Zombies on the Holodeck uses the modular Holodeck platform to immerse players in a survival horror environment. Players use the Oculus Rift to explore with peripheral vision and head tracking, and use Razer Hydra controllers to shoot guns, pick up items, and build defenses.
If players choose to use all the Holodeck hardware, the game can support two players together over a network, sharing a playspace, and moving in 360 degrees with positional tracking. Alternatively, if all you have is a laptop, you can just use mouse and keyboard – although admittedly this is not ideal!
