New Technology Walkers releases this innovative fitness game today on ViveportM
By: New Technology Walkers
The game had been announced by NTW's co-founder Antony "Skarredghost"
The game is innovative especially because of these reasons:
1. The training has been studied so that to train both the arms and the legs of the player;
2. It has been conceived from the ground up for a standalone VR headset, so it makes the player move all around his/her room and not only look at a front binary;
3. It features video-passthrough Mixed Reality, that lets the player see his/her surroundings. This way he/she can play in full safety, without risk punching walls and displays.
"We're proud of having been able to release this game, that to our knowledge is the first mixed reality game on a VR headset on the market." - says Massimiliano Ariani, game designer and co-founder of New Technology Walkers – "Being at the cutting edge of the technology has required a considerable effort on the game and level design stage, because there was no game we could copy from. It needed a lot of fantasy and experimentation"
"It is the happy ending of a long ride" – continues Antony Vitillo, co-founder and developer of NTW - "3 years ago me and Max launched the first HitMotion, that was the first full body VR game, that used a proprietary system employing Kinects and VR headsets. Now we are innovating again, with another own-made software solution that transforms a VR headset into an AR/MR one. We really want to thank HTC for having believed in this innovative solution."
The game has been released in Early Access so that to let the community play it and suggest how to improve it in its next iterations.
While the studio believes that the Vive Focus Plus is the best device to play this game with, it will be probably ported to other platforms in 2020.
