Psychobus: VR Lab Rats 0.1 [educational release]

MadisV
Level 2
Greetings everyone!

This is my first public software release ever, very exiting. I tried to recreate some classical psychological animal studies that I have come across in my psychology studies. What makes this experience "stand out" is perhaps the option to navigate around the game by actually jogging in place. What follows is a gameplay video and a copy-paste from the readme file. ALL comments are very appreciated!




DESCRIPTION
############################################################
This demo is meant as a short educational proof-of-concept experience in the realm of psychological research. You play as a lab rat taking part in different classical experiments. Beware of heights!

Produced by Psychobus, an Estonian start-up focusing on bringing psychological science closer to regular people. Alongside science shows and workshops we are working hard to get our VR dev corner up and running.

DIFFERENT VERSIONS:
############################################################
VR_Lab_Rats_seated - controls are traditional inputs like the keyboard or xbox360 gamepad.
VR_Lab_Rats_jogging - PLEASE TAKE EXTRA CARE TO ENSURE YOUR SAFETY BEFORE USING THIS VERSION.
Meant to be played while standing up. Forward movement happens by jogging in place. Steps are detected by the head movement captured by DK2's camera. The camera should be placed about 1-2 meters in front of the player on eye level. Camera is repositioned at the start of every level, just follow the on-screen instructions. Level transitions can be quite rough, so it's smart to slow down beforehand. It's also a good idea to hold on to something, have a friend to lean on or at least put a small carpet on the ground to feel your location in space. The creators take no resposibility for smashed equipment or faces!
