Indie developer Dejobann Games has long been a supporter for virtual reality (VR) technology with its unique skydiving videogame, AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!!, which was first released in 2009. On PC the title features support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). This month sees the team launch a new version of the mobile edition of the title, specifically designed for use with the Google Cardboard smartphone-based HMD with the help of another studio named Alchemy Labs. The new app is appropriately titled Caaaaardboard!.
In Caaaaardboard! players find themselves in an alternate universe, diving off of floating buildings in a very different interpretation of Boston, Massachusetts. As players fall they will perform stunts by weaving between buildings and tight gaps and daring to get closer and closer to obstacles and more. Spectators will also join players as they fall and it’s even possible to use spray paint to tag government buildings for extra points.
Caaaaardboard! is available now on the Android operating system (OS) for £1.26 GBP. It’s one of the many VR experiences now listed in the new Cardboard-dedicated area of the Google Play Store. Cardboard itself recently saw a significant update following news that over 500,000 units have been used worldwide. For those interested in the PC version, full support for the Oculus Rift’s second development kit (DK2) was added earlier on in the year. VRFocus will continue to follow VR videogames across all platforms, bringing you the latest on them.
