Last month the OSVR initiative, an open standard for virtual reality devices, was announced. Razer will release an HMD based on this standard this summer, and the Strafe game will be one of the first to support these devices.
Although the specifications of the Razer HMD are not spectacular, it is to be expected that new devices with better features will arrive later, and it is good to check that there are already projects that will support this open standard. Strafe, the retro-style shooter whose trailer has garnered praise everywhere, confirms that it will be compatible with both the Oculus SDK and OSVR. The Kickstarter campaign has a difficult time reaching its goal despite having already exceeded $ 70,000, a more than worthy figure for this type of campaigns today, but although the frenetic action of this shooter is not ideal for virtual reality, we hope that its authors will find the necessary supports in case of not being financed on Kickstarter. We leave you with the official poster of the game, very appropriate seen the trailer.
