Playing Genesis in Virtual Reality with Oculus

Post by Habiki » 24 Sep 2015 03:47

I was attending an event in AltSpaceVR ( http://www.altvr.com ) and thought I'd give playing Genesis in virtual reality a try. Sure enough, it worked!

Took a video here:

It's funny to me because it's one of the oldest multiplayer games being played inside one of the newest multiplayer games.

You can even play it in a virtual IMAX theater, sharing the view with other people in the room. I tried to take pictures at different distances from the avatar so you can get an idea of the scale of the screen:

I was using an Oculus Rift DK2. Thanks for building the web client to make this possible! Geek dream fulfilled.

I used Virtual Desktop with my Oculus DK2 to play Genesis yesterday. Very interesting indeed. :D

Awesome program.
Might and Glory flaming for changing dawn, ancient power revealed of an iron crown, clear and cold and shining so far and bright, crush the world in one clash of your binding light.

Yeah, Virtual Desktop is actually a very cool program. That would be the best way to play it in VR for now, I'd think. Later it should be more integrated into Windows 10.

Better to get an HTC Vive. They're coming out in a month.
