“If you don't have access to current generation VR hardware, you're probably excited as I am. RiftCat is a glimpse of what the future of broke-ass VR gaming looks like, and it's so money.”

“By giving you the opportunity to play these games on commodity hardware, even if you just use the mouse and keyboard for interaction, players can learn to love VR gaming and, perhaps, one day drop a few thousand on a real rig.”

Adventure awaits you!

Use your phone to experience full 3D gaming with HTC Vive and Oculus Rift titles. Rediscover games like Minecraft, Elite Dangerous, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Project Cars, War Thunder and many more in virtual reality.

Affordable VR gaming solution

Pair VRidge with an inexpensive mobile VR headset like Google Cardboard and experience PC-based virtual reality gaming with an affordable price. You don't have to spend money upfront, start by testing everything out with the free demo.

Virtual Reality gaming in your hand

VRidge will make your PC think that your phone is an expensive HTC Vive, Valve Index or Oculus Rift headset. Download VRidge on both devices, connect them together and enjoy.

Rediscover your favorite games with GameWarp

Enhance your VR experience with VRidge's GameWarp addon, which enables you to play non-VR games with your virtual reality hardware. GameWarp technology lets you display the game in your headset and control it using your equipment.

GameWarp requires VRidge full version to run.

Original VRidge + GameWarp purchases
