Our inspiration was the lack of a Chess game for the GearVR platform and since we are fans of chess and coding, we decided to make our own game
What it does
You can play chess against an advanced AI and choose different environments in which you can experience it. All of this while listening to relaxing music. The game is meant to train your mind in the arts of chess while also fully relaxing yourself in the soothing atmosphere. There are currently 5 environments: Museum, Lonely Island, Volcano, Moon and Underwater.
How we built it
We are building the game in Unity using C#. For the 3D models we are using Blender.
Challenges we ran into
We are not experienced in Unity that much so we have to deal with the Scripting API they provided
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Learning Blender and Unity
What we learned
Unity and Blender. Mostly using the C# Scripting API from Unity
What's next for EnVRo Chess
Finishing it and launching it on the Oculus Store. We'll also be trying to add multiplayer to the game as chess is best played against friends.
How to install
For the installation I have provided a ConstructVR link. Sometimes, building the apk file fails, but I think this is just a problem from ConstructVR. Simply reclick Build inside the app and you will get the apk file in the end
