Independent developer The Arcade Man has built from scratch a Tron:Legacy Light Cycle and first-person driving game to play with an Oculus Rift - video embedded below:
The evolution of tecnology allowed us to have amazing experiences. How many of us dreamed of being inside a game, this is a fantasy in the mind of all the nerdiest geeks.
Thanks to an amazing little device that allows us to be “inside a game” and the project I’ve developed in the last month, I think I can say that we are in a very good way to materialize a great part of Kevin Flynn’s dream…
I present you the RiftCycles Project.
This is a stunning and unique arcade prototype that combines the Oculus Rift with a Light Cycles simulator that I built from scratch.
The game was developed (using Unity) by the portuguese startup Overflow Interactiveand it’s a game based on the Light Cycle Battle from the Tron universe and fully compatible with the Oculus Rift.
