Your head controls the camera floating just behind 1920s adventurer Victor Howard, star of the new virtual reality Antarctic action game Edge of Nowhere. The white wilderness is all around you.
You control Victor with a controller that you cannot see, because you play this game with the Oculus Rift VR headset strapped to your face. You push Victor forward with a tilt of the analog stick and make him leap, icepicks drawn, toward the side of a glacier. As he clings there, you can tilt your head down. You won’t see your living room floor. You’ll see the chasm below. You can look up and see the big sky above.
You’re not simply playing a game like Uncharted or Tomb Raider. You’re inside of one.
