oculus vr opens its doors to devs with a new site where they can share games

oculus share pageOculus VR has launched a new platform known as “Oculus Share,” a site for developers to post and play new and existing Oculus Rift demos, and get feedback from the community.

For the last year at least, more and more developers have been putting out demos for the Oculus Rift VR headset. But with no central way of sharing those demos, many have been lost, or at least gone ignored. The goal of Oculus Share is for devs to have a single, unified location where they can post their own games and ask for feedback, or even just go and play other demos to get a better sense as to what the hardware can do.

“With Share, you can host Oculus-ready games and experiences that you’ve created, browse and download content from other developers, rate experiences on quality and VR comfort level, provide feedback to devs on what you enjoyed (and what you didn’t), and tip fellow developers for their work in cash, should you feel so inclined,” Oculus VR said in a blog post.

At the moment, the company is looking at Oculus Share as just a sharing site, but in the coming months, as the consumer headset’s release draws closer, it will become a marketplace for games, demos, and apps. 

The site is free to devs, and currently up and running. Oculus is currently vetting entries from devs one by one until firm guidelines for submissions can be created, but it is accepting content for review now.
