We’ve been working on a game for the Oculus Rift for about half a year now, and decided that it’s time to give other people a look at it. The name of the game is “Black Island” and it’s basically a horror game, set on a tropical island. You have to solve riddles and evade enemies to be able to escape from the place.

We want to give you an early demo of our game to play and maybe get some feedback. In the demo, you can explore a small part of the island, in which there’s a small part of our gameplay already implemented. This is not the final gameplay, and also pretty rough. But it’s a good first impression. The main focus of the demo is about playing with the Oculus, but you can also play it without the headset.
So, here’s the download link on Skydrive: http://sdrv.ms/179PvMV
As Skydrive seems quite slow, and they disabled the Dropbox link due to heavy traffic, here's a torrent of the demo: http://sebastiantobler.com/blackisland_alphademo.torrent
We're seeding it, but if some more people could seed, that'd be awesome! We didn't expect quite so many downloads.
At the moment it’s Windows only. Playable with Mouse&Keyboard or Xbox Controller. Oculus Rift optional.
Explore, take your time. Don’t get caught by the evil beings.
If you don’t play on Oculus, turn it off in the Menu.
You can adjust brightness in the menu to fit your screen.
A little info about us: We’re a 3 people team (2/3 female) from Switzerland, who’ve been working on the game in our free time for about half a year.

We hope you have fun playing!

If you don't have enough time (or no Oculus) to play the game, Dasher made a pretty cool Playthrough video! It's totally worth a look!

Press "Y" on the Xbox Controller, or left click when the object is in the center of the screen. You're right, it certainly needs more help with these things in the finished version!
