Default Anyone use VR?
I have a htc vive and made a b2p simulator, lots of fun, if anyone owns a VR headset I can send you the game. It may work with the rift as well but I haven't tried on that. It's good for making balloon rooms as well. Feels very life-like.

Is it possible to play without VR? I'd like to see it but I don't have a set yet Nice choice with the Vive though, if nothing else it's better than the Rift simply because you aren't funding Facebook's anti-consumer antics

No it was designed for vr from the ground up. You couldn't interact in the same way on a monitor. Would require a whole new game. The vive is so much better than the rift but expensive at just over 800. Also need a powerful computer which will be another grand.

Might be worth looking into Google Cardboard. Less than $10, works with basically any smartphone, and it probably has a good SDK.

I've tried that but once you've used high end vr, you can't go back. The tracking is horrible, you can't move around the room, and there's no motion controls.
It's not too bad for watching videos though, just don't expect a good resolution.
