This video goes to show just how powerful virtual reality can be if it’s implemented properly. I can’t wait to get my hands on the consumer Oculus Rift to have a go with it myself. Losing your mind over how incredible something is – that’s the reason I get so excited for technology.
IndieBox Review: Evoland
A fresh take on a stagnating genre.
I hate to say it but I’ve felt a lack of innovative indie games being released recently, there have been some, don’t get me wrong, but none of them have properly caught my attention – unlike the ideas and premise behind the latest kid on the block: Evoland. On the surface Evoland appears to be just another adventure/RPG type game. Yet in a way, it’s the work of years and years and years of development (even though its own development cycle took no longer than 4 months).
Evening Techniquenchers! I’m Rob, a new contributor to this blog bringing you some of the best indie games I come across from the World Wide Web.
Generally, the games I cover will be by small developers, students and institutions. Some new, some old, some bad, some good and best of all many will be free to play!
So without further ado… I present to you The Week #1 Roundup!
The Oculus Rift is a next gen virtual reality headset that once again started as a project on Kickstarter. Perhaps the most exciting aspect of this project is its funding from Valve, who are working their butts off to get us some Oculus Ready games. Currently Team Fortress 2 is being updated with a Free VR Mode specifically designed for the Rift. With a company as experienced as Valve behind you it’s hard to imagine that the Oculus Rift wouldn’t be awesome. We could start seeing some incredible immersive action (Portal 3 VR anybody?) in an affordable headset.
