For some people who live in the city, it can be hard to get out into nature, for various reasons. Time, money, distance, disability can all prevent people from seeking out trees and fresh air. Nature Treks VR brings the experience of nature to the user instead, and now has added native support for the 3dRudder foot motion controller.
Nature Treks VR is a non-competitive virtual reality (VR) experience that is designed to help users relax by using a combination of soothing audio audio and relaxing visuals of nature at its most beautiful to help ease stress in its users.
The addition of 3dRudder support allows users to simulate ‘running’ using the 3dRudder foot-mouse controls to run alongside wild animals or across wide sandy beaches. The 3dRudder compatibility has been integrated in such a way that the user doesn’t need to do any configuration, all settings are handled directly by the Nature Treks VR software.
There are over 300 locations available, and the user can choose the weather and time of day for their preferred form of experience. So, if the user wants to see sunrise in a desert, that is entirely possible. Users can also choose their preferred locomotion method, whether that involves using the 3dRudder motion control, teleportation, arm swinging or free movement.
Nature Treks VR is available for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift through Steam at a price of £7.99 (GBP). A video showing the title controlled with the 3dRudder is available to view below.
