Kayak VR: Mirage - never has VR kayaking looked so good! Native Oculus drivers are supported!

Might be more of a kayaking simulator and looks jaw-droppingly good:

 

 

This looks like one of my favorite kind of apps - where you try to recreate the real thing as good as you can with current gpus in VR. The app/game/sim isn't out before March 2022, and you can expect system requirements to be extremely high - right now devs expect:

 

RECOMMENDED:

  • OS: Windows 10
  • Processor: Ryzen 3600 / Intel i7 9600K
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia Geforce 2080
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 10 GB available space

DLSS will be supported for RTX gpus, thus this is truly high-end PCVR. More info here:

Note that The Grand Canyon VR Experience has gotten mixed ratings, but I'm quite fond of that app. It looks great - and at least for the CV1 ss 2.0 using Ultra settings, you may need at least a 2080 (Ti) for solid 90 fps in the Grand Canyon app. Some shots:

Yeah you'll definitely need a decent PC for this game. The system requirements for Kayak VR are listed on Steam, and the PC requirements for Quest Link can be found here!

After searching for quite some time I finally found the dolphins! After I found them, they followed my kayak for quite some time, it was a great experience.

There were like 5-6 dolphins. Sure this is VR, but it felt quite real to me 🙂 Btw, also got a close encounter with a snake in Australia:

Kayak VR is more a sim than a game - and as a sim, it's simply the best kayak sim in VR.

So cool!!! I love going through these threads and seeing more pictures of what is within a game!

This is so great on Quest 3 and Quest Pro using Remote Desktop, streaming it via PCVR (Steam VR)

Why use Remote Desktop instead of Air Link?  Just asking because I haven't tried Remote Desktop yet,  Thanks mate.

i9 13900K water cooled, RTX4090, Z790 MB w/wifi6e, 32Gb 6400 ram, 2x2TB SSD, 1000W PSU, Win 11, QPro, Q3, w/Link and Air Link, Vive Pro1 with Etsy lens mod and Index Controllers

Maybe simply because i had it for a long time and it works great with Steam VR, Rift titles , Videos & Movies, Windows and Mac and it has a ton of options to tweek if you want to do that 😉

Don’t remember why i dropped AirLink….

I know I'm a couple of years behind but just bought this and wow, it's incredible.  I've seem to be buying the great-looking games recently because of the Quest 3 and new network set-up I have knowing that Link won't let me down.

Make sure you go on the Australia course - there's a Christmas special.

Big PC, all the headsets, now using Quest 3

Ah, I was 4 weeks late - hadn't looked at the recent posts lol

This really is a magical little course.

A new level just arrived as DLC, and it's totally awesome - the biggest level/location in the game so far:
