Try it while you can - hopefully this (and the developer) will stay around for a while.
Just join the Discord channel, download the ‘exe’ version, extract the archive, import the exe into PiTool, and start from PiTool. When prompted, enter a username and password (this will be permanent so don’t go with a typo if you want to keep the account). Microphone just works too. Simple.
All in all, rather impressive. All the basic mechanics are there, from walking through towns, forest, tall grass, etc, to encountering NPCs, battling, catching, and healing the team, and buying things at the mart. Even tossing a ball to set loose a ‘pet’ that follows you around works.
Also, everyone seems to be on the same server, so it’s pretty normal to see actual people leaning around a town. Interaction with other players seems totally optional too (which is a good thing).
Only real downsides are that other players appear to glitch/lean as they move, the thumbstick locomotion controls are too nonlinear (causing some nausea after a while though this might be due to my 60Hz framerate setting), and chaperone bounds don’t show up (due to apparently using Oculus SDK).
Found this when stepping out of programming code adventures, looking for something that wouldn’t be frustrating to get working and try in VR. Happy to say, it just worked. Took only a few minutes to install, and I was back out of VR in about an hour. Very nice for a brief casual VR experience.
Obviously, a Pimax Vision 8kX is ridiculously excessive for something that could obviously run on an Oculus Quest, but the sharp graphics are really nice.
