Games That Support HTC Vive Trackers

Redfoot Bluefoot Dancing

Rebuff Reality’s Redfoot Bluefoot Dancing is a VR rhythm game that can best be described as a mashup between Audioshield and Dance Dance Revolution. The game takes advantage of the Vive Trackers to bring your feet into the game so that you can kick notes for higher scores.

Redfoot Bluefoot Dancing offers configurations for two or three trackers, but for obvious reasons, you can’t play the game with just one. It's available on Steam, but you can get a free copy if you order a pair of Rebuff Reality’s TrackStraps.

  • Tracker Support: Two or threeTrackers, foot or full-body tracking
  • Tracker Accessory: TrackStraps

Paddle Up

Paddle Up is a virtual reality ping pong game that offers online multiplayer competition. There are different levels of grip to tailor your paddle to your style of play. Paddle Up also includes multiple single-player modes that you can play to hone your paddle-wielding skills before you take on real opponents online.

If you want a leg up on the competition, you may be interested in trying a Vive Tracker and a ping pong paddle peripheral. Even if it doesn’t improve your game, the realistic feeling of the Vive Tracker ping pong paddle adds to the immersion of the experience.

  • Tracker Support: One Tracker,

For Fun labs warned that using a Vive Tracker could cause problems with mixed reality recording setups.

Island 359

Cloudgate Studio was one of the first developers to embrace HTC’s Vive Tracker. Shortly after HTC revealed the device, Cloudgate Studio began experimenting with full-body tracking. At GDC 2017, the developer let us stomp on compies in an experimental build of Island 359, and now that the Vive Trackers are available, you can do the same.

In early December, Cloudgate released the “Virtual Self” update for Island 359, which enables full-body avatars with enhanced body tracking. You don’t need a Vive Tracker to enable the virtual self avatar, but you can improve the body and leg accuracy by attaching one, two, or three trackers to your body.

  • Tracker Support: One, two, or three Trackers, hip, foot, full-body tracking
  • Tracker Accessory: TrackStraps
  • Publisher: Cloudgate Studio
  • Developer: Cloudgate Studio

Duck Season

Stress Level Zero’s Duck Season is a VR spoof of the classic Duck Hunt NES game with a dark twist to it.

You can play Duck Season with a standard motion controller, but you can have a more fulfilling experience if you use the Hyperkin Hyper Blaster peripheral, which resembles the lightgun from the game.

When you buy a Hyper Blaster and Vive Tracker bundle, you also get a code for Duck Season with your purchase.

Practisim VR

Practisim VR is a game for pistol lovers. It offers realistic simulations of multiple professional pistol shooting disciplines, including IPSC, USPSA, Pro-Am, and Steel Challenges.

  • Tracker Accessory: Hyperkin Hyper Blaster

    But would you virtually touch the games by strapping a Vive Tracker to the end of a ten foot pole?

    I have the racquet bundle and the blaster bundle. The ping pong and tennis are spot on. I'm really enjoying mine.
