Virtual reality is back and this time, it’s probably going to hang around for awhile. Anyone who has had the opportunity to try out the Oculus Rift VR headset (or one of the several direct competitors rushing to beat it to the market) can attest to that. Forget about the VR fad of the ‘90s – this is the real deal. It’s almost terrifyingly immersive. And now, 20th Century Fox has announced plans to begin releasing films straight to VR headsets, signaling a future where you can watch movies on a simulated big screen from the quiet safety of your home.
If you even remotely follow the world of technology and video games, you've surely heard of the Oculus Rift, the virtual reality device that's poised to change the way people experience interactive media. Now, in a move that could be historical (or foolhardy), the indie science-fiction horror film 'Banshee Chapter' will be the first film available to watch on the Oculus.
Another alum of id Software has joined up at Oculus Rift. This time it is the designer of Rage who has made the leap into VR territory.
We love seeing indie games get a ton of love and support on Kickstarter, so we were glad to hear that Among the Sleep, Krillbite Studio's PC horror game that's played from the perspective of a two-year-old, successfully closed out its campaign this weekend. What's more is that they received $248,358, which is almost $50,000 more than their intended $200,000 goal, meaning that a slew of their stretch goals were achieved as well!
