Ruckus Ridge is the first local-multiplayer mini-game tournament built for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive that pits 1 VR player against up to 3 friends in simultaneous combat. Duking it out in a series of 1 vs. 3 and Free for All mini-games, players take turns in the VR headset while the others use regular controllers to play. Players score points by winning minigames and the player with the most points at the end of the tournament takes the victory!

Inspired by classic local-multiplayer games like “Mario Party,” “Fuzion Frenzy,” and “Hidden in Plain Sight,” Ruckus Ridge comes loaded with enough tension-filled mini-game action to put callouses on those baby hands of yours.
Ruckus Ridge features a variety of minigames, maps, and characters, all built exclusively for VR. The underlying tension of each mini-game is that couch players need to accomplish goals in the environment without getting caught by the VR player. Couch players cooperate or compete to achieve victory, and the dynamic between couch players and VR players allows for endless strategic possibilities. Make enemies or alliances… It’s all up to you...
“Ruckus Ridge” is available to all Oculus Rift and HTC Vive owners in April 2016.
With games such as Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes putting an asymmetric spin on virtual reality games, it's only natural that the first big VR party game should continue this trend. Plus, most VR enthusiasts are only going to afford access to one headset, but will want to share VR experiences with their friends.
Enter Ruckus Ridge, an asymmetric party game that pits one person in VR against three other players who are playing on a television with gamepads. The minigames contained within play off the restricted first-person perspective of the player in VR, compared to the potential greater situational awareness offered by top-down or other alternative viewpoints for television players.
The game also rotates out who is in VR for each round, and players compete against each other to score the most points - but must also cooperate when playing together, creating perfect tension for a party game setup.
Developer ForeignVR managed to get Ruckus Ridge Greenlit last year, and the game's Steam Store Page mentions it will be available for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive in Q1 of this year. Of course, you'll also need three gamepads - but if you don't have those, ForeignVR has made a free "gamepad app" that you can use as a substitute.
