Through the generations there has always been a demand from children to want to look after something with no consequences – Tamagotchi, Nintendogs, Kinectimals. Fourthwall has released today the virtual reality (VR) equivalent for mobile-based head-mounted displays, Dream Horse.
The equestrian VR simulator takes place in a magical forest which players can explore with their newly befriended horse. Chris Etches, Founder of Fourthwall, said in a press release: “Our mission is to bring casual games to the VR space, and pet-care seemed like the perfect fit. What kid wouldn’t want their very own magical horse and be able to actually visit the forest where their horse lives?
“While lots of studios are looking at the higher-end Oculus / Vive side of the market, we wanted to concentrate on being as accessible as possible, put simply, we want to make the Farmville of VR, and Dream Horse is the first step in that direction” Dream Horse is available now for free on Android with support for Mattel’s View-Master and other Google Cardboard compatible HMDs
