Sandbox VR promises a lot of work.

We now live in a world where virtual reality is more accessible than ever. Wear a pair of glasses with a computer built into them and interact in a fully digital world with full graphics, depth perception illusion and directional sound at home using the Oculus Quest or HTC Vive headset.

Virtual reality appears to be following the same difficult path as the film industry. As technology becomes more portable and accessible, developers have to work hard to deliver something that makes customers willing to leave their homes to experiment.

Sandbox VR is one of the latest attempts to right the wrongs made by the movie industry during the rise of streaming services. VR gaming experience has opened branches in Dallas At Mockingbird Station and Fort Worth In Crockett Row.

Augmented reality has always been one of the biggest challenges in virtual reality, and Sandbox tackles this hurdle by making players’ arms and legs fully responsive in a virtual environment like the Pico Neo 3 headset. Each player is given a VR headset and special tracking equipment that can identify the movement of players’ arms and legs using a four-track tracker. Points to be worn on their wrists and ankles. Players also wear special haptic jackets that can respond to the environment, whether you’ve been scratched by zombies or shot at by a pirate skeleton. Of course, it doesn’t leave as much lasting damage as real damage, but it does help knowing when to take a hit out of your field of view before your enemies can damage you forever.

Each game also allows you to interact with physical objects such as guns, shotguns, swords, and torches that you hold in your hands. Home headsets like the Oculus Quest and HTC Vive simulate weapons and objects through special controllers. Sandbox VR uses the same trackers as wrist and ankle bracelets. You feel like you are holding, swinging and holding these objects as you see them in the virtual world.

Sandbox VR offers six different experiences in a variety of genres for teams of up to six players. The majority of them are survival shooter games, but some titles go beyond just banishing ghouls in your face before they can scratch your eyes out of your sockets. Each one lets you choose a unique character who acts as an avatar during and after the game.

Damn Davy Jones is a pirate-like wave shooter where armies of undead fight notorious pirates, including skeletons, ghosts, and the Tarman-like The return of the living dead. The majority of the action involves shooting enemies and slashing them with swords, but some of the big bosses need some puzzle-solving skills to bring them down. The game also allows you to heal fallen comrades by touching their shoulders and using torches to light certain objects.

The experience doesn’t stop when the game is over and you’re wiping puddles of sweat. Each game tracks each player’s score from an account you create during check-in and publishes the highest scores on the franchise website by teams and individual players. There are also cameras placed around the gaming floor to track your movements in the game and in the real world and bring them together in a movie-style trailer.
