Fans of virtual reality (VR) sci-fi racing titles have been well-served recently with Tammeka Games’ Radial-G, which released a demo for Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD) owners to experience. However the title failed to pass a Kickstarter earlier in the year and its status is currently uncertain. While players wait for more news, they may want to turn their attention to another racing experience recently launched for the Oculus Rift, Unpossible.
Unpossible is currently free to download on PC via the official Oculus VR Share Beta. The title is compatible with both the first and second development kit (DK1 and DK2) versions of the Oculus Rift. It is a first-person racing title in which players must dodge obstacles along a pipe-like race course that players have a full 360 degrees of control over. The course remains the same, requiring players to memorise its layout to keep running for as long as possible.
Developed by Acceleroto, Unpossible started life as a mobile title on both iOS and Android. The title is listed on Share as pre-release, suggesting that it could see a more complete launch in the future, though this is yet to be confirmed. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all applications of VR, reporting back with any further updates on the technology.
