Upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible thriller Private Eye has officially launched a Steam Greenlight campaign. The title, headed up by programmer Jake Slack, is hoping to secure enough votes to be approved for sale on Valve’s digital storefront upon release. Private Eye supports the Oculus Rift VR headset. A trailer for the title can be seen below.
Private Eye casts players as detective Sam Sunderland, a wheelchair-bound amnesiac that observes the actions of his neighborhood from the window of his apartment. Witnessing certain events will unlock playable memories as Sam pieces together a mystery involving a high profile murder. It’s set in the 1950’s and takes many of its queues from movies and media surrounding the period.
An early build of Private Eye is currently available to play on the Oculus VR website. A Kickstarter campaign for the title is also expected to be launching in the future. VRFocus interviewed Jake Slack about the title at the Rezzed event in Birmingham last week and will be bringing you the full video shortly.
