MotherVR is a pet project that came far later than most would have expected. Now that it's here, though, the lone developer isn't quite done with it yet. There's more to come, and it's coming soon.
Nibre, author of the Alien: Isolation injection mod recently came forward lightly promising a new update to the program that finally brought VR back to one of its earliest AAA titles.
The program, released at the tail end of July this year, saw minor updated toward the end of August and very little since. Speaking up on Twitter on Monday, Nibre mentioned that another update should finally be pushed out later in the week. In it, Nibre is at least hoping to enable snap-turning and re-aligned HUD elements. At a push, he's hoping to get another settings page up and running for those who really want to fine-tune the experience.
For those who don't know what we're talking about, MotherVR is a third-party mod that enables VR support in Alien: Isolation - a solid Alien game and one of the scariest titles of a generation. Developed by Creative Assembly, Alien: Isolation once supported the early age of VR with things like the Oculus Rift Development Kit, but official support was culled from the final release of the game.
We don't know why it's taken someone so long to do what Creative Assembly wouldn't, but we're just glad they have. Keep on eye on Nibre's Github page for the updated release, or just grab the current version if you haven't already. Of course, you'll need a copy of Alien: Isolation on hand to get it all up and running.
