Interest in the game's aesthetic, and an opportunity to use cutting edge technology usually outside our range of acquisition.
What it does
Virtual Reality 80s style skateboarding game.
How we built it
Built from the ground up using Unity, with development kits from Leap Motion and Oculus Rift, alongside gyroscopic user input through a custom made rigged skateboard. Also a live web accompaniment.
Challenges we ran into
Most of the team's unfamiliarity with Unity. No sleep.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Creating a game that's fun, which not only entertains us, but incites excitement and interest in those around us.
What we learned
Wider unity skills. The complexities of peripheral interfaces. Problem solving can be undertaken during extreme tiredness.
