Irrational Exuberance is an experiment to probe the possibilities of full room-scale VR and the HTC Vive, unfolding organically as you discover and engage with deep space phenomena. Prologue is the first taste of the galactic fantasy, delivering you to a lonely asteroid in deep space, underneath comets and giant stars. Irrational Exuberance has been an audience favorite at Sundance and the Kaleidoscope tour and praised as a defining VR experience by the media for its use of space, sense and setting.

The full release, scheduled for late-2016, will feature dramatic interactions, deeply-immersive moments, and impossible vistas.

  • UNCOMPROMISING DESIGN: Exclusively designed for room-scale VR interaction, Irrational Exuberance is a non-violent, organic experience that offers cinematic moments of space, solace and spectacle.
  • AMPLIFIED SENSES: A highly tuned, evocative spatial audioscape takes audiences to the surreal depths of space, from crumbling meteorites to chiming ephemera to the distant hum of stars.
  • HYPER PRESENT REALITY: Beautiful worlds, mysterious sensations, and nuanced interaction weave together to create a heightened sense and awareness of this alternate reality.
  • COMPREHENSIVE PREVIEW: A short, but impactful experience that foretells the events of the full Irrational Exuberance release.

Irrational Exuberance: Prologue reviews and comments

As a free VR Game, the Title is quite nice. Unfortunately very short-but is also more likely to be understood as a Teaker. The Control with the Vive controllers is well implemented, but the room scaling could be better.

Basically a good Experience for Beginners to become clear about the Dimensions of the VR. But Beware: If no Room has been captured before, you should not start the Game, otherwise it will be made to Motion Sickness.

Great if short, interactive Experience that makes you Want to play the full Game! Abstract but coherent Graphics, runs smoothly on my GTX 970 OC AND also comes clear with a little less than 2m in one Direction (with me 1.8m).

MIND-BLOWING this demo is simply one of the best VR experience I've been given to see. Magical, taking, with an amazing vibe, you can't pass by. I look forward to seeing what this will give in full game.

More an Art Project than a Game. The Graphics are ok if you like the Style. There is no action except to destroy Stone. Big Minus point (as with many VR projects, unfortunately): If you have Problems with Heights or free Space, you should be careful.

Free and no more than an Appetizer. At the same time irritating and fascinating. A VR shadow that shows us what will be possible with the new Technology. If this is so impressive here, what will it be like only when we step out of the Shadows?

Very jerky, just thought The Detection is not true, but the Game doesn't seem to run Properly liquid or seems to have Problems tracking. Otherwise, the wow effect was correspondingly bad. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend it. Even if the Idea seems to look quite good.

This was my first RV experience when I got the LIVE. 1) I Broke the meteor. 2) I said to Myself: What realism, this is incredible! 3) I realized that I had struck the command against the wall and that some of the feedback I had received did not fall within what should have happened. 4) I Finished breaking the meteorite with a little less energy. Recommended to spend some time.

Even if the Game is free, it is not recommended in its current State. Why? Because despite High-End PC (which has no Problems with other available VR games), the game constantly jerks as soon as you shatter the virtual Bricks-besides, you are constantly teleported between the Game and SteamVR surface-here is urgent An Update asked if the Developer wants players to rate this Title as a positive Experience and possibly a full price title to be released in the Future. In the current State, I can only advise against the Download.
