FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Climb into the cockpit of an alien craft and tear up the anti-gravity track as you do battle with over 30 real and AI opponents. Rift ready, and offering single and multiplayer action, you’ll be able to fully immerse yourself in intense races on tubular tracks featuring gut-wrenching twists, turns and drops. Plus Weapons! And Explosions! AND Customisation!

Created by former Black Rock Studios and NCsoft developers, Radial-G is the debut title from newly-founded, Brighton-based games company Tammeka and will be the first Oculus Rift-ready racer to market and is currently the most polished VR racing experience available.

Kickstart the future of virtual reality racers

The Radial-G prototype has been lauded by VR enthusiasts at several national events and this Oculus Rift-ready PC title is due to arrive on Kickstarter on Thursday July 3, where gamers will be able to play the FREE single-player demo and help turn this amazing single player demo into a fully-fledged multiplayer game.

Try out the PC title for free using the Oculus Rift VR headset, or play as normal “NOculus” mode on your monitor if you don’t have a VR headset. Both versions support xbox gamepads with rumble to really feel the speed! Mac and Oculus Rift DK2 support is coming very, very soon.

Kickstarter

Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects. It’s a home for everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of projects, big and small, that are brought to life through the direct support of ordinary people. Since the launch in 2009, 6.5 million people have pledged $1 billion, funding 64,000 creative projects.

Oculus Rift

Oculus Rift, a ground-breaking virtual reality headset for immersive gaming was created by Oculus, a company founded by Palmer Luckey – a self-described virtual reality enthusiast and hardware geek. The company launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund development of their first product, and with the support of top video game companies including Valve, Epic Games and Unity, the Kickstarter was an enormous success, raising over $2.4 million in funding from project backers and supporters around the world.
