Time Machine VR Available Now on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive
Time Machine VR (TMVR), the made-for-VR adventure game from Minority Media Inc., is available now for $29.99 USD on Rift and Vive, with a PlayStation VR launch slated for later this year. Featuring over 10 hours of gameplay and a gripping narrative penned by Jill Murray, an award-winning writer behind Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Time Machine VR leverages the scale and presence of VR to evoke wonder and pump adrenaline.
Watch the launch teaser of Time Machine VR:
“VR is the only way to make this game,” said Minority CEO Vander Caballero. “We’ve spent three years re-creating prehistoric creatures and the oceans they lived in… and their sheer scale in VR is heart-stopping. A livyatan on a flatscreen TV is cool to look at; a VR livyatan twenty times your size with a mouth so big you can stand comfortably in it is out of this world.”
In the role of an adventurous time-hopping cadet, players will be tasked with traveling to the Jurassic era to gather data on the ancient titans that roamed those oceans. This mission takes a dire turn when rising temperatures in the present free a deadly virus from the ice caps where it had lain dormant for millions of years. To prevent the extinction of the human race, the player must delve deeper into the past, seeking a cure among the marine monsters who survived the plague when it first emerged.
One of the first made-for-VR titles to hit Steam Early Access in 2015, Time Machine VR plunges players into the depths of prehistory, where they can use the Vive’s motion controls or the Rift’s gamepad to navigate the sometimes frightening, always awe-inspiring oceans of early Earth. To complete their mission, players will have a host of hi-tech tools at their disposal: the ability to freeze time, to bait dinosaurs and manipulate situations to their advantage, and to take live snapshots of dinosaurs in action at the push of a button.
Minority Media is an established studio committed to cutting-edge VR game development. Founded by Vander Caballero – a leading figure in Canada’s video games industry and a pioneer in VR – Minority Media’s first title on the platform is Time Machine VR, an exploration adventure game about time travel, prehistoric creatures, and human extinction. Our mission is to craft memorable games that set the standard for VR entertainment.
