An indie developer has created and released a new virtual reality (VR) Unreal Engine 4 demo that takes players on a miniature rollercoaster ride across a virtual living room. The experience can be downloaded for free over on the official Oculus VR forums and can only be played with an Oculus Rift VR headset. Footage from the demo, showing a complete run of the track, can be seen below.
The demo was made to celebrate the release of Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4. It shrinks a rollercoaster track down to fit into the space of a living room, running the entire width of the area and weaving in and out of sofas, lampshades and books. The developer, going by the forum username of Teddy0k, is looking for help with the experience’s Geometery Shders, encouraging players to download both the regular version of the title and one with Geometry Shaders enabled and offer feedback on visual errors.
This isn’t the first VR Unreal Engine 4 demo. Last week saw the release of a virtual recreation of the bridge on Star Trek Voyager‘s USS Voyager using the engine. In fact, some developers including XING: The Land Beyond team White Lotus Interactive, have already announced a full transition of their titles to Unreal Engine 4. VRFocus will continue to follow all the latest on the engine and VR in general and bring it to you.
