More than over 220 teams, comprising almost 1,000 individuals, submitted made-for-VR games to the Oculus Rift VR Jam, with 20 finalists announced today.
They are all competing for a $10,000 cash prize, a trip to demo their game at IndieCade Festival in October, and an opportunity to visit Oculus HQ. The games were all created in a matter of weeks and were graded by a panel of 30 judges.
Among the finalists' efforts are plenty of games that offer first-person perspective from unusual viewpoints, including that of a dragon, a private eye, a star-gazing dreamer and a backyard chicken.
