We developed Dumpy: Going Elephants in the DePaul University game program for the IndieCade Oculus Rift game jam. We've been making AR Games for a while (AtG, Kaiju Kazoo, Mechanice) and we enjoy creating games that leverage the affordances of new technologies. One of the things that excites us about the Rift is to use head rotation as primary input. Given a rich context and juicy game mechanic, this opens up new forms of gameplay.
