We wanted to combine the immersion of an open-world RPG (Role Playing Game) with educational & historical information you would find online or with a textbook.
What it does
Travel around in this open-world to learn more about history in this time period. Point at red-sphered NPC's to talk to them. Point at blue-sphered objects to interact with them and get to know them. Point at purple-sphered objects to learn more about them with information generated online. Do a two-thumbs up gesture to generate a quiz that's based on the experiences that you had so far.
How we built it
Unity + Oculus
Challenges we ran into
Gesture interaction with the Oculus
What we learned
Viking 3D models are really cool but hard to implement.
What's next for RPG.edu
Build the entire level out and expand to other eras and include quests.
