    VR FPS : Atrium Experience

    Published at 12:24   Category Game, VR Applications

    Here’s a great video from Atrium Exprience, “one of the first FPS games in a CAVE-like display (SASCube)!”.

    It was made by Alexandre Bouchet and Lionel Dominjon from Clarte, using Virtools and the VR Pack.

    I played with it and I have to say it’s really impressive. The immersion sensation makes it a unique experience. Playing this kind of games is the reason why I work in VR :p

    3. [...] The guys that made Atrium, Alex Bouchet and Lionel Dominjon, are very cool guys, they gave us the sources of the first VR only FPS! Geoffrey modified it to use the VRNR, Virtools VR abstraction, so that the game is abstracted from the knowledge of the devices/display. Thus it can run on nearly any VR hardware, simply by changing a few configuration lines. We’re thinking about including that with the VR library, what do you think? [...]

    4. I just saw this video now.
      You must be kidding the FIRST ever FPS in a CAVE was
      CAVEQuake
      http://www.visbox.com/prajlich/caveQuake/

      We had it running and playing in 1999 !!!!!!
      In our Athens based CAVE (Foundation of the Hellenic World)
      http://www.fhw.gr
      running on an SGI ONYX 2 using CAVELib open to the public.
      VR FPS games are much older than you think…

    5. I’m aware of CaveQuake, and CaveUT and others.
      But these are ports of existing games.

      Atrium was specifically made for VR ! And the gameplay takes advantage of the immersion.

      I’m sure other VR Geeks have created games like that, probably even before Atrium, but I’ve never heard of them so if you have any pointer, I’d love it :)

    6. Where can I download Atrium? I would like to try it out with my VR rig. Are there any other VR games or software packages out there that are freely available?

    7. Hi,
      I’m trying to have that released soon if possible.
      I’m also trying to find other apps/games that we could enjoy with our vr kits :)
      Maybe Vizard also has some demos.
      cheers
