Сomedic VR game “Wheelchair Simulator” – All profits go to charity!

We’ve just launched “Wheelchair Simulator VR” - a comedic VR game that dares players to traverse a city by pushing two wheels with their own hands. That’s not easy as the place is pretty much ignorant towards the wheelchair users. On their journey players will be accompanied by a sarcastic narrator who shares his own story, cracks jokes and comments on players successes and failings.

This narrator is Dmytro Schebetyuk who suffered a spinal injury seven years ago, but the incident hasn’t stopped him as he’s into performing extreme wheelchair stunts, hitchhiking around the world and he’s also participated in the paralympics.

Check our trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F61p2JocuAk

And amazing gameplay by Beautiful O.B https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2dh7QYuG7U&t=18s

And Oculus Store link: https://www.oculus.com/experiences/rift/1655593951188670/ 

It would be amazing to hear what you think!

    This looks like a pretty novel and smart use of VR... downloading now!

    Also, still had £6.01 store credit left from the Oculus' March debacle so you got it ;)


    Edit: hmmm, the game isn't getting passed an 'Unauthorized login to Oculus' message at startup. There's a small 'Hold down trigger to skip' message but doing so quits the game. I've restarted the PC and re-installed the game but no change.

    Any help would be appreciated.

     Thanks @ViraGames1, I've been away for a few days so just got to give this another try now and everything works great.


    Really like it, just played through some of the story mode... the roads had me feeling like I'm in Frogger! Very nervous sitting by the road waiting to pluck up courage to cross. I guess I'm looking forward to finding out what else is in store :#  Definitely a great idea and has a message that comes across in a surprisingly entertaining way.


    I recommend.

    Proceeds go to charity, you say?  Yeah, I'll throw some of my store credits at that, too!

    tbh I'm interesting how the wheelchair motion-control mechanics work anyways, so.. :wink:

    It's hard being the voice of reason when you're surrounded by unreasonable people.

    You may feel a little motion sickness at first, especially if you turn too quickly, as you obviously don't have the real-world feeling of turning... but I got used to it pretty quickly. The only thing I'd say is the in-game hands aren't quite in the position of your hands... they're a little further away. This may be deliberate as it means you don't have to reach down so far to grab the wheels but maybe it would have been better to have true hand positioning. Otherwise no complaints.

    And what's your game like ? Haven't seen it. Is yours for charity as well ?
    A PC with lots of gadgets inside and a thing to see in 3D that you put on your head.

    I would really buy this if I knew that the proceeds were all going to this charity.  Sorry but I can be a bit susceptible sometimes.  Maybe a donation directed to a known charity would be better?

    I've just looked at the reviews. I'm at a loss as to why some people rate a game 1 star just because it crashes on load. You can get a refund or contact support, so can you please stop rating games you haven't even played..

    I haven't rated a game on Oculus yet, is it possible to comment on a game without choosing a star taking? as in unrated. If not, it might be a good option to have.... an unrated (zero star) rating that doesn't affect the average.

    In this case the crashes were probably related to that early patch that was fixed pretty quickly.
