I’ve just released version 1.2 of my Virtual Reality experience, The Caretaker; which sees you taking on the role of the new caretaker at an isolated hotel in the depths of winter. Inspired by The Shining, this experience was featured in The Independent and has racked up over 2000 downloads on Oculus share. I hope to expand the experience significantly in future!
This release builds on version 1.1 which added many audio and control improvements. 1.2 focuses on improved performance on lower end systems, some tweaks to presentation and bug fixes.
