We reported on RiftAway’s venture into white knuckle fantasy ride simulator Cyber Space a little while ago and mused on it’s potential status as the ultimate in testing your VR Legs.

Now, RiftAway has released a new version of the demo which allows the player to eject from the virtual ride mid-air, flinging your ragdoll avatar 100s of feet from the ride whilst your peer on through your Oculus Rift.

Additionally, apparently RiftAway world scale has also been tweaked, bringing your 3D view of the ride’s terror into line with your brain’s expectations. Such an enhancement will surely only heighten the demo’s power to demonstrate just how willingly your mind can accept that you really are on this ride from hell.

You can grab the new version of the demo here, and check out more of RiftAway’s other Oculus Rift demos here.

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 RiftVR.com 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.
