I’d like to announce today that I-Game-Art will be attempting to pave the way for virtual reality in gaming by supporting and developing for the Oculus Rift head mounted display.
For those of you who are unaware of what the Oculus Rift is (hard to believe anyone can be out of the loop with all the press flying about), I’ll first describe it as the first of it’s kind, lightweight, fully immersive virtual reality headset designed specifically for video gaming. What sets the Rift apart from the current hmd’s on the market today are a few things, from the diagonal viewing angle so immense that it covers your entire field of view, ultra low latency motion tracking, and that the retail version will cost up to $500. What this means for gaming enthusiasts is that as soon as you put on the headset and boot up your game, it feels like you are transported to a new world, like booting up into the matrix without all that crazy brain surgery.
So with the advent of a whole new way to experience 3d video gaming, you can bet you’ll be seeing I-Game-Art on the frontlines along with Id Software, Epic Games, Valve, and more!
