HTC Vive

I noticed the picture from the previous post was no longer showing up so i had to fix the link. I thought i might as well make a quick post while I’m at it.

I got to spend about 15 minutes demoing an HTC Vive yesterday and came very close to buying one.

I have to wait just a couple of months before i can though, so we can pay off a bit of our Japan holiday debt and then i can pull the trigger. I’ve been given permission by the wife too, so i’ll live to post about it!

If you haven’t tried the Vive i suggest you check it out. Its so far ahead of the rest its not funny. I left the demo without a hint of motion sickness, yet my Oculus DK1 left me feeling so sick, it got to the point where i couldn’t even look at it without feeling queasy. This is why I ended up selling it.

I’ll go into more details about it another day, but one thing i will say, its made me rethink quite a lot of aspects of the project.

  1. Please don’t rethink any aspects. Only a marginal percentage of players have any kind of VR headset and this fantastic project of yours already in the work forever and you missed a couple of milestones already since your first post on trescom.

    I can’t speak for others but I’d like to play Trespassing sooner than later, maybe right now if possible. πŸ™‚

    • The rethinking is in regards to performance and what needs to be done to hit 90fps per eye.

      Don’t be too worried about what I’m up to πŸ˜‰

    • Hahaha that’s so damn funny, your first 5 words were exactly what I thought when I read the original post. “No, please don’t rethink anything dear newoldmate, we just want to see that island soon” haaha I have to admit I’d love to see the island through VR and stuff, but I know I’m not getting any kind of VR device any time soon.

  2. Wow, being able to explore the island in VR one day would be incredible!

    • I know right.

      Even just playing the original game in VR would be pretty incredible.

  3. Hehe nice. But my main concern is that you’ll never be finished. I to play it so bad!

  4. Hey man, just wanna say a big thank you for what you are doing here! I join the ranks of those who are waiting eagerly for what you are bringing to us!

  5. Hey dude just wanted to say thanks for keeping this project going, you are a star, cant wait to see the finished thing! keep up the good work bro!


  6. I’d rather spend the money on the project, i.e. on assets tbh. VR is still just a fancy toy

  7. I have a Vive and a Rift. (Vive is the best) And to play a version of this game in VR would be jaw dropping.
