They've shown up numerous times presenting this technology with an attempt to garner easy money. They already suckered in Australian government with a $2 million grant. They haven't really produced anything new and are just presenting the same polished demos without making efforts to tackle any of the issues inherent in such voxel-based engines.

I've found with my Note 3 with Otterbox case that I would either need to use the speaker function or have a bluetooth earpiece to call in a convenient manner. Putting the phone up to my ear is just embarrassing.

Of course, that's not what I got the Note 3 for, otherwise I would've stuck with my old dialpad phone. I got it for PDA functionality, for which it performs the task wonderfully.

Comment Oculus Rift support (Score 2) 32

The best thing about the game is their dedication to implement good Oculus Rift support, which is perfect for a game like this. Too many games haphazardly slap Rift support onto them and it becomes a mess trying to deal with menus designed for monitors being displayed on the Rift and other things that makes the Rift experience real poor. These devs, however, realize the obstacles with Rift support and are willing to put the extra effort into making it worthwhile.

If in any problem you find yourself doing an immense amount of work, the answer can be obtained by simple inspection.
