Hololems Brings VR Lemmings to Your Living Room

Globacore this week have revealed footage of “Hololems” – their VR version of Lemmings to bring the classic game, quite literally, into your living room.

Utilising Microsofts ‘Hololens’ technology, Globacore has released screenshots, as well as a 3-minute video. It shows how they successfully navigated their Lemmings from one side of the living room using builders to get to the coffee table, blockers to change the route and more builders to get onto the armchair to paradise.

While the jury is very firmly out on whether VR technology is going to be mass market, work like this is nothing but encouraging, and quite frankly I don’t think it is possible to watch the footage without wanting a go yourself.

Having personally spent a good portion of the 90’s on Lemmings (mainly trying to figure out the ‘tricky’ levels) it is brilliant to see that the series is still held by so much affection and more so that someone came up with this frankly genius idea.

There is only one thing missing as far as I’m concerned.  Why didn’t they get all the Lemmings into a nice enclosed space and start the countdown to their destruction?

Personally, I think to witness about 50 ‘oh noes!’ in VR would be pretty impressive. Oh well, can’t have it all I suppose.
