Steam VR is taking GDC 2015 by storm with the HTC Vive VR Headset being demonstrated along with the dedicated, laser tracked controllers. One of the demo’s is a new, special version of Portal built for virtual reality. Here’s a video of it in action.
This video (presumably secretly filmed) shows a live demonstration the HTC Vive headset plus Steam VR controllers as the player makes his way through a short segment of the Aperture Science VR demo, opening doors and interacting with crazy looking gizmos. Just from a visual standpoint it looks impressive, and although it isn’t clear – we’re presuming this is built on the Source 2 game engine, if so it looks great.
Anyway, sit back and enjoy (for a few seconds). The team at GDC 2015 have tried the demo and will report back very soon on what they think of it. I can let you into a little secret though – it didn’t suck!
