Strike Suit Zero Oculus Rift support announced

Wonderful news: space-bound mech shooter Strike Suit Zero is going to support the Oculus Rift VR headset. For backers who have separately backed the headset and are expecting the dev kit version to arrive in the post the can gain access to the Strike Suit Zero Rift beta by adding a dollar to their pledge.

More details below.

"Imagine taking to a fully 3D cockpit, navigating space and looking about your environment as if you were actually there," writes Born Ready in the announcement post on their Kickstarter. "The Oculus Rift will allow you to look all around you, letting you keep track of the enemy in a way that doesn't just rely on a radar. This will really change up the core dogfighting experience."

However, the do iterate "As the consumer version of the Oculus Rift isn’t available yet, this is for those people who are picking up an Oculus dev kit, and want to help us work on and balance the Oculus version of the game." If you are one of those dev kit owning backers "you can add just $1 to your pledge to get access to an Oculus-specific beta that will launch early next year."

The benefit is a two way street because Born Ready get a larger pool of testers to sample the technology before the game's release and they "can share what [they've] learnt about the development process, too."

As it is most likely developers who have invested in the dev kit version of the Oculus headset - it arrives in pieces and needs to be assembled by the recipient, as opposed to the consumer version which will arrive fully assembled (without duct tape) - information about coding support for the technology into Strike Suit Zero could be invaluable. Particularly if they reach their mod tools stretch goal.

There are still nine days to go on the Strike Suit Zero Kickstarter, so, if you want to get involved with the beta it's not too late to pledge your support.
