There have been a few endless runner videogames to support virtual reality (VR) technology throughout 2014, although perhaps not as many as one might think given the genre’s popularity on mobile platforms. A new entry in the genre arrives this week however in the form of Desert Traffic Racer Motor from indie developer Patrick König. The title is currently available to download on the official Oculus VR Share Beta for free.
Desert Traffic Racer Motor is both a first and third-person racing experience in which players race a motorbike down a highway as fast as possible, trying to avoid heavy traffic as they go. Remaining lives and distance travelled are shown to one side of the screen. Should the player crash then their avatar will be flung forward, making often painful but amusing collisions.
The title is currently available on PC, with no word on possible Mac or Linux versions. It features full support for the Oculus Rift’s second development kit (DK2). The title is listed as a full experience, so likely won’t see any content updates in the future. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all applications of the Oculus Rift, reporting back with any further updates on them.
