Overview[edit]

3dSen VR is primarily made for VR headsets. There is also an upcoming 3dSen PC version for people without VR headsets. That version will potentially be available for Linux and macOS. 3dSen has been in development since 2015 and was previously know as 3DNes VR, name was changed for release on commercial platforms.

Currently it is possible to use the VR version without a headset, although the UI design is optimized only for a VR experience with curved UI, gaze and laser beam control, only single player support, doesn't have the full screen mode, etc. All the testing was exclusively done in VR mode, so only VR mode issues will receive official support. To use it without a VR headset; use the mouse as the gaze control so you can interact with the UI normally using the controller button.
