Hi, I my boss land me his Oculus Rift so I could get ready to do a conference about it at University.
When I started to download the demos, I wished someone would had made a Bowling game, but that wasn't the case, so I did one!
I had posted a video on YouTube last week and now a first playable prototype you can enjoy!
The game is designed to work with the Wii Remote (or any third party compatible), but you can play it with a keyboard as well and a controller (but I haven't exhaustingly tested that option).
Of course you need an Oculus Rift to play the game properly.
Go to the official website for the most recent download link: http://www.retroristic.com/
To play this demo you need a Windows PC or an Intel mac, with the oculus rift connected to the computer.
If you want to use the Wii remote to play (as I recommend!) You need to pair it on your computer at first and then you're gonna be able to use it in the game. Press 1+2 on the controller while you're in the game to connect it. If the controller doesn't respond, quit the game and start over, this might happen from time to time, but once the controller is connected, you can reset the game by pressing the (+) button, and the controller will stay connected.
Right now no menus has been completed, so you need to use ALT+F4 to exit
on Windows or CMD+Q
The game is fully functional using a Keyboard, PS3 Controller on OSX should work too and the Xbox 360 controller on Windows, but I will fully support theses options in future releases.
*Linux user won't be able to use the Wii Remote as UniWii is only available for OSX and Windows. If you really want a complete Linux version, you just have to rewrite the UniWii dll for Linux and make it available so I could integrate it otherwise consider the Linux version an extra. Let me know about your experience, since I don't have (or really want) Linux myself.
