Vancouver is becoming a hotspot for virtual reality.

The technology has come a long way, and now the hardware is getting into the hands of consumers. A recent VR convention held in Vancouver was sold out.

A Qualicum Beach company called Cloudhead was recently named by Time Magazine as having one of the best HTC Vive launch games. It’s called The Gallery: Call of the Starseed—Episode 1.

The game is a 1980s-based fantasy adventure that puts you right into the game where you can interact with your surroundings.

Players are fitted with a VR headset with laser tracking and motion sensors that allow you to move within the game.
