The lights are on
Big games like Team Fortress 2 and Half-Life 2 aren’t the only ones utilizing the Oculus Rift. IndieCade has announced that four games using the head-tracking peripheral have been added to the showcase.
Sound Self presents a stimulating world of lights and sounds that you must navigate through using your voice. The developers promise “one extremely intense hour” of play when the final product launches in 2014. You might want to keep a trash can nearby.
The Recital, created by Funkmasonry Industries, is a puzzle game that shares with players the experience of a pianist preparing for a performance.
Little is known about Irrational Exuberance, a “first-person mystery playground at the end of the world.” We’ll know more about Buffalo Vision’s game next week at E3.
Lastly, the goal of If A Tree Screams in the Forest is to survive a brief walk through, you guessed it, a forest. The developers’ use of the popular Doctor Who quote, “Whatever you do, don’t blink!” makes us think this isn't going a game for those who frighten easily.
IndieCade is showing off these four titles and much more at next week's E3. Check out Game Informer from June 11-13 for more coverage.
