Update: Dance in Virtual Reality with Holodance
Earlier this year at the Shayla Games VR Jam in Copenhagen, Denmark, Narayana Games came up with the idea of a virtual reality (VR) videogame that encouraged users to dance by getting players to hit oncoming objects. Now Narayana Games have progressed the title and it is called Holodance.
Holodance is a collaborative multiplayer VR experience that has players hitting orbs that fly towards them at different heights and speeds in time with the music. All the music is composed and produced specifically for this VR experience using binaural audio and the levels are designed to match the sound to give a spatial, rhythmic, audio-visual experience.
Narayana Games have developed Holodance to work with all the major head-mounted displays (HMD) including the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus units. The team are currently using an Oculus Rift DK2 with a Razor Hydra for the development and prototyping of the software.
No release date has yet been given for Holodance, but VRFocus will be following all the latest announcements from Narayana Games as the launch of the HMD’s draws closer.
Update: Since the publication of this article Narayana Games has been in contact with VRFocus to verify that another team at Shayla Games VR Jam created a title called ‘E-motion‘, that inspired Holodance.
