    Spike’s All Access Live at E3 2014 gives interview with creator and world premiere showing of Playful Corp’s new third person retro platformer played on the Oculus Rift. It will be exclusive to the Rift. Release date not yet announced.

  • Venture Beat addresses concerns of third-person perspective on a first-person device.

    “Virtual reality — I mean truly accurate, comfortable virtual reality — is the most important thing to happen to interactive entertainment in decades,” said Bettner. “I know it sounds like exaggeration, but it’s impossible to explain what this is like to someone who hasn’t experienced it for themselves. Your brain is convinced that you are somewhere else, that you are in another world. I have worked my entire career to get to this moment, to create something like this.”

    “Oculus is committed to bringing the best and most innovative content from developers large and small to our new platform,” Oculus VR head of worldwide publishing David De Martini said. “We are delighted with our new partnership with Playful.”
