Boss Monster VR

Boss Monster is getting the virtual reality treatment thanks to a partnership between AltspaceVR and Brotherwise Games. Fully compatible with Samsung Gear VR, Oculus DK2 or HTC Vive, the game will also be playable on the desktop without a VR headset.

The game has been available to play since yesterday, so head on over and give it a shot! I’ve tried it out with the desktop client, and have actually ordered a Google Cardboard headset to give it a shot with my phone.

Virtual Reality Dungeons & Dragons

A group of adventurers gather in an imagined tavern…

In this case, however, the adventurers are players rather than characters, and the tavern is a virtual environment developed by AltspaceVR for the purpose of playing Dungeons & Dragons.

The environment is more than just a virtual tabletop, though one of those is included. It’s a three-dimension computer-based game room modeled on the stereotypical fantasy tavern. In it, players meet remotely and can roll dice, consult rule books, and manipulate terrain tiles and miniatures on a tactical battle map.

Essentially, it does the same thing as existing virtual tabletop applications but with the added benefit of providing players the suggestion that they’re really sitting together playing face-to-face.
