Sonic The Hedgehog Played On The Oculus Rift

This isn’t the only time we have seen a console classic in a first- person view (such as this video of Super Mario Bros for example) but this is the first we have seen one played using the Oculus Rift VR headset. Suffice to say, a first-person Sonic the Hedgehog experience will make you feel as queasy as you might expect.

This fan-made version of Sonic has been created using Sonic GDK (Sonic Games Development Kit) a selection of source codes which allow fans to recreate 3D games set in the Sonic world. This particular title also uses the Unreal 3 engine.

As the guy in the video says, if you don’t like roller coasters then you probably wouldn’t enjoy the experience but we imagine even high-speed fans will be grateful that the screen doesn’t spin frantically when Sonic goes for one of his spinning jumps…
