In a press release issued last weekend, Razer has announced 15 virtual reality games that will be coming to its open source VR headset, the OSVR HDK. Each of these games was selected from applications sent to Razer’s newly-established OSVR Developer Fund: an initiative designed to get VR game developers onto the OSVR platform in exchange for support stemming from the $5 million set aside for applicants.
The list of games includes:
The games will be developed for the HDK2 – the latest hardware iteration of the OSVR headset design. The HMD is designed to be modular, so users can upgrade individual pieces of the hardware, such as the display system, without having to buy an entirely new headset.
It’s not clear what the requirements of the games in this fund are in regards to supporting future hardware revisions, but since the latest HDK2 display system is relatively on par with that of the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, we don’t foresee too many compatibility issues.
