Proton Pulse Rift is a game that fulfills the promise of virtual reality from the 1990s (we even created a 90s style ad recorded on VHS). You may have seen the early Alpha floating around the past few months :D
Utilizing the Oculus Rift, the game doesn't need a mouse or keyboard to play. All you need to do is look towards the direction you would like to go.

Each kickstarter contribution also gives you the Preview Beta (today!) to try out. Even if its $1, you get access to that.

On the tail end of the VHS generation there was a promise of VIRTUAL REALITY. Not the world as we know it, rendered in exquisite, high resolution detail. This was low-fi crunchy pixels and low-poly blue-and-red cyberscapes reminiscent of Tron, Lawnmower Man, and Reboot. Where the dream display of the future wasn't a 60 inch TV in the living room; but rather the VR headset. With the Oculus Rift, we plan on finally fulfilling that promise in our neo-retro head tracking VR block breaker, Proton Pulse RIFT!

We would love to hear what you have to say about this project.

One of the stretch goals I would love to get in is Leap Motion support

The game currently has
    48 Levels
    5 Boss Fights
    5 Ball Upgrades
    Full Screen Effects
    Enhanced Shaders
    Cinematics
    Improved Menu Navigation

Many of the levels are more dynamic than ever. Levels that move as you play. I keep the score and paddle at a fixed point so there is no motion sickness when the larger objects begin to move.

One of the boss fights is a forward moving rail event.

I'll back it, the price is right and its one of the most complete VR games so far. Its a bit limited for my personal tastes, but everyone who has tried it likes it - its very intuitive to control, and doesn't cause any nausea.

If I wished to use the game in an arcade or commercial setting, can I do so under this license, by simply buying a copy for each unit? Or would I need some sort of commercial license?

EDIT: one of the things I really like about this title is the excellent use of color. In the low resolution of the Rift, bright colours seem a much better design choice than muted shades. This is one of the things I dont like about Zombies on the Holodeck IMHO - the choice of black/white/grey makes the game look rather old fashioned. The first thing everyone I've tried ZOTH on says is 'why is it black and white?'.

Awesome. You're one of the most active VR people I know. I remember discussions back when I was taping TrackIR to my HMZ-T1 and such. The guys at Natural Motion had kittens when they saw that. I'm on a new account now, but I definitely am thankful for your contributions to the VR scene as a whole.

Also, love your blog. http://www.cybereality.com is very clean and full of great content.

Backed :D Proton Pulse is definitely one of the demos I've run the most when introducing new people to the Rift, it's always the first thing I've exposed them to, and many has been spellbound and will not stop unless I take the Rift off their faces :3 So yes, a very successful product even as an alpha! Easy to access, easy on the nausea ;) Lets see which stretch goals we can hit!
