The Bellows: VR Demo is a VR App.


The Bellows Demo brings you to an estate where you are awoken in the middle of the night by a violent storm. Unfortunately, it is not a normal night as things soon start to go awry... This is a free 5-10 minute VR Horror experience designed to represent part of the more complex story in the full experience.
In the bellows three movement options are available.
Tackpad Movement
Move your thumb forward on the trackpad to move in the direction you are facing.
Movement speed has been reduced to avoid motion sickness.
For the smoothest experience this is recommended.
Arm Swinger
Hold the grip button and swing your arms back and forth to move forward.
For some users the added arm movement reduces motion sickness.
Walkabout is designed to use the players physical space to walk through the environment.
To accomplish this one would walk to the edge of their play space and press in the touch pad.
This will freeze the environment. The player will then turn their body and release the touch pad.
Using walkabout requires a large play space and makes moving through the environment very slow.
This is only recommended if Trackpad and ArmSwinger are unplayable.
