We wanted to create an immersive that uses VR technology. We are unable to get our hands on the Oculus Rift, so we used the Myo to create a "Temple Run"-esque game using Hand Gestures. Using the Unity Game Engine and our wild imagination, we created a Runner Game featuring Rainbow Horses, Trolls, and Demon Kittens.
What it does
The game uses the Myo wrist capturing controller or your Arrow Keys to move you around rocks, while trying to run from a nasty Earthborn Troll. You use the space button or a Hand-Open gesture to shoot fireballs at the demonic kittens.
How I built it
We built this game using the Unity 3D Game Engine in C#
Challenges I ran into
We had issues with getting the Myo to work with Unity. In addition, the Myo also did not have the best gesture recognition so it was hard to make the game work with the Myo.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
- A working 3D Unity Game
- Psychedelic crazy features
- Epic music
What I learned
- We learned how to make an awesome 3D Unity game
- Using the Myo Controller
- The Biology of an Earthborn Troll
What's next for Escape the Troll on the Rainbow
Escape the Troll on the Rainbow 2: The Troll Returns... and better collision optimization.
