Innovator of Natural VR Movement Organizing “Race for NFT in ContractorsVR”
● VRJunky NFT Collection ● Launches Nov 6th
VIENNA – October 20, 2021 – Cybershoes, the world’s first shoes for walking and running in virtual reality, are now available via Amazon for all VR users in Europe and the United States.
“Cybershoes have been incredibly successful on Amazon in America, so we’re over the moon to see them arrive in Europe for our fans across the pond!” said Michael Bieglmayer, CEO of Cybershoes. “On top of all that we’re announcing the first NFT series of VR to praise the wonderful community that has helped make Cybershoes a success and continue to grow the VR market.”
The breakthrough locomotion accessory is also now integrated with arcade-inspired VR hack-and-slash roguelite Until You Fall from Schell Games. Players can utilize Cybershoes motion capabilities to run through neon soaked levels of magic-infused monsters, grooving to a pounding synthwave soundtrack.
Following the success of their Contractors VIP tournament in May, which featured prominent VR creators like Soul Fox Gaming and Proper D, Cybershoes’ intuitive locomotion controls are now part of the Quest version of this competitive multiplayer shooter VR game. Furthermore, Cybershoes will host a new Contractors tournament, open to all Cybershoes owners on Oculus Quest, on November 6th. Players will compete for the chance to win one of the first pieces of Cybershoes new “VRJunky” digital art collection. For instance, the winner of the tournament will receive the prestigious “Golden Skeeva,” secured on the Solana Blockchain. Tournament registration is now open at www.cybershoes.com/nft/.
“Cybershoes were easy to implement – our team was able to do it in just minutes!” Said Lon Wick of Caveman Studios, the team behind Contractors. “The first tournament was the perfect showcase of the technology behind Contractors, so be sure to tune in to the next one to see even more!” You can follow the tournament here.
Cybershoes are also now integrated with Grapple Tournament, the adrenaline-packed shooter with vertical combat. The title is currently on Rift, Steam, and App Lab, and will include full integration of Cybershoes when the title launches on Oculus Quest soon.
Mr. Chief of Tomorrow Games, the lead developer behind Grapple Tournament, said: “Cybershoes is awesome and, honestly, I didn’t think it was this cool until I tried it!”
Superbright, another developer who implemented Cybershoes into their title Death Unchained, added “I was quite skeptical, but the combination of how easy it was to implement, the feedback I got from our developers, and the support we’ve gotten from the Cybershoes team has made me want to spread the word! I encourage other VR developers to consider reaching out and implementing this new form of locomotion.”
Strapped to your feet and connected to your HMD via Bluetooth, Cybershoes for Quest is a VR accessory that translates natural movement to in-game locomotion.
