Wow, those system requirements are a bit ominous... looks gorgeous though.

The old playable demo seems still to be available - might require Index or Vive though:

Awesome, I played the old demo when I first got my CV1 and have been waiting to see if anything would come of it. Look forward to this.

Might just be old estimates before optimization, game might be dead in the water with those requirements - or could be part of a 3080 Ti push  😄  

I've been burnt before - might go for Oculus, because sometimes having no ASW 2.0 really hurts  B)

Done right this game could be all kinds of awesome, graphics do not look dated - actually graphics look quite ... demanding ... maybe - these are old shots from 2016:

Excellent detail! And those woody scenes have a strong Channelwood feel (Myst). I'm in!

Tried the 2016 demo, it's a nice app, Index controllers emulate Wands with no problems. It's fun to watch the gnomes, or was it goblins, lol. 

But I don't think super sampling works, res 300% gives me solid 90 fps - and looks like res 100%. It's super-blurry, like soaked in temporal antialiasing which can't be deactivate. Might look much better using CV1, it's too gray using lcd.  

It's much like TheBlu, although you can interact a little you more or less just stand there and watch some small stories unfold. Quality must have been very high in 2016 - if I could super sample the demo would not look dated.

Really looking forward to this title!

I'll see if I can figure out how to Supersample it. Just seeing this. Been sick for last couple days with a severe case of Strep so I've been mostly:

I tried multiple ways of trying to increase the r.screenpercentage but it's not working for some reason. They also have the console disabled. Bummer. Oh well, hopefully this new release is in a more up to date version of Unreal Engine. I also hope they drop the mandatory room scale.
