Motion Control Games for the Razer Hydra
In 2012, the Razer Hydra looked awesome, but it didn't have the games for it that I wanted to play. I'm learning how to program and make my own games. I started making games in Blender 3D / Blender Game Engine / Python 3.3. I'm transitioning to Unreal Engine 4 for its VR, 3D, Graphical and Audio capabilities.
Games Requiring Blender 3D
These games require Blender 2.70 64 bit. They can be played in the 32 bit version, if you swap out the pysixense.pyd from the in the scripts folder with the 32 bit version from //scripts/32bit pysixense. Blender 3D allows you to set complex graphics settings, Stereo 3D, and the ability to mod every game! Drone Warz and Tofu Alley also run in blender, and it allows you to play them in stereo 3D. They don't require a Oculus Rift, or work with one. They're 3D TV friendly, but don't work with nVidia's gaming 3D, since they locked out 3D for openGL.
Drone Warz: Motion Control Party Game.
Battle 7 friends, or just chill in the sky with Drone Warz' natural flight control interface.
Explore 5 inventive worlds, launch guided missiles, fire semi-interesting guns and crash
This minigame demonstrates flight and aim control in motion control gaming.
Crazy Awesome Razer Hydra Motion Control Interface
Gamepad / Mouse / Keyboard support
Drone Warz Controls: Download / View
Stereo 3D settings can be adjusted for various 3D display types.
Tofu Alley - Razer Hydra Exclusive Motion Control Minigame
Tofu is flying out of a dark alley into the streets of citiopolis, and there is only one way to stop it! You!
You, great master of the flying bats, have been chosen to save the city from Dr. Vegetarious' flying tofu. You must keep the city safe until the mayor bans flying tofu forever.
This minigame demonstrates one of the many possibilities of motion control: the ability to reach right into the game, and swing the bats with 1:1 accuracy. The harder you swing in real life, the harder you hit in the game.
2 Players Coop available: you each get one bat.
3rd and 4th players control tofu using keyboards.
You cannot play the game without a Hydra.
Interlaced, Side by Side, and Anaglyph 3D are supported.
You cannot use nVision 3D to play this game, because nVidia disables OpenGL 3D on gaming cards.
Sixense Drivers Tested, Razer Drivers Probably work too.
Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 - 32/64 bit.
Windows XP 32, Windows 8 64 bit
Linux and Mac are untested, but probably don't work with .pyd files.
Windows XP is required for 7.1 Surround Sound. No idea if it works!
There is also a "light" version and a quarter res texture pack available for older computers.
Unspeakable Violence: In Full Control.
Think you're a pro gamer? Well son, the game has changed.
We here in the future don't care about how well you can point and click, we care about how well you can rip apart worlds... with your own hands.
UVIFC is a motion control game based on the Razer Hydra motion controller using Sixense technology.
You're given control of a robot, and its hand movement follows your own, giving you unprecedented access to 1:1 sword fighting, wrestling moves, dual wielding, dismembering robots, shooting behind yourself, and in general, wreaking more havoc than you could imagine.
That's right. If you're looking for the future of gaming, that future is here now. Just click the download link that doesn't exist yet because this game is so futuristic, it hasn't even been released yet!
Details: Q1 2015.
Throw Stuff Around.
Drive a car around, and throw stuff around. Shoot stuff, throw stuff, flip, drive, jump and win.
1v1 splitscreen multiplayer. 1 Hydra required.
Space Robot Shooter.
Dodge, duck, and fire back on the fiendish waves of robots, connecting one hydra to yourself, and using the other as a ray blaster.
It's basically a rip-off of hydra cover shooter, but for people without a rift.
Ghost Town Shootout
1v1 Splitscreen - Your hydra is a gun. Shoot the other Ghost's hat off to win.
Ghost Dude RPG
A lad and his Ghost are forced to clean out his basement. The ghost can help by moving through walls. The Lad can help by shooting evil slugs that sap the Ghost's happiness. The Ghost is 1:1 control from the right hand, and the Lad is based off right hand position. It's currently a work in progress.
These work best passive 3D displays in Blender 3D. They're very little and perhaps amusing. Except one. It's horrible. Don't play it.
These games are not very interesting, but might amuse you for a minute or two.

Make your own motion control games.
Seriously. Use Blender 3D and the supplied template, and you'll be up and running in no time, or just read the code in my other games. It's very well commented. Each games uses different control schemes, and Drone Warz even works with multiple Hydras, so there's a lot of different ways to start. Feel free to use them as a template to get your game started. you can also try this really old template I made.
