'We all have our own secret pleasures.'
Everyone has their own secret pleasures for stress-relieving. For many people pulling out hairs and breaking pimples are fun. Moreover many people enjoy watching Youtube videos about those secret pleasures. Do you think it is gross? Yes, it is. But what is the reason people are obsessed with these activities? It is so satisfying!
I wanted to recreate this experience in a VR game so that we could virtually enjoy this secret pleasure.
About the game

How to play
Pull out a hair
Grab hairs with the holding buttons marked in the image and throw it away with releasing the button.
(It works for both left and right hands controllers.)
Break a pimple
You just aim your head to a pimple, shoot it with pressing the button marked in the image. (It works for both left and right hands controllers.)
Head tracking is used.
You could also move places by teleporting by holding the buttons in your left and right hands at the same time.
How to supplement the physical feeling of pulling a hair and popping pimples?
- Haptic vibration when a user hold a hair
- Sound effects enforce what action the player is doing: Example when you pull a hair the game says “Ouch!”
- Explosion visual effects : Using particle system
