Silly Loading Human Player, You Just BROKE EVERYTHING

By Nathan Grayson on May 21st, 2014.

Must... not... break... own... phone, but SO ANGRY

Having hands is deceptively hard work. I mean, think about it. Do you know any non-human entity who’s even remotely good at it? And don’t say monkeys. They touch their own poo. That in mind, I’m prepared to identify with the apparent plight of virtual reality showcase Loading Human‘s main character, who seems to have a particularly aggressive case of butterfingers. Perhaps this is because VR hand controllers are still extremely underdeveloped and awkward to use, but I prefer to think Loading Human will be the story of one person’s struggle to not GET REALLY MAD AND BREAK EVERYTHING.

Random Absent Memories: Loading Human

By Adam Smith on April 3rd, 2014.

Have you read about my experiences in virtual reality? There was the time I peered through the clouds above Stalingrad like a bride examining the distant altar through her veil. That’s the highpoint of my limited experiences with the Rift so far but it’s my adventures in first-person corpse-carrying that are relevant here.

The game itself has a great deal in common with Gone Home, and point and click adventures, telling a story of memory, love and loss. Everything is tied to the control system though and as I stood in the middle of an office, as confused and vulnerable as a contestant on Knightmare, I was forced to admit that I am very bad at following instructions. And at standing still. I’ve never been quite so excited and exhausted by a single hour with a game.

Heads Up: Loading Human Is An Oculus Rift Adventure

By Craig Pearson on January 28th, 2014.

plot twist: you are dog.
Though the Oculus Rift won’t be able to let you live in a virtual world, it will have a game you can play about being a man reliving his life in a virtual world. That’s Loading Human’s concept: you are an obscure novelist dying of Alzheimer’s disease. You’ve been placed in a virtual world to essentially reboot yourself. The Rift will stick you in his memories, and the game will enable you to interact with the world, using external controllers to move your hands.
