Polygon Nightmare - Old School VR

Level 5
Hi. im Swedish guy with early dreams of VR since i first tried the "Virtuality" arcade machine "Nightmare" later called "Dactyl Nightmare". My goal is to bring my childhood dream back from the dead, for the historic value and because it was a lot of peoples first VR experience!

I have gain the original Programer and graphic designers blessing to recreate the game. but have failed to reach the actual owner of the Game.

The game will be Free of charge and should NOT be redistributed without my knowledge.



Everything is built from scratch and is measured by eye sight from this lone clip!
all 3D work is made in sketchup and all sound effects are taken from the original videoclip.

Great job. Got to play today. Brings back memories. Now you just have to include a 10 lb sand bag to strap to the Rift to simulate how heavy the old HMD was.

Managed to play it today finally. Really cool man. I love the retro 3D style.

Well done.

Tried it last night. Jeez, the limited FOV emulation is awful! Seems about right from what I remember, though. Makes you appreciate what we have now with the Rift, despite the complaints from some people about its "crappy" FOV.
