Ever since receiving my Oculus Rift this summer, I’ve enjoyed participating in a number of experiences. Whether passive experiences that behave like a movie an immersive film or games that put you in the center of the action, virtual reality is coming of age and there’s a lot to like about it.
I enjoy installing a number of different games and experiences, but I wasn’t prepared for what I would face when I installed The Climb.
Utilizing the brand new Oculus Touch hand controllers, The Climb simulates the thrills and vertigo of mountain climbing. And the experience is truly amazing!
What’s it like to hang by one hand from the top of a mountain? I’ll never know for real… I’m terrified of doing such a thing. But with this game I was able to put myself in the action and scale mountains without risk.
In this video I demonstrate the experience and you get to see what I am seeing through the Oculus goggles.
Hold on tight. It’s a long way down!
