Crystal Rift’s New Screenshots Released
Crystal Rift was first launched as a demo for a Kickstarter campaign to generate enough funds for further development until completion.
The game is now in the last week of its crowd funding campaign that was launched first in November 2014. Crystal Rift has been created by indie developers Jon Hibbins and Nick Pittom; both of whom went for the Kickstarter campaign so they could raise around £4,000 GBP to complete the game until the final stages. There is now only the last 25% left to achieve, which will also help the developers in successfully completing a number of other smaller but eqully relevant goals. To complete the last quarter, the developers have released new screenshots to generate even more interest in the title so that people keep contributing.
Hibbins and Pitton haven’t just launched these few pictures to pique the interest of fans; they have announced that they will be adding several important updates to Crystal Rift. The updated demo released for the game will include all the new graphics and visuals along with newer challenges that may or may not be slightly harder than the ones set before. A few other improvements and changes have also been added but the developers are reluctant to reveal all the details and want to wait for the official launch so that players can find out for themselves what’s new in store for them.
Crystal Rift is a dungeon themed game, compatible with Oculus Rift’s virtual reality headset. The game is a grid based dungeon crawler, highly exciting and with newer challenges for serious fans. The first few scenes of Crystal Rift are set in dungeons that are dimly lit, in keeping with the mysterious ambience the developers wanted the game to project. Players are supposed to navigate through these dungeons and uncover secrets as soon as they defeat a level; following the path of previous fictional players that have passed through these dungeons before them. It is a challenge based game, with above 20 different levels for players to overcome, set in the horror video game genre. Crystal Rift has specifically been developed for being played using Oculus Rift or Gear VR’s virtual reality headset, but can also be played without the headsets. Crystal Rift is available for download on the Oculus Share website. Virtual Reality Times will keep following the progress of Crystal Rift and report back with any further updates.
