I wish I had VR :(
A downloadable game for Windows
Ever wanted to be a blacksmith? Yeah, neither have we.
Welcome to Smithereens!
An unholy fusion between Surgeon Simulator and whatever blacksmithing games are out there (not many), Smithereens is a virtual reality experience that offers the player a chance to step into the shoes of a novice space-age blacksmith. Using the Oculus Rift and the Leap Motion, it's your job to help our forgelord-in-training complete his work.
Look around your environment for contextual clues on what to do! Use various gestures to advance, press buttons and throw switches to work machinery and fuses, even pick up objects, like sanders and smithing hammers! All as you work your way through various stations. Or try to. Maybe.
Who knows, maybe at the end you'll have something vaguely resembling a sword!
Make sure you've got a Leap Motion and Oculus Rift, then just download and unzip to the location of your choice.
This game utilizes the Oculus runtime 0.7.0, so anything below that will not work.
To play, look around the workshop for clues! Many times the posters will give you basic instructions. You can also read the readme if you're stuck.
The basic controls however, are as follows: Make a circle gesture with your left hand to advance to the next station, and make a circle gesture with your right hand to quit. Make sure these gestures are pronounced, otherwise the game won't recognize them!
Slowdowns CAN occur, we've optimized the game as best we can but it's a very dense scene, here's hoping you have a good computer!
