The 562 team had the chance to work directly with Oculus, creators of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, on a project that brings fairy tales to life. With our introduction of Bedtime Stories, you are now able to listen to classics like Sleeping Beauty while the world around you evolves to reflect the story. Our goal is to bring people who are far away, closer together. We dream of a day that servicemen in far-off lands can get in virtual reality with their child back home, sit in bed, and read them a fairy tale. The project was an exciting opportunity for the entire team to work very closely with Oculus to create something new and innovative that makes people's life better.
Indie Game Makers Competition 2015
562 was excited to take part in the Humble Indie Game Makers Competition 2015. The task of the competition was to create (from nothing) a game in one month. The guideline given to the entrants was that the game should in some way incorporate exploration or discovery. So the game Chester was born. Chester is an abandoned treasure chest that has long been forgotten on a tropical island. But all is not at piece on your little piece of paradise. Pirates are descending on the island in hopes of finding your famed long lost treasure. You must defeat the pirates by finding trap parts throughout the island and caves. Once you trap all of the pirates, Chester is free to take their ship and sail for new adventure. Chester is a pay what you want game with all proceeds going to charity. At the bottom of the page is a link to a free download of Chester to play on any Windows 7+ (64 bit) OS.
