In May 2014 VRFocus reported on the creation of a new virtual reality (VR) compatible videogame that paid tribute to the original Resident Evil titles. That videogame was Water Hazard, a third-person horror experience developer during a 72 hour game jam with support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). This week the developers have launched a new enhanced edition of the title for everyone to experience.
Water Hazard: Enhanced Edition can currently be downloaded on the official Oculus VR Share Beta on PC. As developer Samuli Jääskeläinen explains, this new version features ’90’s features’ including tank controls static cameras, low resolution textures and low poly character models. Players find themselves on a ship in the middle of the ocean and must explore their surroundings finding keys to locked doors and more.
The title features support for both the first and second development kits (DK1 and DK2) for the Oculus Rift. The title isn’t intended to be a serious effort, with the developer simply stating: “Enjoy pixels, texture warping and clunky controls!” VRFocus will continue to follow any and all applications of VR reporting back with any further updates on their progress and development.
