Workshop: Virtual Reality [clear filter]
Saturday, November 19
 

10:00

VR1) VR Workshop: Vive Jazz
In this 2 hour workshop, I will guide you through creating a sandbox environment for VR in Unity, where we can start messing around in search of great game ideas. We will attempt to create various reusable mechanics that interact in funny ways, and through this process learn a few things about VR development and rapid prototyping.

We will use the HTC Vive, a high-end virtual reality device, and we will have a few of them available to get down and dirty with. Please bring your laptops and a mouse, and please install the latest version of Unity (or even 5.5beta if you prefer) before the workshop, if you want to be productive. Depending on our inspiration, we might manage to make some fun games by the end of the day!
