This year we've added Leap Motion controller support, and will push out Razer Hydra support this week. I look forward to integrating the Oculus Rift with Torque 3D and seeing what our community comes up with once the developer kit is released. We have a few Kickstarter supporters in our ranks (including myself) and we can't wait to get started!
hey guys. Got my Rift Development Kit last week. Yay!!!! 🙂
So far tried a few demos, including Tuscany, Alone in the Rift and Dreadhalls (I am NOT playing this ever again. Almost soiled my pants after 3 minutes of gameplay). Really wanted to play minecraft with the rift mod, but this failed to install. After digging some forums I found that the mod is incompatible with the latest version of minecraft:(
In any case, I noticed that probably because the community is rather small there is a lack of resources about Rift and products for Rift. As a web-dev I though of knocking together a site for compiling a list of rift-compatible games/demos and other things, but instead of trying to list EVERYTHING, do more thorough research on each item, embed some videos, post reviews, hints etc. What anyone be interested in using this or wants to help or has something to say about it?
Hello, I'm from NA and I am optimistic about OR. I used to believe the idea of affordable quality VR was ahead of it's time, however the state of our current technology and this project has now made me a believer and I can't wait to see the rift in action.
Hi everyone! I just preordered the devkit recently after countless Youtube vids and articles. Being a big fan of works like The Matrix, Snow Crash, Ready Player One and just scifi stuff in general really made me decide that I want to be part of the VR movement. It would be wonderful to create experiences for everyone to enjoy, not to mention non-gaming applications that would be immensely.
I've made simple 2-d physics and card games as a hobby about 10 years ago, and now reviving my love for making games. Now with the added dimension of immersion and presence, I would say that I'm now both inspired and excited by the possibilities.
For the past weeks, I've been keeping myself up to speed with 3d game development platforms and have gotten myself into Unity. I've never seen such level of accessibility to creating games back when I was in college. I hope I'm not being over-optimistic but it looks like I'll be able to pull my ideas off, given that I pour in some good hard work.
I'm part-timing as a DJ/Producer as an ongoing passion. So if any of you needs some music / sound work in your projects, feel free to message me and I may be able to help out.
So this wraps up my rather lengthy introduction, and I hope I'll be able learn and experience VR with you guys 🙂
