Today is the day! The HTC Vive is now shipping, and Fantastic Contraption is live on Steam. We’re so proud and lucky to be part of something so momentous – the first steps of the VR revolution. We’d like to congratulate all of the VR visionaries, brilliant hardware engineers, forward-thinking artists, game developers and enthusiasts who have inspired us and made this possible.
Valve’s new mixed-reality SteamVR trailer explains it perfectly: room scale VR is an immersive experience, a social experience. It’s weird and new and still rough around the edges, and it just might change your life the way it changed ours.
To celebrate, today we’re going to stream Vive games at twitch.tv/ColinNorthway. We’ll be doing it all day, or at least until Contraption support requests start coming in. We’ve moved our green screen to Roadhouse Interactive, but will continue our regular Contraption Stream on Thursdays at noon pst.
Join us now to celebrate Vive launch day!
