Yeah, yeah. The Oculus Rift has the capacity to radically reshape the way we experience games and all. But what I’m really stoked about is using it to finally replay twenty-year-old Virtual Boy games as they were intended.
That dream is coming true thanks to the VBjin-OVR Virtual Boy Emulator for the Rift, developed by the shadowy “jaymat.” The Virtual Boy, if you weren’t alive when it released, was Nintendo’s red-tinted, quasi-VR device, and it was pretty much dead on arrival. We had a fantastic article on it and all the awkward neck positioning in issue 4. And the Virtual Boy is worth reviving in a more comfortable fashion, as it had some great forgotten games like Mario Clash, and Wario Land.
You can give it a whirl here.
