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.
I'm surprised it took this long to appear on the Rift.
Going to try this tomorrow 😄
Got a game in development or a cool piece of VR tech you want to show off? We are looking for demos, trailers and all things VR. Just send us a mail and we would be more than happy to feature it on our site.
Many of my solutions to the engineering, like parenting the player while on the flying pods, with a parenting script and a animated "seatbelt" cube is not pro work, but works for the demo. The extreamly crappy animated Dactyl is shootable (soundFX) and quite hard to hit.
If anyone with skills like to help me out geting this into multiplayer and more like the original. send me a mail! 🙂
