Green Bottle – VR Jam, Friday 8th Nov

Gresley Abas invites you to a green bottle talk with Nick Lowe from  Let’s Make Games Inc.

Nick and his team have been working out of the Gresley Abas workshop studio space. They have been part of a global virtual reality game environment initiative. It’s cutting edge stuff, and we’ve been delighted to share our space with Nick and his team to be a part of this global ‘jam session’…read on below for more of what they have been up to, and what they will be sharing at the next Green Bottle!

 

In August 2013, Perth hosted one of only a handful of official international playtest hubs for the first VR (Virtual Reality) Jam – a long-format, worldwide game jam presented by Oculus and IndieCade. Following a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign, the Oculus Rift VR headset (currently only available as a Developer Kit) has led a new wave of innovative VR technologies. The VR Jam was a huge opportunity for local game developers to create VR content for the Oculus Rift, and for the public to experience the latest VR technology.

 

Let’s Make Games Inc. was able to organise the event on short notice by putting a call out for support on the spacemarket’s MEET MARKET facebook group, which led to contact with Gresley Abas who provided space for a dozen developers and artists to create VR games during the working week, and for over a hundred members of the public to visit on weekends. After three weeks of development, local teams created a half-dozen VR games and prototypes including: a retro-style sled game, a dungeon escape game, and a horror-themed experience.

In this casual presentation and chat, Nick will introduce the Oculus Rift VR headset, discuss how to develop for the latest VR technologies, and demonstrate some locally created VR games and architectural visualisations. There will be a number of Oculus Rift VR headsets available for demonstration purposes, so everyone should have a chance to experience it for themselves!
