Oculus Rift DK2: Rift Away's Cyber Space
Watch as a person who doesn't like heights or crazy amusement park rides experiences Rift Away's Cyber Space demo for the first time. Warning: Lots and lots of cussing.
Here are some impressions I wrote on NeoGAF afterward:
As someone who isn't into crazy amusement park rides, that thing is terrifying. I'm not a fan of heights, and the demo gave me the same feelings I get on the rare occasions I have ridden a roller coaster or gone on something that shoots me up into the air. Admittedly I have many more demos to try, but Cyber Space is the most convincing one I've played yet. It also lets you launch yourself from the ride at anytime, in which you can then examine your decapitated body afterward from the viewpoint of your head. I highly recommend everyone who has a DK2 check it out.
The cool thing about the demo is that it didn't give me motion sickness like DK1 demos would (though I never tried Cyber Space on the DK1), but it did make me feel very uneasy, but in the way you would expect on a ride like this. I was grasping the bottom of my chair as tightly as I could the entire time.
The same developer made Chilling Space, which I have read good things about. I think I will check that out next. I'm expecting a much more peaceful experience.
