Iceland Version 1.0

You’ve waited, you’ve hoped, you’ve prayed, you’ve begged and you’ve threatened to eat our pet guinea pig Sir Squeakalot. But the wait is finally over, because Iceland Version 1.0 is finally here!

This isn’t just a simple update to support the DK2. Of course it does support the DK2 and Iceland looks more beautiful than ever. But we thought it would be a good opportunity to take a good look at Iceland and make it even more shiny.

Some of the highlights of this release are:

  • Animals! See if you can spot the rabbits, foxes, sparrows and other animals roaming around.
  • Highly optimised. Iceland was always a pretty demanding experience, with FPS sometimes dipping into the low 20s on powerful machines. So we’ve done a lot of optimisations to make sure you can get that magical smooth 75 fps all through the ride!
  • Added Aurora Borealis, because of pretty.
  • Changed the path to only use yaw and ignore pitch and roll by default. This should make the whole experience a lot more comfortable.
  • Added the ability to summon a crow to guide the way. This should help with the really easily nauseated people.

We hope you enjoy this experience! You can download Iceland here.
