Earlier in the year VRFocus reported on the release of a surreal new virtual reality (VR) experience named Alien Makeout Simulator, first created in a 48-hour Boston Game Jam. Following its release the title, which uses the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD), went on to win Best Single Player Game at the Boston Festival of Indie Games in September 2014. Now the developer has released a new version of the videogame that supports the Oculus Rift’s second development kit (DK2).
This new build is in fact the one that was on display at the festival in Boston. DK2’s positional tracking support, which allows players to move their head around within an experience, is put to use as players lean into to kiss the many mouths on an alien, trying to satisfy the requirements of each one with different types of kisses before the time runs out. It may be one set of lips prefers a series of quick pecks while another requires a longer kiss.
The updated version of Alien Makeout Simulator also boasts new music and effects. The developer has even teased new ‘mechanics’, as well as a second alien partner to choose from. The experience can currently be downloaded over on the official Oculus VR Share beta for free on both PC and Mac. It even featured on Comedy Central’s @Midnight show recently. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all applications of VR, reporting back with all of the latest updates.
