Get Even Developer Weighs In On VR, Reveals New Details
Remember Get Even? It’s the game that might just be redefining what it means to be at the pinnacle of next-gen technology and what games can do visually. Using 3D scanning technology, developer The Farm 51 is able to create these stunningly realistic environments with serious depth and texture to them. Rather than listen to me butcher a description of the game, just go watch this trailer. It may look like a cinematic but that it reportedly what we can expect from gameplay.
Of course, by all means you should be very wary of it since the game has over a year left of development with a launch date set for 2015 and the game releasing on Xbox One, PC and PS4.

Given that the game is crafted using 3D scanning and real environments, it stands to reason tha The farm 51 should have a few things to say about VR and how relevant it is not only at the moment but to the future of gaming.
In a press release sent to VG247 today, The Farm 51′s CEO and lead designer Wojtek Pazdur said, “The global reaction to Get Even’s January announcement was a welcome surprise for us. Now, as part of the new Greenlight campaign, it is time to share more details.
“In The Farm 51 we think of a video game world as an alternate reality, not that of an interactive movie. The exciting opportunities offered by Virtual Reality and developments in that sector offer a huge benefit to a game aimed to be as immersive as ours. Get Even has the potential to support the VR concept like no other title. This is why we want to be a part of this new revolution and is why Get Even can be a landmark title in its use.”
Being more than just a pretty face, Get Even sees players hopping between realities across two campaigns. One as the primary protagonist and the other as an elite enemy. Other players can invade your world at any time and will look just like all the other enemies. You won’t know who is AI and who isn’t. That should solve the problem of dumb enemies. At least to some extent.
It’s not yet clear which devices Get Even will support but the developers are definitely interested in VR.
As something of a tease, the studio mused, “What would happen if you can travel between different Virtual Realities, starting outside the game using a device like Oculus VR or Project Morpheus before going deeper and deeper inside the game using similar in-game gadgets?”
“VR systems are a melody of a truly next-gen experience. We expect that consumer versions of VR devices will start revolutionizing the gaming market in 2015,” Pazdur concluded. “We are now working hard to implement VR devices into our gameplay. It is a great adventure for our team to mix VR experience with the highly realistic 3D scanning technology we use in Get Even. I’m so excited when I think where it may take us and what are the possibilities in such combination.”
Basically, they want to create VR Inception. Count me in.
