There have certainly been some ‘out there’ experiences for virtual reality (VR) technology so far. Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) owners have had the pleasure of kissing aliens while many still anticipate taking control of a bear. However A Night at the Roculus might top them all with its unusual brand of gameplay. Developed by Because Games this VR experience recently launched for all the try for free.
Because Games labels A Night at the Roculus as ‘the most immersive 90’s simulation experience available today’. This basically translates into a hilarious dance title in which players find themselves sitting in the back of a car listening to dance music. A set of instructions appear in front of players, teling them to perform a certain move with their heads such as nodding or shurgging from side to side. Both the driver and the passenger in the front seat also carry out these moves.
The player’s movements are tracked using the Oculus Rift’s second development kit (DK2) camera meaning this is one title that strictly won’t be compatible with the HMD’s first development kit (DK1). The title then keeps a score and a multiplayer based on the user’s current streak. All passengers in the car appear to have Oculus Rifts attached to their faces.
The full version of A Night at the Roculus is now available from the official Oculus VR Share Beta on both PC and Mac. VRFocus will continue to follow each and every VR supported title, bringing you the latest on them.
