Palmer Luckey, Founder of Oculus VR

Ever since Gametrailers revealed their schedule and keen eyed Oculus Rift fans spotted Palmer Luckey’s name in the line up speculation became rife that the founder of Oculus would be revealing something brand new for the VR Headset. In fact, he introduced the admittedly awesome, but hardly brand new, Super Hot – the off-the-wall action shooter that fiddles with causality that recently hit Kickstarter for funding.

But, in true Palmer style, the incorrigible VR geek flipped out for the camera in what can only be politely called a physical mini explosion. Of course, gif monkeys everywhere sprang into action and the residents of subreddit /r/oculus were treated to another mesmerising looping clip of the event. Enjoy the full force below and check out the SuperHot Kickstarter here. We’re hoping to speak to Oculus at E3 tomorrow and will report what else they have to say thereafter.

Based in the UK, Paul has been immersed in interactive entertainment for the best part of 27 years and has followed advances in gaming with a passionate fervour. His obsession with graphical fidelity over the years has had him branded a ‘graphics whore’ (which he views as the highest compliment) more than once and he holds a particular candle for the dream of the ultimate immersive gaming experience. Having followed and been disappointed by the original VR explosion of the 90s, he then founded to follow the new and exciting prospect of the rebirth of VR in products like the Oculus Rift. Paul joined forces with Ben to help build the new Road to VR in preparation for what he sees as VR’s coming of age over the next few years.
  • It’s an interesting game idea with a not-great name. I don’t suppose I’ll be quoted on their Kickstarter page.
