Virtual reality (VR) developers have leapt on the chance to create calm, soothing experiences for head-mounted displays (HMD). nDreams is currently planning one such experience in Perfect Beach for Samsung’s Gear VR, while Cubicle Ninja continues to work on expanding the promising Oculus Rift title, Guided Meditation. This week sees the reveal of another such experience in Celestial Chants, which Oculus Rift owners can sample now.
Unlike the aforementioned titles, Celestial Chants doesn’t place its users in a peaceful environment but instead shows them bright, relaxing imagery as the title plays music from composer Craig Pruess. It also features the vocals of a singer named Anada, who chants 108 ‘scared sounds’ that that guide the viewer through a soothing experience. No input is necessary; viewers can simply sit back and enjoy this unique and peaceful title.
Celestial Chants is currently available through the official Oculus VR Share Beta on PC for free. There’s no word on support for Mac and Linux, although the title does support the second development kit (DK2) version of the Oculus Rift. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all applications of VR, reporting back with all of the latest updates on them.
