Description: You’re on a plank, 80 stories high. Knees shaky, palms sweaty. You have a choice. Do you walk or do you freeze? Richie’s Plank is the only experience that lets you clone real-world objects into the virtual world for added immersion.
Clone a real-world plank into the virtual world. Customise your size and orientation in the settings. We created Richie’s Plank Experience to entertain friends and family. It isn’t a game. It’s a psychological experience that your visitors and guests will react to with exhilaration, fear or laughter. Also include 3 flying superhero missions, spider surprises, cake and a skywriting.
Review: If you want to prove that VR can sometimes feel terrifyingly real this is the app to put people into. Even if you don’t think you have a fear of heights this app will give it to you. It looks amazing, its a joy to watch people play and even features some mini-games to give the app a little bit of longevity. But sadly I still don’t think it is worth the current asking price. If you intend to introduce a lot of people to VR maybe it will be worth it, but for most people, a few goes on the plank and a couple of plays of the mini-game and you will soon find yourself bored of it.
