There are a number of different places virtual reality (VR) fans can download content from including Oculus Home and WEARVR. Now a new contender has recently launched an all-in-one VR download store to help users find and manage their videogames called RiftCat.
To begin using RiftCat users first need to download the RiftCat Client. After installation users can then select and download whichever titles they wish to use from the stores database of almost one hundred videogames. The client is free to download and use, and current content is free, although RiftCat does state some future titles may come with a charge. The software will also automatically update its database, ensuring users are playing the latest version of a developers videogame.
RiftCat also has a VR mode enabling users to control the application directly from their head-mounted display (HMD) without needing to remove the HMD.
Not only does RiftCat contain content for VR users to enjoy but the site also supports developers wishing to publish software. Studios can submit apps and videogames to RiftCat which will then be made available on the service. With built-in tools RiftCat will even help promote developers titles.
Currently RiftCat only supports the Oculus Rift HMD but the team intends to support further HMD’s in the future. As the HTC Vive is due to be launched towards the end of this year and the Oculus Rift in Q1 2016, supporting both would spread the services appeal.
VRFocus will continue to report any further updates to RiftCat as more announcements are made.
