A Kickstarter campaign for the world's first cyberpunk, virtual reality, rock opera steps into its final week.
VRFocus- CSP Industries is currently pushing hard for its Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign for a virtual reality (VR) rock opera named [NUREN] The New Renaissance. The team hopes to raise some $70,000 USD in order to develop this unique project for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). But that’s not the only HMD that players can expect to experience the title on should it pass its Kickstarter; the developer has also confirmed to VRFocus that it will be bringing [NUREN] The New Renaissance to the newly-announced HTC Vive.
IndieGames tracked down Jake Kaufman and Jessie Seely to talk about Virtual Reality, tough lady robots, sweet tunes, and all the other things that are going into [NUREN] The New Renaissance.
Vince DiCola embodies the era of laser rock. His synth-heavy compositions for Rocky IV and Transformers: The Movie helped to define the soundscape of a generation, and now for the first time in his career he’ll be creating a totally original song with one of his industry proteges. Kaufman, who grew up on Transformers and listened to ‘Hearts on Fire’ from Rocky IV “so many times that his walkman gave out,” says that this collaboration is a “lifelong dream coming true.” If you’re a music lover, [NUREN] gets more enticing by the minute.
