When you enter the game...with the Oculus Rift
Entering the game has never been so easy as with the Oculus Rift, that’s for sure.
When you put on the HMD (Head-Mounted-Display) a new reality shows in front of you. Yes, you can easily realize it is not as the real world, but a virtual non-existent world, and in fact this is what makes the OR (Oculus Rift) so interesting. For the first time in entertainment history, human kind is about to deliver truly IMMERSIVE experiences that until now could only exist within our imaginations, and in some cases will even compete with their analogue real-life experiences.
At Lemon Team we’re pretty damn sure virtual reality is the future of digital entertainment. We’ve just started playing with the OR and showing it to as many people as possible, and the more we show it, the more we see the potential it contains 🙂
And today was the chance to show it to a wider audience than our family & friends. We went to the Awards Ceremony of GameJamUA (a 48 hours game development competition celebrated in Alicante) and more than 50 individuals did try the OR. After a short speech introducing attendees to virtual reality from a developer point of view, we mounted the OR for they to try by themselves and the feedback was amazingly positive, as it was totally expected 😛
That’s it for now. Stay tuned for more news regarding the Oculus Rift & Lemon Team!
