A VR Arena Shooter in a mythic cyberpunk world with motion-sickness free flight.
Project Icarus is a VR locomotion prototype intended to demonstrate tracking lean motion. The player is given control of a jetpack, which they can fly by throttling the controller and leaning in their direction of flight. This is done by dynamically estimating their lean origin, while still allowing for free movement, all while leveraging leaning to minimize motion sickness.
Project Icarus is still a work in progress and is developing from a proof of concept into a playable game reminiscent of classic arena shooters.
