Oculus Rift + Kinect + KickR = Our Homage to Paperboy: PaperDude VRPosted: July 30, 2013
At Globacore we create custom branded videogames and interactive exhibits. Our specialty is in using emerging technologies in creative ways — usually for the purposes of marketing and advertising.
For this project we wanted to go back to our roots — back to a time where our romance with interactive technology began. Somewhere between typing in Load & Run on the Commodore 64, and checking out the latest arcade game at the convenience store on the corner… there was a game that stood out…
The game was called Paperboy… made by Atari and published in 1984.
It’s cutting-edge 3D orthographic projection blew Spy Hunter‘s top down view out of the water… the in-game speech seemed an impossible reality… and the actual bike handle game controllers on the arcade version was the cherry on top of this ground breaking emergent experience.
