Half-Life, Metal Gear Solid, Mario and More Featured in Videogame VR Museum
Indie developer Thiago Alcantara has released a unique new virtual reality (VR) experience online that pays tribute to a large array of videogames. The experience, simply named Museum of Games, allows users to tour an expansive viewing gallery fashioned as a museum, including a huge amount of frame posters and scores of rotating character models. It’s free to download on PC over on the Oculus VR forums and is compatible with the Oculus Rift VR headset.
The recently-released experience is actually the second version of the project, which includes many more additions, including stands for arcade machines and in-game weapons and accessories. Hundreds of videogame franchises are represented, including the likes of Half-Life, Metal Gear Solid, Mario, Diablo. It even reaches out to tie-in experiences such as the Spider-Man franchise.
As the developer reveals, the character models for the experience were acquired from free websites. Most of them resemble models taken from recent experinences. A model for the Joker, for example, is taken from the Batman: Arkham series. The demo features no real interaction, but it’s extensive amount of displays should keep players busy for a good while. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all applications of VR and report back with that latest.
