    Veer VR Launches Experience Tool For VR Content Creation

    Veer VR has launched a free web-based virtual reality content creation tool as part of an effort to get users to create more content within the Veer global VR content community.

    Veer Experience is a coding-free interactive creation tool that people can use to create VR photos and videos, including those that can be viewed in 2D as 360-degree experiences. Veer already has more than 50,000 creators and 30 million users from more than 180 countries.

    “The VR industry is lacking quality content, but with the proper tools we will be able to empower creators to produce more high-quality engaging VR content easily,” said Veer VR CEO Ayden Ye, in a statement. “By utilizing the Veer VR content platform, fresh VR content will be delivered to a broad, global audience. Veer is going to continue developing more advanced features that cater to the needs of VR content creators.”

    Veer Experience is for VR content creators who want to tell their VR photo and video stories in a more engaging, creative, and immersive way. Experience supports VR video and photo background in different formats (360 degrees, 3D FOV), and allows creators to simply create an interactive story by adding hotspots, cards, external hyperlinks, VR video and photos as a background, and more.

    You can use Veer Experience to distribute VR content across platforms with a single click. Veer Experience videos and photos work on the web, mobile, and major VR headsets, including Oculus Go, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Gear VR, Google Daydream, Windows MR, Mi VR, and more. A lot of the content focuses on travel, sports, and adventures.

    Veer’s investors include Bertelsmann Asia Investment, DCM, Qiming VC, Sierra Venture, and Samsung NEXT. The company has 70 employees and got its first funding round in 2016. It has raised $17.5 million to date.

    Previously, Veer only supported VR video and VR images. With the new experience tool, users will be able to create interactive 360-degree VR video stories with just a few taps or clicks. Top creators include Warner Bros. Pictures, World Bank, and the Academy of Art.

    The Biggest Rift, Vive and Windows VR Releases Of The Week 09/02/18

    PC VR hits back with a strong list of releases this week. Whether you’re on Rift or Vive there’s a handful of great games to choose from, though sadly Windows VR support doesn’t really seem to be in the mix.

    Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner – MARS, from Konami
    Price: $29.99 (Rift, Vive)

    The ZoE series has always been something of a cult classic, which makes this latest port of the second game a bit of a treat for VR fans. The entire thing can be played inside a VR headset for the first time, letting you command super-cool space mech, Jehuty in a full campaign that will pit you against other super-cool space mechs. The VR conversion isn’t perfect, but it’s definitely something long-time fans will want to check out.

    Virtual Virtual Reality, from Tender Claws
    Price: $19.99 (Rift, Vive)

    Tender Claws’ brilliant existential take on VR is finally making its way onto the HTC Vive this week. You play as an AI that assists clients in a virtual universe, looking to get their highs in all manner of weird ways. Stick toasted bread to sentient butter, blow a tumbleweed across a canyon, and maybe even unearth the disturbing secrets that lay the foundation for the metaverse you explore.

    Unknown Fate, from Marslit Games
    Price: $14.99 (Vive)

    Unknown Fate offers a full adventure campaign with optional support for the HTC Vive. Explore a fantastical new world in which you’ll complete mind-bending puzzled and face off against dark foes. There seems to be plenty of incredible sights to Unknown Fate, though we don’t know how it shapes up from a gameplay perspective.

    The Biggest PSVR Releases Of The Week 09/02/18

    After last week’s influx of great new releases, it’s back to business as usual for PSVR this week. Don’t despair, though; there is one really big new launch for fans of giant mech battlers.

    Apocalypse Rider, from Naked Monkey
    Price: $4.99 (US only)

    We hadn’t heard of Apocalypse Rider before today but it’s trailer proudly called it a “sick VR game without motion sickness” and who are we to judge? You speed down a highway on a motorbike, dodging traffic as you overtake with reckless disregard for your safety and that of others. It’s is just me or is this game promoting bad driving?

    Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner – MARS, from Konami
    Price: $29.99

    The ZoE series has always been something of a cult classic, which makes this latest port of the second game a bit of a treat for VR fans.
