Yeti, San Francisco-based app maker Yeti (www.yeti.co) recently introduced a new app, Tiny Eye which is virtual reality smartphone game.

“Our goal was to create something that was casual and accessible, yet, fun and engaging,” said Yeti President and Founding Partner, Tony Scherba. “Virtual reality is usually about intense immersive experiences, so we built Tiny Eye to be a bite-sized and enjoyable game that anyone can pick up, play and come back to again and again. We want it to be what Angry Birds was for mobile or Farmville was for Facebook games.”

Tiny Eye Game for All Ages
Players of any age enter a tiny world of figures and scenes to find lost treasures and toys hidden all around the immersive space in three miniature, handmade “packs”:
Battle Pack – Travel back in time to see pirates, dinosaurs, and knights duke it out.
Wheels and Wings Pack – Get moving through worlds of planes, trains and automobiles.
Wonders Pack – Experience amazing people, animals, and landmarks from around the world.
It is very easy to access Tiny Eye (http://tinyeyeapp.com ). All you need to do is download the app from the App Store or Google PlayStore and decide whether to experience it with or without a headset. Players who want to play without a headset simply move their phone to find the hidden objects and touch the screen to highlight the object and strike them off the list.
If a player chooses to make use of the headset, they can use one of their own or purchase a DODOcase headset (http://www.dodocase.com/collections/virtual-reality#_a_yeti ) in the app. The hidden objects will change over time to allow players to come back to their favorite levels and experience Tiny Eye anew all over again.
“We built Tiny Eye as a throwback to one of our favorite games as a kid, and we hope it’ll be something that introduces more people to the magic of virtual reality,” added Scherba.
