Remember NVIDIA’s VR Funhouse? It’s a virtual reality game in which users can experience a carnival and some of those popular fair games we all love and know. But this title wasn’t really created to get all the gamers playing for hours. Its main purpose was to showcase what the newest NVIDIA graphics cards can handle. They go as far as assuring that they can make VR worlds sound and feel real.

Now that NVIDIA has shown us what their GPUs are capable of, they want to hand VR Funhouse over to developers and see what they can do with it. The game’s latest update supports mods. This means any of you can create interesting experiences for this carnival game.

Swap out your shooting gallery pistol for a tommy gun, whack the moles while their hair is on fire or build your favorite mini-game in VR. With VR Funhouse mods, the possibilities are endless.

Interested? The mod kit, 5 initial mods and the source code are all available now. You can get started right away.

  • If you’re a modder, download the VR Funhouse Mod Kit, create your own mods and share them with the world.
  • If you’re a gamer, visit the VR Funhouse Steam Workshop page, subscribe to one of the mod experiences created by the community and add it to your game. NVIDIA has even created a few of our own mods for you to enjoy. They include:
    • Big Top: Cover your carnival with a colorful circus tent.
    • Great Moles of Fire: Box moles with their hair on fire.
    • Super Whack-A-Mole: Whack moles in 360 degrees.
    • Tommy Gun: Swap out your shooting gallery pistols for a tommy gun and take on the Shooting Gallery and Cannon Skeet.
    • Zero Gravity Goo: Shoot colorful clowns with slow-motion goo.
  • And, as we promised when we released VR Funhouse, the source code for this game is now available to all. If you’re a game developer, access the full VR Funhouse source code from Github, and build your own game with the powerful NVIDIA GameWorks, PhysX and VRWorks technology integrated into Unreal Engine 4 and VR Funhouse.

Enjoy!
