We’ve seen several remote control (RC) experiences come to virtual reality (VR) in recent months. Including, amongst other things applications involving planes, trains – and yes, automobiles. We’ve even had an application where you race modified drones. Today’s app however from the Oculus VR content sharing platform is more of the traditional RC experience.
RC Playground has you control an RC truck through a number of outlandish locations, all the while gaining speed, doing tricks, crazy stunt using the ramps, features and physics objects and trying to avoid (or not) the other vehicles racing around. Developed by Rod Ferguson and published by Binary Playground, the videogame also features free-roaming mode, checkpoint-style races, mini-games and will also feature in the full version online leaderboards. The demo is compatible with both the DK1 and DK2 Oculus Rift and game footage can be seen below.
