detected, you will see a “lantern” in the game, by using the trigger and you will see a white line ending in an sphere, point to the place you want to teleport to and if the sphere is green, you will get that point as soon as you release the trigger. Additionally, you can use the trackpad to move around WASD style.
With the other hand you can grab the ball using the trigger. Additionally, if you play with only one station and 360º movement is not possible, you can click the touchpad to rotate the body 30º.
Finally, we modified some parts of the game to fit this new system. Some puzzles needed some tweaking to assure you don’t teleport to places you are not meant to reach. Some others are now easier for evident reasons.
We hope you will enjoy the update.
“As visual, explorable art, it’s masterful. As a puzzle game, it’s rewarding and taxing.”
