Beat Zombie VR

by Ekanaut - Jam Entry

Zombies love going to the club and dancing as much as they love to brawl. Sometimes they love doing both at the same time and Beat Zombie VR lets you experience that first hand(s). Built to work with an Oculus DK2. Left/Right Mouse for attacks, Space bar to reset view. Or use an Xbox Controller's Left/Right Bumper

Great entry. Amazing art, style, music and animation. Do you have to punch to the beat of the music? I think you did, and that's a cool mechanic.

Very awesome to see someone else do an Oculus Game! Great job! You should make a web port so others can appreciate your hard work. Love the art and style.

I wish I had an Oculus :(
From what I could see, seems so much fun.

Great visuals but the gameplay is really odd. I could not figure out when I have to attack them, seemed rather random when I would hit. I have no Oculus so I can't tell how much that adds.

Without the oculus, you can't lean in to hit.

This is just.. SO 80s! I love it, everything about it. The art and style, the wacky gameplay, the insane idea... all of it. Very awesome!

One of the best I've played yet! My DK 2 and I thoroughly enjoyed smacking dancing zombies upside the head, even if I had no idea of what else to do :)

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
