Daydream Blue gives players an open-world exploration game on Gear VR
Samsung’s Gear VR’s marketplace is slowing growing and Ralph VR is bringing it’s first title to the platform today. Early adopters of the VR hardware can now play Daydream Blue — an open-world exploration game.
The game is coming just two months ahead of the Gear VR’s full November release and will offer those who grab the tech a nice VR world to get lost in right away.
The project was initially launched by Richie Hoagan — the lead designer for Ralph VR — and his desire to look up at the sky and watch clouds go by in virtual reality.
The game has grown and is now a Gold Prize winner in the 2015 Oculus Mobile VR Jam and is positioned to give first time VR players a solid experience on the Oculus/Samsung Gear VR releasing in November.
The world is highly stylized, low-polygonal environment and simply offers a pleasant world for players to relax in. Players can craft some basics items as well, but development will continue to go on to expand the things players can interact with in the game.
Currently, players can reshape their environment with a malleable world. A few select mini-games are also available like golfing and fishing.
While there isn’t too much to do yet, the atmosphere has been set very well with wildlife roaming the wilderness and the time of day progressing as you play.
Ralph VR is promising two updates each month to Daydream Blue to keep a steady flow of content.
The title is available to current Samsung Gear VR owners for $9.99.
