This year’s Boston Festival of Indie Games featured a stellar lineup of developers showcasing their hard work and dedication to making a game they can call their own. We got to sit down with Team Future, the group behind the very intriguing Black Hat Oculus, which is taking two-player cooperative gaming to a new level:



Oculus is the leader in virtual reality (VR) technology with over 75,000 orders for development kits for the company’s VR headset, the Oculus Rift. Last week the VR company’s billion dollar acquisition with the social media company Facebook left fans feeling uneasy. Facebook is said to plan for the extension of Oculus into communications, media, entertainment and education. With the broad potential applications, VR is now a strong candidate to be the newest social and communication platform.

Now this sounds cool and all but this week fans back lashed against the new merger and death threats and other abuses flooded the Oculus VR officials. The announcement spread through the gaming sphere and tech industry with a mixture of shocked and angry emotions.
