How to play in VR
I've noticed that some players are purchasing Catlateral Damage just for the VR version, so I figured I'd write a quick post about how to get to it. Catlateral Damage was released in May 2015 as a non-VR first-person game and VR support was added as a separate, free update in May 2016. In order to access the VR version, you'll need to download the free VR DLC first:

http://store.steampowered.com/app/474720/
Once you've downloaded the DLC, you'll be prompted to select either the original version or the VR version when you launch the game from your Library. If you've downloaded the DLC and aren't seeing a prompt (i.e. the regular game launches), just close the game and try again. And since the VR version is separate, feel free to leave your VR-specific review on the VR store page instead of the original game's page!

Thanks, and enjoy purrtual reality! :happynippy:
-Chris

Every time I click "Download" for the DLC, it simply opens the non-VR game. Can't get VR to open!

Ah, I think I've figured it out. It was probably in the process of downloading without actually telling me such. It simply worked after a while and suddenly showed installed.

thx for the info. Tried to start the game in the Vive and couldn't figure out why it didn't start.

Will there ever be support for the Oculus Rift? I bought this for my niece to play and when I saw it had VR as a freebie we were both very excited. But sadly it's only playable with a Vive, which we don't have. I did try going in with the Rift to see if it was playable, but as you'd expect I didn't have much luck. We have a front-facing setup and this game really needs you to be able to turn around freely, as there are no rotation controls. It'd be so great to get this on the Rift, though.

Can we get joystick/trackpad movement for the VR?
I want to walk, saunter, run, pounce, leap!
Not just teleport everywhere. :<

This game is also super fun thank you for making it!

Hi, I realize this is probably a rare question, but did anyone get it to run in VR on Linux?
I can install the VR version as often as I want, and it says in the store that Catlateral Damage VR is installed. However, in my library it is still called "Catlateral Damage" (without "VR") and when I launch it, even with Steam VR running, there is no selection to launch it in VR.
Anyone got it working? My kids would really enjoy this...

I know this is late but for anyone else curious, I'm pretty sure VR just isn't available on Linux. Linux didn't really have native VR support until recently, and it's still a hassle to get native Linux VR working right unless you're using a cough hack better game engine like Godot. This is also why Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes also has no VR support on Linux, sadly.

Hopefully though more games will have native VR versions in the future as Linux grows in popularity and engines like Godot continue to improve their VR capabilities. For the time being Proton should allow you to do play the game in VR on Linux (given your computer is capable and Proton feels like working that day)
