AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! For the Awesome (sometimes shortened to Aaaaa!) is truly one of the greatest titles for a video game ever conceived. And the first-person BASE jumping sim has also been pretty well received among PC gaming enthusiasts. So naturally, the next step was to marry first-person BASE jumping with the virtual reality possibilities of an Oculus Rift headset.
Developer Owlchemy Labs is currently working on the Oculus update for Aaaaa! and plans to make it available on Steam soon. How real does the Oculus Rift make the BASE jumping of AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!!? Very real:
Here at Owlchemy Labs HQ, we’ve engaged in numerous play-tests in our secret Owl Cave and we can easily say (with confidence) that this is one of the most absurdly amazing gaming experiences to date! The all-encompassing sense of free-fall is so intense, the feeling of blasting past buildings for points so real, our very own play-testers have been known to duck their heads, in real life, when large objects scream past their face.
A few screenshots of the Oculus Rift version of AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! can be found at the Owlchemy Labs’ official website.
