Posted by Ars Technic on March 12, 2018 07:16:00 Virtual reality goggles have long been a staple of video game production, but this is the first time we’ve seen an Oculus Rift-powered VR game in action.
Brighthouse Games, a studio based in the Netherlands, has put out a virtual reality game called The Virtual Experience.
You control a virtual character named Jurgen, who uses a Brighthouse VR headset.
When you look around, you can use the head-mounted camera to view the environment around you.
The characters movement is limited to a few feet and their arms are limited to only one hand.
There’s no way to control them in-game, but you can do all of the actions in-engine with the virtual characters, such as shooting and jumping.
You can use Brighthouse headsets as a standalone device or with a pair of Oculus Rift controllers, and the game supports VR headset controllers, too.
The gameplay consists of a series of “games” that you can play in-house.
You’ll play a game that is a survival horror story where you’ll be trying to save your sister, who is also being attacked by a pack of dogs.
The game has a simple, but fun design: you use the virtual character’s camera to look around and try to find the missing girl, who will be running away.
The games can be played in any order.
When the game is over, you’ll return to the main menu and have to start over.
Brights game comes out later this month, so it’s not out yet.
