Woob – Tokyo Run now showing in Virtual Reality Wraparound Theatre via Oculus Rift Game Technolust

Technolust is a Virtual Reality game for Oculus Rift currently in development by Blair Renaud and Chris Abell of ‘Iris’ . Along with a handful of other VR games Technolust is regenerating interest in gaming for generations of jaded gamers bored with the constant recycle of military and historical shooters. The game doubled its kickstarter goal back in May and is currently in Beta available to all backers and those who pre-order.

On firing up the game you are transported into a detailed Bladerunner-esque world, which you are free to explore at your own pace. The finished game will also include a Mars colony, wastelands and other area’s and feature’s many worlds within worlds. There’s also a videogame arcade where you can interact with some of the machines and this is where you will find the Tokyo Run cabinet. Shown above being played by a random youtuber you get a rough idea of how that might feel …and what better mind-bending way to view the film!

Clips from Tokyo Run also crop up within the main game dotted around on monitors and billboards as seen below. You can also play the above video from the beginning to see more. (currently it start’s at the arcade)

Already Technolust is looking great and stands out among a myriad of other VR games in development and I’m really looking forward to experiencing the finished game. If you want to explore the Technolust Beta you will need a PC or Mac and Oculus Rift DK2. LINK

You probably need a healthy dose of midi-chlorians in your system to decipher it in this way but the visual assault is significantly more potent. More details in this post […]
