Finally had some time with my Oculus Rift development kit over the last few weeks and I’ve been very impressed with the technology.
For those not in the know, the Oculus Rift is a Virtual Reality headset that tracks the player’s head movement while displaying 3D video games, pictures, or movies. It is extremely wild and definitely will mark the beginning of a VR resurgence.
Marist Game Society had our Spring 2013 Game Expo! Students showed off their projects made during the semester or year. Carrot Island debuted Thomas Edison, our HTML5 game discussed a few weeks ago. We finally have a functional first level. While not entirely complete, its a good test to gain some feedback from players.
Read on to see more behind the project, our experience during game design, and play the actual game!
