Positron - Arcade Tron-like Game

Postby MartinCaine » Sat May 18, 2013 11:21 am

Thought I might as well start a thread here which I'll update with my progress.

My game Positron is a 3D arcade racing/puzzle game which pretty much everyone likens to Tron (which of course was the inspiration for the game):



This latest trailer shows a few new camera modes I just added and the first person camera view specifically for trying with the Rift. I've only had my Rift for six days though and I don't feel comfortable enough yet to even try Positron with it!

In the next few days I plan to try it out (with a nice slow bike and an easy level) and I plan to post a demo which I'll link here for others to try out :)

Looks awesome. Tron definitely captures the essence of the true VR experience.

First-person looks pretty intense! I bet it would have a different/easier feel with head tracking though.

Looking forward to it :) Proton Pulse has cool graphics for the current hardware, I'm interested in seeing how this translates to the Rift.

I'm working on it right now. Plan to put up a demo with a few levels for Rift testing by the end of the week :)
