Both Ben Lang and I have confessed our love for the classic anti-gravity futuristic racing franchise ‘Wipeout’, and recently Ben waxed enthusiastic about a new Oculus Rift title from UK based developers Tammeka Games. The company launched a £50k Kickstarter for the VR supporting futuristic racer, heavily influenced by Wipeout and F-Zero GX.

Tammeka Games just sent an update to backers stating that a demo supporting both Mac OSX and the soon to be released Oculus Rift DK2 is due for a ‘soft’ release early next week.

We are looking to soft release the Mac single player demo and the PC/Mac DK2-supporting build early next week. If you are a Mac gamer and/or are expecting an Oculus Rift DK2 for Mac/PC to arrive soon, please email info[at]radial-g[dot]com and tell us your system so we can email you a link to the PC/Mac DK2-ready single player demo build!

NB. We have not been able to test this build on DK2 ourselves as we are also waiting for ours to be shipped. Therefore we are looking for feedback from you! Beware: expect bugs!

Sorry Linux gamers, we are still awaiting the fix for the SDK from Oculus VR in order to re-support Linux & Oculus Rift & Unity. We are assured this will be soon!

Recent activity and comments from Oculus VR staff indicate that the first batch of DK2s may ship next week IF Oculus’ DK2 focussed SDK release 0.3.3 comes together as hoped. Frankly, the thought of a 1080p version of Radial-G with head-tracking makes us go a little weak at the knees.

Survios Affirms 'Alien' VR Game is Still in Development

Meanwhile, the games Kickstarter campaign has 12 days remaining at the time of writing and is currently at just over £16k (about $27k). If you’ve ever been even the least bit interested in the likes of Wipeout or F-Zero in the past and you’re VR equipped, you owe it to yourself to check out this Kickstarter.
