Support for the HTC Vive has been added to Metro Warp!
For now, that means an identical control scheme to the Oculus version. You'll need a controller for the best experience, although it works with just a keyboard. The Vive wands are not currently supported.
Look around to select things, and use either A/X buttons on a controller, or Enter/Return on a keyboard to push. WASD/joysticks to rotate.
To launch in VR for the Vive, either launch from the SteamVR dashboard, or pick "Launch Metro Warp in Steam VR Mode" when launching.
In order to enable this mode (and play any oculus game bought from steam), you'll need to enable "side loading" in the Oculus dashboard. You can follow the instructions here to see how. Once that's done, launch the game and choose the "Launch in other VR" option.
From what I've seen, the side loading on Oculus works best when the headset and program are already booted up. Hopefully that stability will improve with their next few platform updates.
Be aware that the ideal input method is a controller! It's playable with a mouse/keyboard, but it'll be a little awkward. Also, like the Rift itself, this VR support is Windows-only for now.
