Birdman VR

Birdman VR is a (very rough) first person skateboard game for virtual reality. - Skate around the park and try out the obstacles. - The park has verts, fun boxes and pyramids. The game is not for the faint of heart. As you can imagine, skateboarding in VR can be pretty tough on the stomach. Especially when steering left and right (rotates view) and when going up the half pipe. It should also be noted that the physics of the skateboard and the steering are very very simple, rough, and could use A LOT of improvement. Overall the speed of the board is Especially the momentum of the skateboard (at the moment it brakes automatically). So when you stop pressing the controls, the skateboard essentially comes to a halt, rather than continuing to roll. This game is tested with an Oculus Rift DK2 + wireless Xbox One controller. Controls: Left thumb stick to move forward (up) and backward (down). Right thumb stick to steer left and right.
