With GameVRoom, users can enjoy a socially immersive experience while playing non-VR titles with friends using their VR headsets. Players can host a private or public room, set the theme as a chic apartment or a sleek spaceship, and dive into their library of desktop Steam games. Experience first-person shooters, platformers, RPGs, and more in a fresh way with up to three friends in multiplayer mode.
GameVRoom is equipped with unique tools and features for custom gameplay, giving users the ability to:
- Emulate a mouse, keyboard, or gamepad for seamless movement in ways tailored for VR.
- Create virtual buttons to use as controls in-game.
- Bind controller actions, gestures, or poses to any keyboard, mouse, or gamepad button.
- Enter multiplayer mode to spectate, play split-screen in “couch co-op” or control different parts of a single-player game.
“GameVRoom harnesses the power of VR so players can re-experience their Steam games in a shared, immersive space,” said Jonatan Crafoord, Creative Director & Co-Founder at Really Interactive. “Whether you want to bring back some nostalgia with split-screen multiplayer or just hang out while watching a friend play, GameVRoom offers a host of features to enhance the original gaming experience. This is just the beginning – many more features will be added throughout Early Access.”
GameVRoom is compatible with most SteamVR-capable headsets. More information about hardware and Steam Library compatibility can be found here.
