Would love to try it without signing up. You must add such an option.

@graciousgarg Agreed that would be better. I've never wanted to read in a VR environment... what are the advantages?

@graciousgarg Hi Garg, did you mean for it to have a preview/demo accessible from the landing page, so that anyone not sure what the app is could have a quick sneak peek? If so, that is actually a great idea, and i will add it as a future improvement.

@graciousgarg @abadesi About the advantages or rather motivation to read in a VR environment. The idea is to have a set of VR environments you can attach to your books, with the goal of making the reading experience more immersive. Imagine reading a Batman comic on a roof of a Gotham building, while Batman is doing his crime fighting in the background. Or reading Sherlock Holmes, sitting in a chair in his apartment. Currently the app is still not it that stage and is more of a tech demo, hence the alpha release. If you have any more questions or you would like me to elaborate on the motivation for creating this, please feel free to ask!

@petrovicstefan Yes, that's exactly what I meant. It is like knowing what we'd get before we give up our email :)

That one doesn't have rift support, and on top of that making an account just to advertise this other game with a similar premise is kinda a dick move wouldn't you agree?
