Like a tout at a county fair, Nvidia took the opportunity to announce that its free VR Funhouse carnival game simulator will support Oculus' Touch controllers at the VR headset manufacturer's Connect 3 developer conference in San Jose, California. The green team has also taken this opportunity to show off the two new mini-games it added to the VR experience: Wall Walker Toss and HotShot Basketball.
The 1.2 update increases VR Funhouse's mini-game count to nine. Nvidia developed VR Funhouse using Epic's Unreal Engine in combination with its own GameWorks and VRWorks development tools. The GPU maker originally offered VR Funhouse for download in July.
VR Funhouse may be a free download, but its steep hardware requirements haven't changed. The recommended system configuration includes an Intel Core i7-5930K CPU and at least one GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card. Nvidia recommends that users dedicate a second GPU to PhysX for maximum performance.
