Virtual reality technology developer Oculus announces the open beta launch of Share, a new platform that allows users to self-publish, discover, download, and play virtual reality-based games and experiences.
Irvine, California-based virtual reality technology developer Oculus recently announced the open beta launch of Oculus Share, a new platform that allows users to self-publish, discover, download, and play virtual reality-based games and experiences.
Share is the first of many steps the company is taking to build a premium virtual reality platform. With Share, users can host Oculus-ready games and experiences they’ve created, browse and download content from other developers, rate experiences on quality and VR comfort level and provide feedback to developers. There’s even a system for tipping fellow developers for their work in cash, should users feel so inclined.
From the Oculus site:
Experimentation, iteration, and actual playtesting are at the heart of pushing virtual reality forward. One of the main goals in building Share was to help developers on all these fronts by creating a centralized community portal for Oculus content. And while it’s simply a sharing service today, over the coming months we’ll work toward making Share an incredible marketplace for Oculus-ready games, experiences, and applications.
Alpha testers for Share include Cloudhead Games, Owlchemy Labs, UXGround, Justin Moravetz, Aldin Dynamics, Lumina Celare, TerraNovita Software BVBA, and Enno Gottschalk.
