Folks who (digitally) lined up to buy the HTC Vive have another game to add to their wishlist: Adr1ft. Publisher 505 Games announced today that the game inspired by its creator's Twitter freakout will hit HTC and Valve's room-scale VR platform this May for $20. It's already available for Oculus Rift and has been confirmed for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, albeit in non-VR form.
When I spoke with creator Adam Orth at E3 last year he said that making the game was a form of therapy for him, following his exit as creative director for Microsoft's gaming division.
"The destroyed space station is a metaphor for my life at the time," he said. "This isolation is that I felt entirely alone. Instead of talking about it, I just made a game about it."
