Why, yes, we do virtual reality! 🙂 We were honored to be invited to Earth Day TX 22-24 April 2016 in Dallas with our esteemed partner, Mission Blue. We showed our first Oculus Rift VR build at the show, as well as our conventional Windows/Mac version of the game. Wow! There was a line at the booth all weekend long! It’s a blast to see people react as if they are really diving above the reef with their guide, Dr. Sylvia Earle.
We are used to a friendly reception to the game, but the sheer joy emanating from people who try our VR version is overwhelming. We are thrilled that we took the time and attention to detail to craft a beautiful, accurate, living dive experience and that VR technology enables us to crank up the realism even more. It’s an incredibly exhilarating time to be part of the gaming industry, as well as help people understand more about – and hopefully be inspired to protect – the ocean.
Our spring is loaded with presentations to students in Western Washington schools, as well as iFest Seattle (14 May), Power of Play (Bellevue WA, 20-21 May), and E3 (Los Angeles, 16-18 June). Drop by those shows or contact us if you’d like us to come to you, in-person or virtually. 😀
