Plastic are the Polish developers behind the weird non-game, Linger in Shadows. They’re also the guys making the very peculiar looking Datura, which is due for release next week. Their new game is a kind of first person adventure game, as far as we can tell. It utilises Sixaxis or PlayStation Move to allow the player to interact with the world.
Well, after being tasked by Sony to create “the most immersive virtual environment possible, using only consumer electronics”, they’ve gone and built an impressive VR rig. The system works thanks to Sony’s own 3D headset, the HMZ-T1, and an extra Move controller stuck to the side of it. That allows head tracking and a completely enclosed viewpoint.
It’s really all quite impressive.
