A downloadable game for Android

Note: This game is built for Oculus Quest and can be installed with SideQuest.

Note: This is a pre-release version of Descent Alps.

Description

Descent Alps is a virtual reality skiing game. The player races down the mountain with a great sense of speed and urgency through motion controls.

The goal is to clear all gates and cross the finish line. Each course has a unique rhythm. Finding the rhythm is the key to success. The reward is adrenaline and the feeling of flow.

Controls

The game is played with motion controls. You turn by leaning or shifting your weight in the direction of the turn.

You gain better precison with hands in front of yourself and ski poles visible.

If you prefer its also possible to play with hands on your back or at the sides.

The gif above shows the two control "modes" that work the best.
