Time Machine VR is one of the first “truly native VR games” to hit Steam Early Access, and it uses Oculus Rift DK2 or Crescent Bay along with a controller.

In the VR game, human face extinction due to a plague. You play as a time-travelling scientist who travels back to the Jurassic period to extract DNA from dinosaurs and the like in order to save the human race.

Players will pilot the time machine through the prehistoric oceans and “navigate a dangerous food chain,” all the while “tracking, probing, scanning and baiting” the beasts.

A playable 10-minute demo is available for free on Steam, with premium access to the game’s first hours of content available at an introductory price of $9.99.

Minority plans to release major updates throughout the rest of the year, approximately every four weeks. The game will be expanded with new levels, creatures, features, and more. The price of the game will increase with every major update.
