‘Waba’ is a #Virtual #Pet That Aims to Wobble Your Heartstrings #VR #Game [#geekgirl]

Coming to Oculus and Vive on July 10th!

Waba is an interactive character, empathy simulator, and virtual pet for VR. Waba wobbles when you touch him (her?), and s/he’ll also wobble your heartstrings. Waba was developed for controller-based VR with the goal of creating a special form of interactivity and presence that can only exist within the medium of virtual reality.

You can pet Waba, stretch Waba, feed Waba, put waba to sleep, and play fetch together!

The Walking Dead: Our World – Augmented Reality (#AR) #Gaming #ARKit demo [#geekgirl]

If you’ve ever felt that there’s not enough zombie-killing action in your day-to-day life, Finnish developer Next Games has your back with The Walking Dead: Our World.

The game combines the zombie hordes of the wildly popular TV show with Pokémon Go style augmented reality gaming. Unlike Niantic’s faithful implementation of the monster-catching sim, which can see some users tramping kilometres to track down a single measly Pidgey, Our World promises that you’ll be able to “fight walkers on the streets, in the park, on your sofa, wherever and whenever you feel like it”, with weapons ranging from swords to fully-automatic firearms.
