    Existing VR games ?

    Published at 8:13   Category Game development, VR Applications  

    With the Oculus Rift which will be in the hands of game developpers before the end of the year, I think we will have a great next year :)

    So I thought I’d find videos of some of the VR games I’ve played. It would probably be worth making a list of all existing VR games, so if you have links for them, I’ll take that and make a page on the VRGeeks website!

    [Update: a more up to date list is here: http://www.vrgeeks.org/wiki/vr-games]

    In my definition of a VR game you at least need to have head tracking, so this rules out any Nintendo’s Virtual Boy or Sega VR games.

    What got me into the field was ZoneHunter. Being able to shoot around and look in a different direction was a founding experience of the teenage me.

    Then Atrium Experience was also a great experience:

    Of course all the VRGeeks games:

    I didn’t play this one but it seems fun:

    I don’t mean no shameless plug, but VR Angry Bot is quite nice:

    And finally Doom3 that I tested last week in the Oculus Rift:

    Then you also have Cave Unreal Tournament, CaveQ3, Panoramic Quake III, … There is also a nice list on the VRTifacts website but it’s not working for me..

    Please add ideas :)
