Streets of Rift

by wkerslake - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You have 10 seconds to walk across the street without getting hit by a car. Larger streets have a pickup to give you an extra 10 seconds if you make it half-way. 28 levels if you can make it.

-Designed to be used with Oculus Rift
-You can play without using the mouse to look left/right but you still have the double screen, and can't look up/down.

Video of gameplay:

Wish I had a rift to try it out! Awesome work making an OR game though.

Went to lvl 12 and stopped, seemed to start repeating.
Don't have an Oculus but still pretty cool. I would love to get one though.
Would be nice if the intersection or cars had a littel more variety.

Nighttime was nnice. What about a sunset/morning where sun-glare is in eyes looking one way? Who knows, still pretty cool concept

This is pretty damn cool, I got to level 11 before I gave up. Really makes me wonder what a first person driving game would feel like with the rift, it definitely simulates crossing the street pretty well :P.

@Namrog the levels repeat on a cycle of 4, but each time the cars are faster and with less space between them. So it gets harder, but yes could use more variety.

Clever use of the rift, I like it! I also like how the levels progress (night driving, parked truck in the way). I wanted to see what else you had done, but I got a bit dizzy by level 11 :(.

Was fun enough without one though.

Nice concept. I don't have a rift but tried it. At first I was like, how the heck am I supposed to look around? But then,. the head tracking of course. I am curious how this would be with the rift.

You can look left/right with a mouse, but it's obviously not the same, experience.

Real life frogger :-) I like the simple untextured look. Only issue I had was that I was looking away from the sidewalk the first time I crossed the screen, so I didn't know to press space to go to the next level. Thanks

I love the idea of using the rift. Even without it the game was pretty fun. you should have an expansion- Streets of Rift: J-Walker!

This is genius.

At first I didn't realize I could use the mouse to look around, so I just walked of and got squashed like a tomato. IT WAS VERY FUNNY!

I think this concept is great, must work great with a Rift!

A honking soudn effect would be cool!

Very nice job here :)

Funny game ! But it's weird without a rift but it gives a style to the game :D Good job !

I enjoyed that even without a rift, it was quite a shock to get run over when your back's turned!

Aug 30, 2013 @ 5:40pm

I don't have a Rift, but it still felt very cool. I could see this being a very fun Rift game taken to polish stages with art, sounds, etc. Could be very immersive. FPS Frogger :) Great 48hr effort and +++ points for Rift support.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
