    Red Alert 2 remake for VR

    Hi everybody,

    I'd like to share my latest personal project. It's proof of concept VR RTS based on the original C&C: Red Alert 2 game.

    Since I got my HTC Vive, I was wondering how cool it would be to play C&C: Red Alert 2 in VR on a large room sized plotting table.

    So I decided to make it ...
    ... and yes, I was right it's awesome!

    Gameplay video using HTC Vive in room scale mode.



    More coming soon!

    This is fantastic, you have done a really good job of keeping it in the same style.

    I actually saw this on Reddit's front page. But Eurogamer have posted it here incase you didn't know.

    Love the tablet with everything on it. How well does it run with many many units?

    Great job so far! I've been waiting for games like this on VR since I first put my Vive on.

    Something that jumps to my mind is having a Tiltbrush style menu instead of the tablet (which also looks great). Being able to use your left thumb to quickly rotate/switch the menu to different units and commands may make selection quicker and easier.

    If you need testing at any stage, more than happy to help out!

    Hello Alexander,

    I am glad you like it!

    I am afraid I cannot release it in any form because of copyright issues. Unfortunately EA denied my permission request to share it with the community.

    Dear Adam,

    Thank you for your interest in Electronic Arts Inc. EA appreciates the passion that players like you have for our games, and we’re always excited to see the creativity that comes from our community. While we appreciate your enthusiasm for our Command & Conquer: Red Alert games, we are unable to authorize your request to distribute a remake VR version of our Red Alert 2 game, regardless of whether it is commercial. We greatly respect our fans and hope this response does not diminish your interest in our games.

    Kind regards,
    LC
    EA Permission Requests Team


    In the future I'll continue to work on the VR RTS concept, and hopefully release something new without the C&C: Red Alert IP.

    Awesome work sir! I've got 8 copies of Red Alert 2, and have been wanting to make a VR RTS game for a while now.

    Could you make this for Red Alert? That's freeware atm. Besides the clunky interface, it was a great game.

    Hey man, if you remake it from the ground up i.e. not a red alert copy but instead an original RTS game, j would be glad to help out with 3d work. Am a 3d artist and currently working on my 2nd title for VR. I wiuld love to help you see this through. I dont think you would have copy right issues if you made the 3d art unique to your game instead of copying red alert.

    Anyways let me know, this looks too awesome to let a big company bully you to its death.

    I've also wanted to see a VR RTS/god game since getting my Vive. I started a dungeonkeeper type game in the same idea space, but I'm nowhere near as advanced as yours.

    One idea that I did with my game tho, was when I rotated the left controller 90degrees inward (top facing me), it became a second menu, in my case for switching between level/building and interacting with the ai pawns. It was an easy way to quickly switch between two menus without having to fumble and hit a button. Just an idea to help further your project! Cant wait to play an RTS in vr.

    EA killed off those good series and now even wont let users to make free remake, someone from country where EA cannot reach should re-make it again.

    I feel sorry for the shutdown. this was the thing I was exited for. Red Alert have been for many years one of my favorite games. I hate to say it. but if you can't beat them. Join them. This needs to come out! This can save the RTS and CnC.

    There are many modder groups of different RTS games out there who probably would let you use their assets. In case of my RTS project I do the same, but if their work is not organized well, it can be hard to distinguish what is their own work and what is from the original game, so it helps a lot if you know the game well...

    It could be amazing when you send your well prepared troops to battle with a single gesture, I have a strong I-want-to-make-it feeling!
