Nice!!!

Will you make a non Razer Hydra requirement? Maybe binding the mouse buttons to an arm, so if pressed will follow the movement of it?

Right now we don't plan on releasing a demo with mouse or joystick control. This VR experience is really incomplete with the hydras or equivalent input. For the judges we submitted a mouse control version as required but the core of the game is designed around 1 to 1 hand input. Also be sure you have at least a GTX 660 Ti.

I like this! Very cool, I really enjoyed banging my sword and shield together, the sun rays cutting over the stadium are outstanding, the sense of size in the Colosseum is top notch. Is there anyway to implement impalement or disembowelment? A bit morbid I know but this was the only thing that I can think off to make the fighting just that little bit more visceral. Oh and maybe a head butt attack for when you've lost your limbs haha.

Kudos guys, really well done!

Morbid? Maybe a little but that is actually a feature (disembowelment) we planned on having 🙂 . We had to cut it due to time.
Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the feedback.

Ah... a pity. Does Wii control work as a replacement?

@OculusAsh

You can expect impalement, throwing of weapons, grabbing opponents, etc in future releases.

Of course positional tracking of the body for evading as an alternative to blocking would be great here, too. We need Sixsense's STEM system now! 🙂

Excellent :twisted:

Glad you guys are continuing to work on this, don't forget the Fascina & Iaculum, Arcus & Sagitta, etc maybe even chariots and ballista eventually:?:

Awesome work 😄

This was just awesome.
First thing to do when I got to the arena was:

Sorry I had to.

But this was great. The shield and sword worked well together and the sounds were great. Regular punchers began to be little boring but then the swordmen fights started. They were much better. You really had to use your shield while slashing. I didn't make it to the end, got my both arms slashed by the last enemy. Felt like the Black Knight from Monty Python just jumping around the enemy until he killed me. 😄

There was some drifting with the Rift, found myself facing 50° to the right after the fight. Slashing enemies feet didn't quite work with Hydras; if you tried to hit their knees the hydra started glitching.
Also isn't there any other way to place the hydra base? I'd like to show this to my friends but I don't want to thrust the base to their crotch. Besides my chair is pretty short so I had to keep the base in place with my legs or it might've fallen off.

But overall a very nice and polished experience!
