Time Machine VR: Virtual Reality Dinosaur Safari
Live from the Montreal International Game Summit, Minority Media’s Rommel Romero introduces the eagerly awaited project Time Machine VR and shares the studio’s experience with developing a virtual reality game.
Minority Media presents Time Machine VR, a pre-apocalyptic exploration and adventure game in which the player incarnates a scientist who travels through time to find dinosaurs in order to find a cure for the raging epidemic that is attacking humankind.
Rommel Romero, Media Relations Manager and Writer, gives a few tips to developers who are embarking on their first virtual reality project:
“As developers, we acquire work habits that do not necessarily apply to virtual reality. For example, we have a habit of cutting scenes to explain parts of the intrigue: overusing this technique in VR could make the player uncomfortable.”
-Rommel Romero, Minority Media’s Media Relations Manager and Writer

Time Machine VR is available on an early access basis on Steam, with the official launch slated for April 2016. See the Facebook and Twitter pages for news.
