Wanna take your Ned Stark roleplay to the next level? Here comes Disunion, a guillotine simulator that works with the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset and was slapped together by three developers in just a few days.

Though this is a far cry from the Oculus Rift's peaceful "Tuscan villa" demo, the experience is just as immersive. Your entire vision is filled with the in-game world, and the headset itself is unobtrusive, like wearing a large pair of ski goggles. After a few minutes, you lose track of the real physical space you're in. So much so, in fact, that the slight inconsistencies between the game and your head movements can make you seasick.
