A new virtual reality (VR) experience has launched on Gear VR, Oculus Rift and for Google Cardboard inviting users to journey to our neighbouring planet: Mars. Offering a short slideshow of the landscapes presented by the red planet, Mars is a Real Place is available to download via the Oculus Home app on Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 handsets now.
Mars is a Real Place offers 50 high-resolution images of Mars that have been hand-picked by the development team. Presented in a slideshow with original music, each image offers detailed information about the location and scale of the objects it features. Developed by DrashVR, the team behind the acclaimed Titans of Space, Mars is a Real Place does not require a bluetooth gamepad but is suggested to be a more enjoyable experience with headphones.
Mars is a Real Place is available now for Gear VR priced at $2.99 USD. An Oculus Rift version can be downloaded for $2.49 via itch.io and the Google Cardboard release costs £1.61 GBP on the Google Play store. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest releases from DrashVR.
