Virtual Reality is a burgeoning technology in the field of gaming. And, just as developers are becoming more and more comfortable with the medium, the technology continues to keep pace with the kind of experiences gamers want to have.
Wilson's Heart, the recent release of game studio Twisted Pixel, showcases the unique storytelling ability of virtual reality. Take a look at UploadVR's glowing review for the new game. Beware, the video does disclaim that it may spoil some minor story elements.
In the game, you play as Wilson, an older gentleman trapped in a sinister hospital. Joe Durbin of UploadVR describes the experience as "wickedly enjoyable." He lauds the excellent visuals and intricate storytelling, which is aided by the voice acting of some of the biggest names in show business, like Alfred Molina (Spiderman 2), Rosario Dawson (Marvel's The Defenders), and even Peter Weller of Robocop fame.
Virtual reality is not just restricted to be a futuristic toy, however. This new field of tech is also being used to enhance films, train better doctors, and help mothers relax while giving birth.
Even the most advanced technologies are moving forward with the help of gaming. Developers are reaching out to popular games, like Super Smash Bros., to help train artificial intelligence.
