This is what the studio has been up to

Even with full safety gear, reassuring floor mats, and those dorky little shoes, rock climbing indoors is something I find to be both scary and exhilarating. I can’t even entertain the idea of free climbing out in nature, but virtually? Maybe! Steven’s extended impressions of The Climb certainly intrigued me.

The Oculus Rift game released today for $49.99. Higher than you were expecting? Me too.

The Climb has three locations (Canyon, Alps, and the “Asia-themed” Bay) for its main campaign as well as an endless practice wall, six bouldering routes, challenges, and a lower-stress Tourist mode with simplified gameplay meant for players to better take in their surroundings.

When I saw this part of the trailer, my stomach instinctively churned. Good lord.
