Well, Mike ran in to problems getting ldjam.com working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

Manifest My

by irwatts - Compo Entry

You awaken as a partially assembled robot in a lab after hours.​ Find your way.

There are no enemies, only you, and a couple items to interact with. I had wanted to include a few more props and movement features, but I spent a little too much time spinning on a critical bug.

Tools:
Unreal Engine 4, Silo, Houdini, REAPER

Requires VR headset and motion controllers. Tested with Oculus Rift and Touch but it should work with Vive just the same.

Controls:
Motion Controller Trigger - Grab Objects

​The locomotion is very cool, with the 1:1 kind of dragging. Only negative about that is when you fall, the acceleration causes a bit of discomfort. The plugging-in-mechanics are very cool, and the implied story is interesting. I chose, of course, the path of the benevolent robot overlord.
The hand models are really good, and the overall atmosphere of the game is great. A good game, even if a bit short.

Tried it with the Vive, Unfortunately I'm floating above the scene: http://puu.sh/sNRHN/d35a75fd8c.jpg Didn't rate because of that.

Tried with Vive, crashes about 10 seconds after starting - just freezes completely, had to end task. Tried it a few times, no go.

Tried on Vive, worked for me. Though I initially thought it wasn't working, as I thought I had no way to move around until I read the comments, kind of clever movement idea, but I think considering how different it is from the norm' you'd be better conveying it to the player that they have no legs?
