Seattle-based company, VRStudios, has debuted its’ first multiplayer virtual reality game, Barking Irons, at the International Consumer VR Exhibition and Conference on May 14 in the Vancouver Convention Centre.
The company has developed a unique compact wireless headset, which they say allows for the user to move freely allow for an unencumbered experience. The games in a virtual reality experience are highly interactive and include athletic elements, which comes into play in this western shootout-themed attraction.
"The ability to physically move around a space with another player makes the experience feel much more natural and keeps you immersed in the game," said Jamie Kelly of VRcade, the company's gaming and entertainment-focused department.
"Now with Barking Irons, your physical actions are matched perfectly by the game and your athleticism is a core element to your level of success in the game," said Ivan Blaustein of VRstudios. "This also makes spectating a game much more like a sporting event than a video game."
