<li> Fix one of the HTC Vive Controllers upside-down on the back of the plush toy (for example with rubber bands or scrunchies). Assure that it’s fixed proper, so the controller can’t slip off the cat while playing. Also care about the lanyard of the controller. It should be fixed with the rubber band as well, so it cannot get stuck with something.
<br></li><li> Place the plush toy (with the controller on its back) on the ground in the middle of your play area. <br></li><li> Turn off the second (other) Vive Controller (by holding its steam button 15 seconds). <br></li><li> Start the game.
<strong>Playing the game</strong>
<li> Once the game has launched, you’ll see Konrad sitting in the middle of the play area.
<br></li><li> Carefully (!) lift the kitten and place it on the “calibrate” marker to calibrate the ground. The marker will turn green after calibration. <br></li><li> Then place the kitten on the Warp Zone marker to go to the area selection. <br></li><li> For the first play, only one area (the house) is available. So place the cat on this area marker to go inside the house. Other areas will be unlocked when fulfilling the cat’s needs. <br></li><li> Place the cat on the ground at one of the objects. The cat will interact with the object. While interacting, you’ll see the progression bar inside the wish-icon changing. After Konrad is done, the wish-icon disappears. <br></li><li> After a need is fulfilled, small hearts will appear. Catch them by moving Konrad towards them. Each heart will increase Konrad’s affinity towards you. <br></li><li> Some wishes will trigger minigames. When playing a minigame (like the mouse-hunting), hold Konrad in both hands so he looks away from you. Move him around so he can catch the targets. He will automatically grab after the target, as soon as he is near one. <br></li><li> Fulfill Konrad’s needs to unlock other objects, minigames and areas. <br></li><li> Konrad has 12 needs every day. Be sure to look after him the next day again!
<li> 3 areas to visit (house, forest, beach)
<br></li><li> 12 objects to play with (unlocked step by step) <br></li><li> 3 Minigames <br></li><li> Warp Zone Area <br></li><li> Settings area (including short introduction and calibration)
<strong>Early access planned progression</strong>
<li> Tuning the experience to be a perfect seamless blend of reality and virtuality
<br></li><li> Adding new objects and areas (currently planned at least 5 areas with 20 objects and 5 minigames in total) <br></li><li> Adding the option to have multiple cats with different personalities. <br></li><li> Stabilizing & Bugfixing
<li> An HTC Vive
<br></li><li> At least 1.5 meters x 2.0 meters room space <br></li><li> Also it is strongly suggested to have a plush toy with a length of 12 inch (30 cm) or larger.
