Scanner Sombre Coming To VR

Introversion Software released their game Scanner Sombre back in April, depicting the player exploring a save network using a VR headset – although it’s not an actual VR title. That’s set to change though as Introversion have announced that they will be bringing the game to both the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive in the near future.



Speaking at PDXCon, co-founder of Introversion Software Mark Morris said that while the game is coming to VR it would be “nuts at the moment” to focus on VR-exclusive titles which is why they released Scanner Sombre onto other platforms first. He said that Introversion’s Defcon VR game was downloaded by “about seven people”, so he is convinced that VR-exclusivity is not yet a viable way to make a game successful. Now Scanner Sombre has a player base, they’re following up the PC game with the VR version.


“We deliberately didn’t want people thinking Scanner Sombre is a VR game” he said, noting that people would have avoided the game if they had pushed it as a VR compatible title from the off simply because they didn’t own a headset. Indeed right now VR headsets are still fairly pricey and game developers working on those platforms need to keep that in mind.


They’re hoping to have the VR-ready version of Scanner Sombre ready to go in about six weeks, so by the end of the month we’ll probably hear more about it. Until then, you can have a look and see what the fuss is about by finding the game on Steam for $11.99/£8.99.
