"Stay home" has become the most pronounced hymn these days. The coronavirus crisis has affected half the world and the only way to stop it is home confinement. Now the days are getting longer and you have to find new entertainment, while the most playful find an escape route in video games
Greg Madison is an interactive space designer with experience in both augmented reality and virtual reality, among other things. And you couldn't think of a better remedy for confinement than making a virtual reality video game for Oculus Quest with your apartment as the main stage. That is to say, the game is a replica of your home, which you can physically walk around with the assurance that you are not going to trip over any wall. He has traced all his furniture and added some targets to shoot, this time yes, with the virtual weapon. It was an idea created from Unity with the same message that the authorities are giving: stay home. And without a doubt this is the best way not to go out, turn your environment into a game.
Quest & @ unity3d. If you have to be locked in your home all day, might as well make it fun!
Available soon on @SideQuestVR for you guys, to try out my experimentations with tangible UI #MadeWithUnity pic.twitter.com/DJPKCzYlhR
