Imagine Getting Your Head Chopped Off With the Oculus Rift

With the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset in developers' hands, the fresh ideas are flying faster than a head tumbling away from the executioner's axe. We've seen how much fun surviving can be in VR, now let's check out dying, Ned Stark-style.

André Berlemont, Erkki Turmmal and Morten Brunbjerg created this guillotine simulator in two days at the Exile Game Jam, and it's easily the most frightening (and funny) mini-game I could imagine in a fantasy game. Just keep the karate chops off my neck, or it'll quickly escalate from decapitation simulator to real-world hand removal.

That's one of those things I'm kinda looking forward to in VR. Oculus Rift is just the begining, but just imagine what stuff you could experience with a thing like in Sword Art Online. Stuff you really can't experience in real life, or don't want to.

  • Climbing a mountain wall and falling down.
  • For meat eaters: Being a Cow, moving to the slaughter.
  • For vegetarians: Being a Soya, not able to move, and seeing how a harvesting machine slowly approaches.
