Sometimes it’s hell trying to get to heaven. In a new app out on the WEARVR content platform that problem is taken entirely out of your hands and you may find the reverse is in the end true – it is sometimes heaven trying to get to hell.
A classic virtual reality (VR) rollercoaster experience, HellEvation, takes you a long climb up through the clouds eventually arriving at the pearly gates. Unfortunately it seems that your name isn’t on the list with Saint Peter and you are subsequently sent plummeting down the track into fire, flame and eternal damnation all whilst listening to some appropriately heavy metal music. You can almost smell the brimstone.
Developed by Kaoris Game D3V using Unreal Engine 4, HellEvation is compatible with the Oculus Rift DK2 head-mounted display (HMD) and Windows.
You can see a video preview of the app below:
We’ll be back tomorrow on VRFocus for another look at what’s new to VR.
