Since launching on PC this past February, the game has exploded in popularity, due in large part to its detailed crafting system, addictive combat mechanics, and “nostalgic” graphics.

No Single Person Invented Virtual Reality. Virtual reality enthusiasts can’t point to a single person who is responsible for the creation of VR. Instead, many people contributed to the technology’s growth. There are at least five people who can lay significant claim to the title: Morton Heilig, Jaron Lanier, Douglas Engelbart, Ivan Sutherland, and Myron Krueger.
