VR in Teaching and Entertainment:

We would like to invite you to join us for a seminar on the latest developments in Immersive Interactive Virtual Reality. If you really want to start using the Oculus rift and Unity 3-D to create the next generation of video games and secure gainful employment (or be an independent game producer) for the next decade, then this is the ideal first step.

Paradox Research has been developing a Neural Stimulant Protocol called MERIDIA and we have gotten our hands on a piece of the code. It’s dark and mysterious and we are not quite sure what to make of it. Would you like to try it out?

MERIDIA features a visually based navigation system for VR that requires only one key. No more fishing for the mouse or trying to find those elusive WASD keys. No joystick, no problem! MERIDIA uses only the space bar and your sightline to navigate. It’s incredibly intuitive and immersive.

Doors of Silence
Doors of Silence is a horror experience for Oculus Rift with some gameplay elements. Explore the mysterious place where you are, search and interact, hide in the shadows and find a way to escape. The game has been created with Unreal Engine 4, using ultra-detailed static and animated models with  2K textures.

Fly like a bird, in Levitate, a flying game made for the Oculus Rift.
You embody a bird on a journey to resurrect a mystical planet by collecting energy shards to restore the eco-system.

The game takes places in a mystical planet, which survives on the astral energy from the core. The energy is supplied on the surface of the planet through naturally formed Runes. Flora and fauna rely on the astral energy to survive on this planet. But a humongous meteor strikes on the planet, breaking apart the balance in the eco-system. The astral energy in the runes has been dispersed and scattered throughout the planet as shards.
