Mirinda VR

Overview

Mirinda VR is an immersive desktop application with gamification features for Oculus Rift that uses virtual reality technology. Users are offered to take a ride and shoot Mirinda cans in order to collect maximum points and bonuses as well as get to the finish as fast as possible.

The application is designed to deliver a compelling virtual reality experience to desktop users of all ages.

Goal

Program-Ace team was intended to develop a fully-immersive and extremely realistic desktop app that will be running on Oculus Rift DK2. Moreover, the team was given the task to create a product that will contain the branding elements of the final customer and at the same time be gamified and fun. Our experts also wanted to design an application that can perfectly demonstrate the capabilities of virtual reality technology.

Challenge

The fundamental problems were related to the performance of the application across different devices. In particular, the challenge was to choose the right number of FPS (frames per second), since — if the number is too small — it can slow down the application in a virtual reality headset, while an unnecessarily large number may give the opposite effect - the simulation is too impetuous. Our experts carefully chose the perfect FPS number, so users can enjoy the ride with no obstacles.

Approach

The ready-to-use, 3D asset of an island has been graphically improved and optimized by our 3D department. Also, our team of 3D artists modified the asset by creating tracks for the roller-coaster and create a particle system to improve the user experience. Our experts also provide an opportunity to select one of three available tracks of the roller-coaster and shoot Mirinda cans by looking at them to collect bonuses while a user is riding in a booth.
