Abstract

In seated virtual reality experiences, the player may feel disconnected from their character if walking is the primary method of traversal. The goal of this project was to explore alternative methods of character traversal to avoid this disconnect. Hikari Hook is a virtual reality game we developed in collaboration with Takemura Lab at Osaka University. In the game, players use a pair of grappling hooks to solve environmental puzzles and traverse the forest. Testing performed with students from Takemura Lab was used to improve the player experience.
