     SelfieTennis - Key Art

    April 5th, 2016


    – Go play with yourself –

    Launching alongside HTC & Valve’s Vive today, April 5th, is #SelfieTennis, from VRUnicorns and Devolver Digital.

    Check out some more videos here.

    #SelfieTennis is the creation of a freewheeling group of jammers who have gathered under the banner of VRUnicorns. With absolutely no knowledge of tennis beyond that it involves rackets and some balls, VRUnicorns have recreated tennis: you play with or against yourself in virtual reality and record your fancy tricks with the #SelfieStick for the world to see.

    “#SelfieTennis will change the way people think about tennis and playing with themselves” offered VRUnicorns’ #ChickenBitch, Julie Heyde, “Recreating one of the world’s most popular sports in VR by removing 50% of the players and altering pretty much all the rules makes perfect sense when you don’t think about it”.

    CEO, CFO and COO of Devolver Digital, Fork Parker commented, “I did not get to own 14 mansions, 6 helicopters and more yachts than I can possibly count by not knowing that all successful hardware platforms are powered by porn. When the marketing department told me they had a VR project that was all about playing with yourself, I was 100% behind it. Now I find that those clowns were talking about tennis.”

    #SelfieTennis is available for HTC Vive via Steam but does not support Virtual Boy…yet.

    More information on #SelfieTennis can be found at www.vrunicorns.com and by following @VRUnicorns and @devolverdigital on the Twitter.
