Virtual Reality has the power to immerse us in brave new worlds, to make our gaming experiences infinitely more powerful and personal. As such, a new wave of VR adventures are currently in development for Oculus Rift and other platforms, designed to take advantage of its intimate and overwhelming new perspective.

Private Eye is one such project, currently being developed by Jake Slack. This investigative thriller casts players as a wheelchair-bound detective who has to recall pivotal events from his past and scrutinise clues from a first-person perspective, exploring a gritty 1950s setting in full 360 degrees. Originally developed during a Game Jam, it's now vying for mainstream exposure on Steam Greenlight.

Having tried it out at EGX Rezzed (and being thoroughly mindblown in the process), naturally we grabbed Slack for a in-depth interview. Discover how Private Eye plans to shake up the adventure genre, what Oculus Rift can do for the genre and what real developers think about the controversial takeover in the video above. Subscribe to Dealspwn for more gaming videos.
