Crescent Bay prototype showcased
The Crescent Bay prototype, a successor to the Oculus DK2, was showcased at CES 2015 with better controllers and display.
What started as an investigation into VR became a major project that expanded into a full game, with overwhelmingly positive reviews from technology outlets which enjoyed the peaceful search of awakening an ancient civilization.
While the game features challenges to overcome, at its heart is a meditative piece where people can just wander and observe the isolated world, enjoying serene sights and feeling a sense of presence.
Land’s End is a shining example of how virtual reality is not only an immersive way to play games, but a powerful storytelling medium.
