I got a bit motion sick playing on the Vive.Love the concept but that needs to get fixed.

@jayjayjay: You are a taxi crapet flyer and deliver customers around.
@bcoyle, @brianrose: It is a bit tricky to get the carpet into perfect position. When it is, the speed is good for even novices. Some of my friends tried to game without any help (other than having carpet in the right place) and they managed to get hang of it very fast. Try bending the carpet more into your lap. Thanks for the comments!

I just noticed that the video on the game page doesn't show up here. Here is some gameplay from jam night:

Really dig the idea. Haven't seen any vive games where you are sitting down to play but it seems like an interesting approach. Is there something you do in the game, like collect coins?

Got motion sick in the Vive. The compass and corners of the carpet are good constant frames of reference, but the fast acceleration out of the initial start area and the zippiness of spinning left or right was too much for me. The controls are intuitive but very sensitive. Really dig the idea of a magic carpet ride, but I was thinking more Aladdin and less Crazy Taxi.

Really interesting concept. The training space in the beginning was perfect for getting situated - but once it started I was zipping around so fast that I couldn't control the carpet. Ended up stuck in some corner between the mountain and some architecture? Audio was very fitting
