Welcome to the Furious Angels website! This community is devoted to promoting online gameplay with fellow virtual reality gamers. Not only do we provide a place for VR gamers to find others to game with, but we also provide feedback to Oculus and other game developers on what works and doesn't work in this new and uncharted platform that is VR! Please feel free to take a look around, and we hope you'll consider joining our community!

JOINING A COMMUNITY

Virtual reality, by its nature, tends to make people want to share the experience. It's so unique and so real that it really does feel like you are somewhere else. Being in a virtual world that is cut off from everyone can get lonely - you don't even have access to your phone or IM, things you are used to always checking. By joining a community of other VR gamers, you can share your virtual experiences with an online community. Make virtual friends who will give you a good reason to never play "Alone in VR" again! Know where the community is - which servers, which games!

TEAMWORK AND COMMUNICATION

One of the handicaps to gaming in a virtual universe is the difficulty in communication. Typing can by tedious. The easiest solution is voice communications. We have our own Discord server dedicated to our community. You can easily accomplish complex goals or give and take orders with our voice comms. No more peeking out from under your headset to find your keyboard!

NEWS AND INFORMATION

Are you addicted to surfing r/Oculus? Do you find you spend more time looking at VR articles than actually gaming in the headset? Stay up-to-date here as an active community keeps track of what's relevant and what's not! Know about the hottest demos and the best tweaks! Here you can get the support you need while helping others!

VR INTEGRATION

We're taking the first steps towards integrating VR applications into the every day functionality of the guild. Besides using Oculus' own social features, we're always looking at the newest social applications. VRChat, JanusVR, AltSpace, RiftMax...the list will continue to grow!

SHAPE THE FUTURE OF ONLINE VR

Let's be honest - VR is an infant. There is a LOT to learn. We are getting in on the ground floor. By becoming a full member of the Furious Angels, you will get priority on exclusive Betas for online VR games. We plan on working closely with game developers as well as the Oculus devs to provide feedback on what works and doesn't work in VR. Our area of expertise will be online interaction, team building features, ease of use, and other categories that relate to guild-like functioning in online VR. If you've always wanted to help influence the standards of online gaming, now is your chance!

Finally!! You can form parties in Oculus Home!

Quote
Today we’re rolling out an update to PublicTest that includes a new feature: Parties for Rift, so you can talk live with friends. In Oculus Home or Universal Menu, you can select a friend and choose “Invite to Party.” Friends in your party can chat with you across Rift apps, or wherever you go in VR. Each party can support a total of four people at a time and each person must have the PublicTest build installed to use Parties on Rift. Access to Parties will be rolling out gradually over the next twenty-four hours, so if you don’t see it right away, be patient.
