Every few years, a new technology comes along and takes the game industry by storm. In 2017, Virtual Reality is that technology. This is your chance to be on the cutting edge of the “next big thing” before the markets are saturated and competition becomes fierce. Learn the VR technologies available while you build 4 games in 8 weeks. Maybe you have no experience making games and maybe you have a VR kit that you haven’t mastered or made games for yet. All are welcome.
This course will begin with virtual reality design principles and a Unity 3D game engine refresher. You’ll then discover the differences between the most popular and approachable VR platforms. By the end of this course, you will be able to design games specifically for virtual reality, regardless of technology. Most importantly you will make 4 games using VR headsets. You’ll leave this course with 4 games you built, 2 as a group and 2 on your own. All projects are yours to keep and iterate on to ultimately release if you’d like.
