Last year, Runaway Play released their debut VR title, Flutter VR for Daydream. The game about taking a leisurely stroll through the Amazon rainforest to meet various species of butterfly. Though it’s main focus is breaking a feeling of relaxation to the player, Flutter VR also adds an educational element by putting you in the shoes of a wildlife researcher on a mission to document the behavior and characteristics of these majestic creatures.
After a successful run on Google’s Daydream headset, the developers have now announced that Flutter VR is coming to the new Lenovo Mirage Solo with full support for the platform’s 6dof (6 degrees of freedom). To celebrate this release, Runaway is running two live streams this Thursday the 17th NZT (Wednesday 16th PST) and Friday 18th of May NZT (Thursday 17th PST).
The first live stream (17th May NZT) will feature a live Q/A with the team behind the game and a live gameplay feed hosted by Twitch streamer Rudeism. During the stream they will be offering fans the chance to win adorable Toucan & Capybara plushies, as well as a brand new Google Daydream headset. All of this will be going live on Flutter VR’s Facebook page at 1pm Thursday May 17th NZT (6pm Wednesday 16th May PST).
The second live stream is specifically for developers who want to develop VR games and the perfect opportunity to get some solid advice. Runaway will go through the key milestones of making a VR game (from Pre Production Concept, Prototype, Vertical Slice, Alpha, Beta and Release), all the ups and downs, and things the team had learned along the way. The stream will be going live on Flutter VR’s Facebook page Friday 18th May at 3pm NZT (8pm Thursday 17th May PST) .
So whether you’re a VR gamer or looking to develop VR games of your own, it might be a good idea to take a look at what Runner VR has in store.
