Jonathan Blow, the developer behindBraid, has confirmed that hisupcoming puzzle adventure gameThe Witnesswill support VR headset technology.
He confirmed this news on the game's official website, saying that he's been working with Valve to make this a reality."Last year I was pessimistic about VR systems in the near future,"Blow explained. "But I was fortunate enough to get a sneak peek at Valve’s virtual reality system. It is so much better than anything else I had used that I was instantly very excited by it."
He then went on to add:
In late November I spent a few days at Valve’s offices working with Atman Binstock and Doug Church to adapt the HMD’s input system more thoroughly forThe Witnessand to build a few scenes that are playable on the device.This is certainly exciting news, as a game likeThe Witnesswill most definitely work beautifully with virtual reality tech. I just hope it doesn't make me motion sick...
