Step inside your favorite game.
Oculus Rift is a new virtual reality (VR) headset designed specifically for video games that will change the way you think about gaming forever. With an incredibly wide field of view, high resolution display, and ultra-low latency head tracking, the Rift provides a truly immersive experience that allows you to step inside your favorite game and explore new worlds like never before.

We're here raising money on Kickstarter to build development kits of the Rift, so we can get them into the hands of developers faster. Kickstarter has proven to be an amazing platform for accelerating big and small ideas alike. We hope you share our excitement about virtual reality, the Rift, and the future of gaming.
Designed for gamers, by gamers.
The Rift takes 3D gaming to the next level. There are a number of VR headsets out there, but none that deliver a truly immersive gaming experience. Most products either lack the technical features required for believable immersion or sit at a very high price-point ($20,000+) reserved for the military or scientific community.
We set out to change all that with the Rift, which is designed to maximize immersion, comfort, and pure, uninhibited fun, at a price everyone can afford.
We’re working with the best teams in the industry.

"What I've got now, is, I honestly think the best VR demo probably the world has ever seen"
John Carmack, id Software

"Needless to say, I'm a believer... We're extremely excited here at Epic Games to get the Unreal Engine integrated with Oculus"
CliffyB, Design Director Epic Games

"I think this will be the coolest way to experience games in the future. Simply that... that big"
David Helgason, CEO Unity

"I’m really looking forward to getting a chance to program with it and see what we can do.”
Michael Abrash, Valve

"It looks incredibly exciting, if anybody’s going to tackle this set of hard problems, we think that Palmer’s going to do it. So we’d strongly encourage you to support this Kickstarter.”
Gabe Newell, President and Owner Valve

Bundling DOOM 3 BFG with the Rift
We're including a copy of DOOM 3 BFG Edition, the first Oculus-ready game, with every Rift dev kit on Kickstarter. John Carmack showed DOOM 3 BFG at E3, stunning the press and creating incredible anticipation for the release.

We have plenty of Rift prototypes internally - A few are even out in the wild, in the hands of developers like John Carmack. But we want to make the Rift available to all game developers, today, so they can be part of the development process. Kickstarter makes that possible. Your voice will be critical to making the Rift hardware and software as great as they can be.

We are big fan of Oculus Rift. For almost 1 year, we've been pouring our life into an exciting new project called Realms of Goldesia. A new MMO RPG which is being designed to be compatible with the Oculus Rift Virtual Reality headset. Check out Realms of Goldesia at kickstarter , An MMORPG that allows for total immersion through its skill-based class system, player-driven world & support for Oculus Rift.

Skills are increased through use, rather than by gaining experience. Players live their choices. Players create their own stories, ones that would shape the events on realms. ROG merely provides an epic setting filled with catalysts for adventure. No grinding, no questing, no predetermined destinies - a realistic & dynamic world shaped by players. Support us today, back the project and get your own goods, or share a link on your social sites for your friends to take peek.
