Plenty of popular TV shows have already seen virtual reality (VR) adaptions. Earlier in the year a virtual recreation of Jerry Seinfeld‘s apartment was released online and more recently an expansive recreation of South Park was launched, both of which could be viewed with the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). This week sees another on of these experiences launch, this time based on popular US cartoon, Family Guy.
Developed by RWHTL, Family Guy: The Griffin House lets players tour Peter, Louis, Chris, Meg, Stewie and Brain’s home using the Oculus Rift. The developer has created every room in the house to explore save for the basement, though this may be added later down the line. It’s even possible to walk outside and journey down Spooner Street as seen in the show. The attention to detail within the experience is certainly impressive with the TV even showing one of the show’s news broadcasts.
Family Guy: The Griffin House is currently available to download for free on PC over on the official Oculus VR Share Beta. Possible Mac and Linux versions of the title are yet to be mentioned. It was designed in Google Sketchup and then developed using Unity 4. The experience is compatible with both the Oculus Rift’s first and second development kits (DK1 and DK2). VRFocus will continue to follow any and all applications of VR, reporting back with any further updates.
