Pretty much. The Oculus Rift tracks the orientation of your head.
I'm throwing money at the screen but nothing is happening...

Perhaps our beloved semi-inside-man Anton could enlighten us as to whether the dev team has even received the rift's dev pack yet?

Um... Ninjas said in IRC that both he and David felt motion sickness when they tired the occulus?

That's all I've heard.

That's the idea. That you can vomit whilst having a heart attack!

The future of gaming in all of it's glory.

I think I probably can't wear the Rift long enough to test it at this point -- might have to wait for another revision or two of their hardware and drivers to improve the resolution and latency before I can really work with it.

That is a shame. So the Rift hasn't been refined to the point of comfortable use yet?
I suppose there's no way of telling when such revisions are going to take place?

It's not really physically uncomfortable to wear on my face, but it made me dizzy and sick for a day or two after I tried it!

That's the thing I was most worried about, it making people dizzy and sick for a while.

Old post but relevant none the less. Now that Overgrowth is on steam and free copies of Receiver are being given out I figured this would be the best place to update people on the status of the original posters question.

Basically it's playable but the camera FOV needs to be increased to make it more comfortable for the human eye. Does anyone know how to do this? I don't have much experience with hacking Unity games.

If you're working with the Unity project the camera component has a slider for FOV, there should be an object called 'Main Camera' in the scene by default which is the player's camera. I'm not sure if there's a different camera component for the Oculus though.
