Experienced on the Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality

This is a 26 minute, mostly cinematic experience with some very basic interactions, running on the Unreal Engine. It is unpleasant visually and audibly, at times. It is artistic, experimental, and just plain weird. I think it may be autobiographical from the dev and it certainly feels at times as though he is talking to himself mostly and then sometimes at you.

This was pretty wild to me when I played it back in the day on Viveport. I think it had a different name. It has a unique art style with very high contrast and funky pixelation and color grading. I don’t know what those words mean. I don’t really understand the theme, something about game development. Wolfenstein 3d is name dropped once, and is likely the most memorable part of the experience. I liked the last scene on the beach where the gummy bears down by the water look at you. You might also notice a certain review blurb down on the steam store page. That’s me! What happened was I uploaded the viveport video, and the developer was like ‘hey can you please remove it’, and I demurred. Now I understand that I was in the wrong, and should have complied with their polite request. Other VR developers (3-4 at least) have clipped my youtube videos and I’ve gotten strikes just because I had the temerity to say that their game sucks, or sometimes that the game is good!

! To that end, fuck Yur.fit, fuck Claude Monet, The Water Lily Obsession, fuck Djinni and Thaco 35 dollar endless tutorial experience, Fuck Trauma Simulator, etc. It’s like Quantum phsics where certain VR experiences dissappear when byteframe looks at them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVdBevEpJ-c

As of end May 2020, this visit to the farm is really quaint and small children will love it, although the game still requires a lot of work as it’s clunky and a bit ‘raw’, hard to pick up stuff (we have the Valve Index VR), and heavy on the GPU (lots of grey outs after a bit of play). My 6-year-old daughter got frustrated with it (she couldn’t feed the horse with the apple and tried for hours), but for £2.09, we’re not complaining. It has lots of potential and I hope the game developers continue to work on making this better over time.
