Oculus Noob Slayer is a new forced perspective simulation game from 4 inspiring students at McGill University.

The basic idea of forced perspective is simple: it's that thing that lets you pick up the Eiffel Tower when it's in the background in cleverly angled photos.

Objects close to you seem big, objects far seem small. In the video demo you can see small objects close to you become large objects which are far away, and large, distant objects become small enough to fit in your hand. This is further used to solve puzzles, like filling a dangerous gap with giant tetris blocks.

The cherry on top is the Oculus Rift, a virtual reality headset that allows users to fully immerse themselves in a simulation. Using the Rift to fully control the position and size of objects is a feeling that must be experienced to truly understand.
