Colonist A514 New on Oculus VR Share
Recently made available on Oculus VR Share is virtual reality (VR) title Colonist A514. The title is a seated experience intended to educate the player. It is compatible with the second iteration of the Oculus Rift (DK2) head-mounted display (HMD).
The title puts players in the role of a young teenage colonist who is on an outbound ship. He is held back to learn the origins of the human race in preparation for his unknown future. The title doesn’t involve a lot of motion but simply asks players to observe and learn from the experience.
The developer states the importance of bringing VR as a new immersive medium for education. This is a similar aim for Experiences Pack – Cartoon which aims to use VR as a medium for teachers as well. Though both have different aims, it appears to be a recurring role for VR to hold an important place in education.
