Mischievous Room VR

by chinnie - Jam Entry

Mischievous Room VR is a virtual reality flying experience for HTC Vive.

With your flying magic, capture the Food Coma and Sugar Rush faeries in the giant library.

Instruction:
- Require the use of both Vive controller for moving.
- When standing still, move your arm in the direction of movement (up, down, forward, side, etc). Then Click trigger once to start moving. Only one trigger needed, not both.
- When flying, click trigger once to stop moving. This is good when you need to take a break, or when arms start getting sore.

Game load might take about 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Thank you for trying the game. Feedback is really appreciated :)

Awesome experiment in VR flight! I found myself flying around the room for several minutes after catching all the faeries, just to enjoy the controls.

At first, it was a bit unsettling... Rushing toward the walls made me feel uneasy, like I was going to fall. But once I got used to it, I loved it. I hope this flight concept is developed into a full game.

Great work!

Flying around a giant room was fun.

At first I though it might use the direction the controllers were pointed, but then I realized it must have used the relative position from the camera. Because flying up requires you to hold your arms above your head, it could be tiring after flying for a while.

The other thing I noticed was that I could fly close to the ground, but once I stopped it would push me up. This was especially jarring when I was standing near the contents of a treasure chest. If you stop flying anywhere near them the player character is launched backwards, which is probably something that should be avoided in VR.

Good work on this, and thanks for making it!
