We’re big fans of the Oculus Rift VR Headset since day 1. After our first test in the Rift it was clear – we need to make some tech demo to test out stuff with the Rift. As we have a strong background in racing games, it was obvious to take some of the race tech and assemble a racing test playground – called Rift Racer.
Rift Racer is a very early prototype and not a polished final build of a game – so please excuse the “drafty look”. Things might not work or break, so be warned. 🙂
What we want to test out is what kind of effects bring the highest immersion within the Rift. For example going at full speed up a ramp and shortly before you lift off, brake and steer hard left or right. That will start to rotate the car in a “fascinating” way when you look around within the car. Anyway, give it a spin yourself if you own a Rift. Enjoy!
Note: You can turn off and on the lightning with the L key in the game. If you have a low-end gfx card, this might help speeding up to 60 FPS.
