Rocky vs the Firebugs

This was the launch title for the Tectrix VR Climber. This, and Deep are the only two Climber-only games. We took advantage of the extra controller axis to make a flight sim. (The VR Bike has analog left/right steering, but no up/down; for the VR Climber we added analog up/down control.)

It's a peculiar game design -- flying firefighting -- that turned out to be pretty fun. I think it's our most compelling one-person game, with the most replayability.

The engine was a rewrite/refactoring of the engine used for Sweeney Town, St Benjamin's, and Penguin Peak. It features the first use of Loose Octrees.

More later.
