AaaaaaaaAAAAaAAaaaaAA!!! For the Awesome gets Rift support on Linux

Posted by , | Views: 7,599
On the weekend, I had the pleasure of testing the Rift friendly version of AaaaaaaaAAAAaAAaaaaAA!!! For the Awesome (known as Aaaaaculus) for Owlchemy Labs. Earlier today, this was rolled out to Linux users, so I thought I'd put together a super quick write-up for those who might be interested.

It's a nice, solid Rift port, which should be surprisingly accessible to newcomers to the HMD experience. AaaaaaaaAAAAaAAaaaaAA!!! For the Awesome's camera shake and in-game UI has been removed to make for a more imersive experience (though I do miss the urgency that the camera shake gave the AaaAAaaa!!! series).

If a picture is worth a thousand words, here's a brief 2.5 million word rundown (or, a 1:23 video).

AaaaaaaaAAAAaAAaaaaAA!!! For the Awesome is currently available on Steam and the Oculus Share store (the latter has a demo).

I'm not aware of whether there are plans to add it to Humble Bundle: PC and Android 8 purchasers' download pages, but I'll be updating the article when I find out!
