This is ADORABLE. I loved it. Your controller models were kind of messed up (buttons off-center and clipping into the model) but it didn't affect the game at all and I loved it.
A Shopping Trip to Eklan Tor
A downloadable game for Windows
Explore the clifftown of Eklan Tor, located in the Hidden Lands. A tourist town, Eklan Tor is one of the few places in the world of monsters where humans can be found. Your mission is to find objects that have been cleverly hidden inside buildings, behind trees, and inside containers. See if you can find em all!
This virtual reality game is actually a prototype I made for a larger game called Under a Juniper Sky. I wanted to see how complex a world I could make in VR without the framerate dying. Turns out, pretty darn complex! Not only that, I wanted to create something that allowed someone to really explore a miniature world. I spent so much time on it that I wanted to give people a chance to try it out themselves.
If you enjoy the game, I know you'll like Juniper Sky. It's the story of a girl going to visit her family, who happen to live in a world of monsters. She ends up touring the strange lands with her cousin in a traveling teacart, selling tea to the various creatures in the world. Be sure to check out my twitter and devblog to see how it's coming along!
Also if you know anyone you think might like to try this game, please tell them about it! Everyone keeps telling me that if I want to do well with my game, VR isn't that way to go since the audience is so small. But I really do love the stuff VR can do, how it can put you in a different world. Hopefully you feel the same way.
If you like the game or know someone with VR who might like it, please let them know about it! Also tweets with this page address would be majorly great.
By the way, I have a dev blog. Take a look, there's pictures!

I really enjoyed this! A nice, chill experience. The snippets of lore were intriguing and I'd definitely be interested in playing a longer version.
For any Rift users reading: this works fine with OpenComposite if you don't want to use SteamVR.
Really amazing.Could be for ar or vr.I hope it hits the market.Its a bust.
This is hands down one of the best uses of VR I've experienced. The concept could, and definitely should, be scaled and applied to so many different themes and worlds. I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes!
Fantastic experience, found everything but the neon sign... that was staring me straight in the face. A full game based on this concept would be amazing.
This is easily one of my favourite VR experiences I've had. There's an incredible amount of polish in the animations, interactions and visual style you've developed, and I can tell that probably took a lot of time and effort! I can't wait for the full game, it will be an instant buy from me :D
Thanks! I haven't gotten many responses about the game, so I'm really glad to hear you like it.
This is amazing! I've been waiting for something like this since I first tried VR. Incredibly excited for the full game.
How do you open the game? Its in a .rar file...
Which this game VERY much sparks my interest just I can't play it. Because it is a .rar file?
cant click play for PC
I'm just stuck on the start page can't click to play or anything
To the right you should see instructions. They're different between Vive and Rift, but basically they tell you the button to press to select things from a distance. Then point the controller at the Start Game button, then release the button. That should work, reply if it doesn't.
Looks AMAZING from the screenshots, but sadly I don't have a VR set.
If you'd develop this into a Windows version, I'd gladly feature it on my YT!
I've afraid there not a non-VR version of this game on the horizon. Maybe after Juniper Sky is done I might consider it, but that's a few years out.
any chance of a non-vr version?
