Suggestion: VR camera mode
« on: July 08, 2018, 12:21:59 PM »

Apologies if this has already been suggested, I did a quick search and came up empty.

What I would love to see in this game is a VR mode where the current camera would be replaced by a VR camera, really allowing you to look around Portia and connect more closely with your character and the world.

Granted it may not be as easy as just swapping out the camera as I suspect menus and dialog would need to be looked at in order to position on a plane rather than taking up the whole screen, but controls could remain the same (keyboard or joypad at least for me, I don't think touch controls would be necessary or bring anything to the game).

For anyone unsure if 3rd person games would work in VR, I'd suggest having a look a Luckys Tale or Witchblood for examples of how immersive 3rd person games can be, as well as these posts I came across while looking of there were similar VR games already out there.

With nothing else even close to Portia (at least none that I am aware of) available in VR, this could also open up the game to a whole new market.

Anyway, I'd love to hear what you think.
