    In the same vain as YM's Vive Adventures, I'm going to toss up a thread to show off what I've done, things I find cool, etc. With a bunch of Vive (or maybe) announcements coming tomorrow, figured it wouldn't be a bad time.

    To start off, I decided to make a light reflection/combination game. It's not all that super or innovative, but it's a good start and has the potential for a pretty decent experience. I've made 2 videos of what I've achieved so far with the game.




    So far I've been pretty excited by what I've been able to do, and see what others are doing. Vive's pretty solid, though has its quirk. It looks like many of my issues are being resolved in the next version coming out, so that'll be good.

    Anywho. I don't have a right-proper blog, so I figured I'd just post here in a thread. Comment or not if you want, I just wanted a place to toss everything together for reference.

    Now that all the features are implemented to some degree, I've started to explore the environment I'd like to have the game be in. The current idea is that you're light-pipe repair person, and you have to reconnect the cities lighting, so the environment is pretty urban, and basically you'll be in a channel with a city-scapeish thing over head. I'm not too sure I like it, but I'm going to explore it a bit and make some proto-assets and roll with it.

    Few more things I need to come up with solutions for, but for basically 2 weeks of work, the progress hasn't been bad. I'm quite pleased with it.

    Additionally, I'm working blocking out the artstyle a bit. This is the current idea I have that I don't completely hate.

    Kind of going for the paneled industrial look. Lots of places for things to hid. Artificial depth.

    reminds me of the HL2 Citadel interior crossed with the portal BTS areas

    Another video.


    Next video (#5) will be getting a UI up so that you can select puzzles to do
    Video #6 is when I hope to implement music/sounds of some sort and new obstacles.

    Update #5 is here, but it's old.

    Look at Update #6 instead!

    TF2 in VR is cool.
    TF2 in VR as a scout is cool, if you don't mind throwing up.

    That is all.

    I recent got the Rift and Touch controllers for development. I decided I needed to test out the dev pipeline, so made this quick demo.

    That was actually the original idea, but I just didn't want to deal with AI or MP right now (ie; I don't know how to). So it's just a practice thing, I may expand upon it later.
