Our team is passionate about American history and wanted to honor a great American through a new lens.
What it does
Its a VR educational experience where you can experience what it was like to be Paul Revere, the night he made history.. This is all done through Virtual Reality so gear up and find a fast horse.
How I built it
Unity, C#, HTC VIVE, and Steam VR
Challenges I ran into
This is our second attempt at development in any VR platform. The challenges we encountered were the most difficult when working with items in VR. Mapping out the game stage trying to make Paul Revere route as real as possible, our horse engine, and a few sense manipulations.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We set out to accomplish a comfortable VR experience and I believe we were able to do so. More importantly we had a chance to highlight a great American that help shape history.
What we learned
We did a deep dive into American history and got to learn who Paul Revere was as a man, on and off the battle field. The team also learned more about sense manipulations, particle system, retro fitting assets beyond its original purpose.
