Oculus Rift Volcano Mine Cart Video + GDC Play Announcement!

Oculus Mines of Agnirok Cart Ride

This week we have a special treat for all you Oculus folks out there!

Just sit down, relax, strap on that Oculus Rift and a nice pair of headphones - and be transported into a special sneak peak of The Mines of Agnirok!

GDC Play Booth 310

If any of you will be attending GDC this year, feel free to come by Booth PL310 in the GDC Play area to test out XING on either Oculus or on the PC. We'll be right next to the Business and Career Centers Wednesday March 19th-Friday March 21st.

We'd love to hear from you guys and see your faces!

Also, we have a few surprises in store for the people who come to our booth ;)

On another note, check out this cool banner that I made, which ended up being too large of a file size to use ><

Oculus VR HQ: Trying out the HD Oculus and Crystal Cove

This past week we were invited to the Oculus VR office for a meeting regarding XING: The Land Beyond!

They were wonderful hosts, and we got to play a little show and tell. Immediately when walking into the meeting room we noticed a sandbox with shovels and buckets just outside a glass door from the room - this was how we knew we were in good hands :)

Long story short, XING looked fantastic on the HD Oculus Prototype! Our meeting was with Aaron Davies, and he seemed very impressed with what we brought to demo.

Also, Crystal Cove was a beautiful experience!

So many degrees of freedom!

We are very excited to be working with such an amazing and fun-loving company!

Being fortunate enough to get a glimpse of the future of VR, I can't wait to see XING on the next prototype!
