Kismet is at PAX East 2017!

Come meet us in person and try Kismet for both VR and non-VR PC Edition at PAX East 2017, March 10-12!

We will be exhibiting Kismet as part of the incredible Indie MEGABOOTH, right in the center of the show floor. You can find us listed in the guide under our company name, Psyop, at booth 16078

The show, as always, is sold out... but if you're there, you simply must stop by and say hello. We'd love to get to chat with you, face-to-eerie-victorian-plague-mask.

Here's the Indie MEGABOOTH map, which represents the center chunk of the expo floor, with the full expo hall map below:

We look forward to meeting you!

Kismet Development Update

It's been a little while since we updated you guys on the progress of Kismet, so I have some news to share.

First, a big THANK YOU to everyone out there who has tried Kismet and recommended it to a friend. In these early days of VR, your support has been HUGE for us. Kismet has been downloaded thousands of times all over the world, and the reception has far exceeded our original hopes and dreams for this quirky experience. We appreciate the positive reviews we've gotten here on Steam especially, where we've consistently held a 90%+ positive rating. If you've ever doubted if these user reviews matter, you can stop doubting it--they do!

Here is what the Kismet dev team is exploring right now.

  • Mobile Kismet - While we built Kismet for PC, we have heard from a lot of fans that mobile platforms are their only way into VR right now. We would love for you to be able to try our experience, so we're investigating how a mobile port would work.
  • Non-VR Kismet - We've also heard from PC owners who would like to try Kismet without investing in a headset. Having focused on creating something with real potential to appeal to a wide audience, it's time to reach out to that audience the best we can. VR continues to be the best way to experience the immersive design of Kismet, but as headset adoption rates take their time moving up, we want to keep sharing our work with more people who might truly appreciate it.
  • Additional Headsets - Technology is moving fast, and we intend to keep up with it. From VR to AR, we are as excited as everyone else for what the future holds.
  • Additional Languages - English not your primary language? We've been translating Kismet into Spanish, French, and German, and are on our way to getting those languages into the experience.
  • Hitting the Road - In the past year, Kismet has been available for demo at events like IndieCade, Ciclope, and UploadVR's E3 and GDC events. These won't be the last chances to try Kismet at a show or expo near you.
  • New VR Games - Kismet wasn't the only project that Psyop will be releasing in VR. We're already hard at work on our next full VR-native game, with additional projects gearing up as well. As soon as we have more to share with you, we will!

About This Game

Would you like to know what the future holds in store for you? Put on your Oculus Rift or HTC Vive headset and take part in a first-of-its-kind VR experience: Kismet. Developed by award-winning creative studio Psyop, Kismet is a collection of three activities, including a past-present-future Tarot Card reading (“The Cards”), daily Astrology session (“The Stars”), and ancient boardgame Ur (“A Game of Wit”).

Powered by a deck of 22 hand-painted Tarot cards and an accurate real-time map of the solar system, Kismet is meant to be experienced daily, with unique outcomes that are directly tied to not only the cards that you choose, but your birthday and the actual alignment of celestial bodies at the time of your reading. Seated across a table from an enchanted automaton with the power to look into the future, you’ll be transported to a place where magic is real, brought to life in a beautifully detailed, handmade, Gothic style.

  • Attention Oculus Rift Users:

    Kismet is available in two versions, one for Vive and one for Rift. To launch the Rift version, you need to find the game in your Library, right click it, and launch it in the "Other VR" mode (as opposed to Vive mode). If you accidentally launch Vive mode, such as through an icon created during the game's Steam installation process, the game will be unable to find your Xbox controller.
  • Attention HTC Vive Users:

    Because Kismet is a sitting experience in a room scale environment, we recommend that you find a comfortable place to sit down and then reset your seated position at that point. To do that on the Vive, push the bottom button on your motion controller to bring up the Steam menu, aim at the Settings cog at the bottom of the menu, pull the trigger, and select "Reset Seated Position" from the General VR Settings menu. After that, you can move your head around to inspect the details of the environment and take advantage of positional audio within the experience.

  • Kismet is designed to work with each individual headset's bundled controllers. On Vive it is compatible with motion control, on Rift it is compatible with Microsoft Xbox One gamepad.
  • Kismet has multiple graphics quality settings which are bound to the keyboard. The Lowest quality setting is mapped to the "1" key, Medium is set to "2", and the High graphics setting is mapped to "3". Kismet's default render quality is set to "2" Medium, and will run on minimum specification hardware. If your machine is more powerful than minimum specifications, try bumping up to the next rendering level!
