I really, really want this but I am pretty sure it has stalled out. The site has not changed at all since it was 'announced' in that Unreal VR Demo reel. Also absolutely no updates on any of the social media sites associated with the game. Everything about it looks awesome though and since Vivespray is such a horror show and Kingspray is more dedicated to traditional 'bombing' and not streamlined art creation the need for an app like this in my life is real.
I really dig Kingspray, but yeah, I've been waiting to hear more on this one for so long now. Does look stalled, as you said, by all outward appearances. I've pretty much given up on it and largely forgotten about it. Bummer.
I've been meaning to pickup a spray painting app but never got around to it. This one looks pretty amazing though!
Can you elaborate on what you mean by Vivespray being a horror show?
When you say Kingspray is dedicated to traditional bombing do you mean it's more simulator and doesn't take advantage of more digital tools? Like not having a mirror mode or such functionality?
So... Vivespray. First off a little back story: Kingspray was one of the first third party 'games' to gain a lot of exposure because it was something really different in VR; in may of 2016 its preview video made waves at nearly every major tech news site. It was originally a Vive exclusive set to release in the early fall of 2016, but the developer get a little cash from Oculus to port the game to the Rift and have a simultaneous release(the rift actually got it a few hours early IIRC). This of course made some fanboys mad and left a void where it should have been until it's release in December 2016.
This is where Vivespray comes in. It released in November of 2016 and not to diminish the work of the dev but it looks pretty thrown together. Maybe they worked on it for a long time, but go look at the videos it just isn't a polished experiance. To add to that the game went from Early Access to released really quickly and immediately after Vivespray 2 was released in EA at a higher price than the original. The sequel is an unintuitive mess with a horrible interface that has some good tools(that are largely broken) and some decent ideas, but falls flat. On top of that it doesn't feel authentic at all, it is more like using the airbrush tool in Photoshop than an actual rattlecan.
When the developer asked for feedback here on Reddit and I gave it I was met with them telling me that I was stupid and didn't know how to play games(then they said they never asked for feedback). Then I noticed that the same Reddit account was constantly coming to the developers defence and making posts praising the game. When I called them out on it the developer deleted their account.
In the end the game is $9 and can be returned so give it a try and see for yourself maybe you will like it.
As for Kingspray: When I say it is dedicated to bombing it is exactly what you thought. It is a really rather amazing recreation of what it feels like to put paint on a wall, but it ends there. It doesn't even have stenciling tools much less more intense digital tools. It does have a projector, but honestly it is a bit of a pain to use, and the projected image is kinda hard to see so I don't use it. Also has some weird tracking issues from time to time that are annoying. But all in all it is far and away the best out there though.
Impressive....hope it isn't dead.
