July 31, 2014 Update! Version 2 Released!
DK2 Support, New Volcanic level, four new enemies including boss & miniboss; Non-vr version now with Mac support!

It finally all comes together for the preliminary demo! Fire up your brand new Oculus DK2 and venture into the world of VR shoot em' up action! Version 2 contains the final polish that gives this demo the giant lift it needed. Perfected aim mechanics, better collisions, grandly improved enemy movement & capability, difficulty settings, new enemies, a new powerup, a new boss and a whole new level: Interleave VR Preliminary Demo v2 is simply a new game!

From hereon, updates to the game will almost only address breaking bugs and hardware support (Oculus) improvements. Development of the full game, from a clean slate, should begin in September, hopefully yielding new playable content in the form for Interleave VR Beta Demo sometime around the holidays.

The Preliminary Demo was a concept build, outside of the alpha/beta stage process of development, and will remain free and available on this site the entire time.

A VR Fantasy Shoot 'Em Up
Interleave VR is a fantasy shoot 'em up for the Oculus Rift that introduces a unique VR-specific mechanic allowing for the comfortable use of third person view in fully immersive virtual reality. While the game's basics are simple and intuitive - akin to playing Starfox, Nano Assault or Kid Icarus Uprising - the inner workings are designed exclusively for VR, providing a third person view concept that won't cause motion sickness even in the most sensitive of players and thus ensuring intense, sustained gameplay against relentless enemies, through obstacles and goals.

In addition to introducing a brand new VR third-person mechanic, the Interleave VR Preliminary Demo is charged with above-par graphics, cool spaceship models, in-game dialogue and the added punch of a driving soundtrack!

Interleave VR is a free preliminary demo for now. This demo will be further ramped up with more content. Coming winter 2014-15 development of the full game - off a clean slate - will begin. The plan is to go for a 5-level shoot 'em up with story elements and transition segments between levels like the subspace tunnel.
