Using the Oculus Rift!
Sharkferno is a frantic, fun third-person virtual reality experience for Oculus Rift located in a tropical paradise. You can play as a flying drone or as a human and switch your consciousness between them with the press of a button. Save the island dwellers by shooting futuristic weapons at flying sharks. Combine free movement with consciousness switching to get to where the action is for last-minute rescues. After the evil sharks have been vanquished, chill and soar around the tropical island.
Sharkferno is rated Intense for its free motion walking and flying, but for many people the third person perspective reduces motion sickness. Moderate and Comfortable options are also included. No real sharks are harmed in the making or playing of Sharkferno, just make-believe evil flying sharks. Vanquished sharks merely roll over and then disappear; there is no blood or gore on Sharkferno Island.
Sharkferno has been submitted to the Oculus Store, and we hope will be available there soon.
Sharkferno was built using the Flying Drone Toolkit and a more advance (unreleased) version of the NPC Populator, both listed below.
Add flying drones to your Unity game!
Version 2.0 is now VR-enabled for the Oculus CV1. Turn any Unity 3D environment into a VR drone experience. Use this as the basis of a VR game, or just have fun flying around in VR!
The Toolkit can continue to also be used for non-VR applications, as before.
The flying drones can patrol, follow Game Objects, or be controlled by the player.
The Flying Drone Toolkit includes 2 flying drone 3D models and extensible scripts for drone behavior.
Programming is not required. Drones can be added using prefabs. Many parameters can be adjusted in the Inspector. Or customize drone behavior by adding or modifying scripts. You can add your own 3D drone model by writing a short wrapper script. Get the Flying Drone Toolkit now from the Unity Asset Store!
