Today I downloaded this new Free Experience:https://www.oculus.com/experiences/rift/1437254706307136/
So far I have only gone through the Star Wars section. I'm looking forward to the Marvel update, and soon I will go through the Disney-specific experiences.
If you haven't tried this yet, while the main menu screen is pretty awesome, the actual experiences themselves are simply 360 films, where the quality and scale may be less-than-desirable on a Rift. I think this type of experience is best for Mobile-VR.
What I did find rather fantastic was the behind-the-scenes footage of Rogue One. I think the App is worth the download just for that brief glimpse of being on a Star Wars film set.
But I decided to make this thread after going through the "Spy" experience, because even though the video quality (as experienced on the Rift) wasn't that great, I did love the way the Player is able to "click" to move on to the next film scene. A very simplistic concept, however, I immediately began to think of all the possibilities for adventure/puzzle games that center on interactive film.
I'm someone who began PC gaming in the early 90's, and "interactive movie" games were all the rage for awhile:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_interactive_movies
My first introduction to this genre was with: Dracula Unleashed
But there are far more popular cult classic titles such as:
Gabriel Knight (the Beast Within), Phatasmorgia, and The 11th Hour
And if you notice the timeline on the Wikipedia link I provided above, you can see that in the 90's the number of these games released was much, much larger than the number released post-2000. However, now with Virtual Reality there is a part of me hoping that this gaming genre can make a comeback. They were always a personal favorite (like that one shirt, pair of pants, or shoes you keep in the back of the closet because you refuse to throw it away); and I really look forward to VR Interactive Movie games becoming a valued edition to my VR Library.
If done correctly they can have truly epic potential for multiple genres, and give rise to a new form of story-telling and filming.
