Rhythm game currently has a 20-song playlist.
IMEX Media has launched its virtual reality rhythm game Riff VR on Steam through its Early Access program.
Compatible with the HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift, Riff VR puts the player in the role of a band member, letting them choose to play instruments or be the lead vocalist without the need for accessories.
Currently there are 20 tracks to play; the playlist is as follows:
- Europe – “The Final Countdown”
- KISS – “I was Made for Loving You”
- Night Ranger – “Rock in America”
- Grand Funk Railroad – “We’re an American Band”
- Joe Walsh – “Rocky Mountain Way”
- Lynyrd Skynyrd – “Sweet Home Alabama”
- The Music Explosion – “Little Bit O’Soul”
- 3 Doors Down – “Kryptonite”
- The All-American Rejects – “Swing, Swing”
- Everclear – “Santa Monica”
- Fall Out Boy – “Sugar, We’re Going Down”
- 38 Special – “Hold On Loosely”
- The James Gang – “Funk 49”
- Night Ranger – “Sister Christian”
- Poison – “Talk Dirt to Me”
- X Ambassadors – “Renegades”
- Marcy Playground – “Sex and Candy”
- Deep Blue Something – “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”
- Telsa – “Modern Day Cowboy”
- Poison – “Nothin’ but a Good Time”
An update video shared on the game’s YouTube channel shows the guitar, and drums gameplay mechanics (the former has a patent pending,) as well as the scoring, and combo systems. Watch it below to see the game in action.
Your performances can be stream to YouTube, and players can compete against each other for points on the Steam leaderboard.
A companion app called Riff AR is also available for iOS through the App Store.
This puts players in the role of the audience, or camera operator as they film and direct their music video. The app utilises in-game camera tools, and players get to choose which filters they want to use. Riff AR shares the same playlist as Riff VR and will also be coming out on Android later this year.
Watch the gameplay video below to see the app up and running, and how it augments reality.
