Half-Life: Alyx Playable Without VR

A video on Twitch from the Valve News Network (NSFW) shows Half-Life: Alyx being played on a flat monitor without the use of a VR headset (thanks Wccftech). This is apparently done through basic control commands, prompting VNN's TylerMcVicker to exclaim, "this is so f**king cool that it just works." The short clip shows him navigating using mouse and keyboard and issuing a command to bring up "fake VR" hands. This is a little janky, but strongly suggests the type of mod to make the game playable without VR as Valve's Robin Walker recently alluded to may come sooner rather than later.
