Allgeier explained how some interactions Insomniac designed to encourage players to watch. Pieces of ice would rain down on me as I climbed, but looking up I could dodge them. horrible creatures hid in the shadows of the ceiling, waiting for their time to get and eat me. But looking up, and plan ahead, I could throw a rock their way to dislodge them, leading to an easy kill melee.
An interesting feature of the game is the way it has treated cutscenes. When I interacted with an object of perspective in the third person disappeared and the camera came tight – almost between Howard and I. It was like I was standing next to him in the same conversation circle.
He does not think I know that almost a cutscene before. It was almost intimate, and certainly something completely new for me in VR.
Right now, Allgeier said, his team is not quite sure how long the game will be. He put it in the strangely large range of 2-10 hours. It is also not sure how much it will cost. All he could tell me is that it would be ready shortly after the launch of the Oculus this spring.
