If you are a fan of South Park and wanted to get even more involved in the world consisting of many scraps of construction paper moved around a flat surface, then you are in luck. The North American production team has apparently built the Colorado town from South Park for users to experience using Oculus Rift.

The team has stated that they wanted to build a ‘core piece’ that would make full use of the Oculus Rift technology, having an open-world with ‘a bit of an edge and a beautiful simplicity’. This idea landed on the South Park world, which the team stated to be ‘a perfect blend of everything’. The process of converting the South Park town into a 3D virtual reality game did not take long as well, having the team building it in “just a few short weeks in June”.

Users are said to be able to explore the town’s streets, interact with characters and even find easter eggs inside the piece of software. An example of such easter egg is said to be found when entering the town’s church, having users ‘fall’ into Hell, bumping into Saddam Hussein who is said to be able to take you back to the town. Also, although the experience is best suited for Oculus Rift owners, the landscape is said to be available inside the browser too.

For those who are interested in experiencing the South Park town, its characters and even Saddam Hussein himself (from the cartoon series, that is) can head over to the tool’s website here.
