I'll be also creating this experience for the Oculus Rift!

As part of my desire to create an awesome immersive experience of Claustral Canyon, I will be offering people the option the view the experience using Oculus Rift technology.

Oculus Rift is a totally new way to immerse yourself in a virtual world, requiring you to wear a special virtual reality headset: http://www.oculusvr.com/. The headset completely immerses you in your environment and is one step closer to feeling like you are actually there.

I tested the technology at an event in Boston yesterday, talked to the founder, and the technicians and developers, and realize I can easily make this technology work with the Rift. The experience is absolutely awesome.

So, the reward options are now as follows. You choose one of these three options. As before, the more you contribute, the more realistic the experience gets:

1. The interactive experience played on a computer, where you navigate around using a keyboard or mouse, in the normal way, or

2. the DVD, for those less comfortable with computers, or

3. The interactive experience designed for the Oculus Rift (I'll only be supplying the software, not the hardware).
