Hi everyone,

We have been working on our debut title Weeping Doll and we recently published on steam greenlight, please check it out http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=741515419

We wanted to hear what you guys think about the concept, the art and our trailer. We plan on release on Oculus, Steam and PSVR. 

Thanks!

    Looks cool will it have Vive wand or Touch interactions with objects though, something which was absent from The Assembly and diminished the immersion.

    Hi, I'm producer of Weeping Doll. Motion control is definitely something that will enhance the immersive feeling of VR game. However, we found that to do motion control and gamepad control both right, it requires 2 sets of interaction design and implementation. Due to limited programmer resource, we decided to release the gamepad version first, which can be enjoyed by all Oculus owners, since gamepad is bundled with all Oculus Rift, Touch is optional.
    To be assured, we designed the gamepad interaction to be comforted, none dizziness and none fatigue. After mastering it, I'm sure players can be immersed in our game for a long period of time.

    Thanks for clarification. So if I understand correctly you will add motion controls at a later date. Cool.

     I know I'll be slated for saying this but I'm going to anyway. I'm sure some people might believe Oculus have been  holding back VR game development in some ways with their reliance on the Xbox One controller being bundled with the Rift instead of Touch. It means games like this one which look like a natural fit for motion controls doesn't have them because of this decision.  Same goes for The Assembly and no doubt several other games.

     The problem with Touch releasing in the coming months is it will cause a divide between an already niche market. Only the devs with the resources/manpower will want to develop for it due to the fact it's easier to go with the bundled Xbox One controls because this has the greatest reach/audience.

    I hope TianShe Media can work some magic and add Touch/Wand controls post release.

    What I think is that I want this game now!  Please publish on the Oculus Store as soon as it's ready. Don't be afraid to publish in early access if you have a demo.

    This looks absolutely amazing :) great job

    But I thought that VR games didn't need to get greenlit , I thought you only need to contact steam and show them your game , so why did you need to get greenlit ?
    also ,do you need to reach the 10000 likes or it has a lower threshold ?

    There's no set in stone criteria you need to hit, I think. We were really well received and had lots of positive comments. We have made a new trailer that we want to share with you too, that shows how we made moving in VR with our system "Shadow Step."

    This looks so damn good! Hope to see it on Oculus Home - not sure what kind of price point you have in mind, but this could easily be a day one purchase for me!

    Thank you everyone! We are releasing it on Oculus as well and we haven't set the price 100% but it will be at the $10 mark.

    Looks great, looking forward to buying it, so it can sit in my library of loads of other games I haven't played yet (must start playing them soon).

    The setting looks really nice! Can you fully explore/stroll through the house?

    You can fully walkaround the house. We used a 'Ghost Step' movement scheme, something like a teleport mechanism, but using left stick on the controller to control a 'ghost' to mark your teleport spot's location and rotation. However, not everything in the house is intractable. The interaction in our game is more like a point-click style, in VR.

    I just read about this game on UploadVR where it was stated to be a PSVR game. And was hoping it would come to the Rift at some stage as well. I'm very happy to see that it is and I look forward to playing it. :)

    Yes! We are releasing on PSVR on the 27th and bringing it to Oculus and Steam soon after :)

    Good luck with the game. I'm no fan of teleport so I may hold back. I find it far more disorienting and nausea inducing than free roaming personally.
