AaAaAA!!! for the Awesome is getting Oculus Rift support

Jul 11 // Jordan Devore    @DtoidJordan

AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaCULUS!!!

When thinking of games that would be both exhilarating and possibly stomach-turning when played with an Oculus Rift, AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome is a good candidate. Developer Owlchemy Labs has announced that such support is coming "sooner rather than later" for the base-jumping game.

"We've held some internal playtests down in the secret Owlchemy dungeon, and I can say with confidence that this is one of most absurdly awesome gaming experiences to date," writes the studio. "The feeling of falling is intense -- it's absolutely brilliant to dive off of buildings, feel the wind blur past your face, and graze by buildings for points. Players are ducking their heads when large objects come streaming by their face. It feels so... real."

And since you skimmed that last paragraph, here's the short version. AaAaAA!!! is already disorienting, so one can only imagine how the virtual-reality version would handle.
