The Oculus VR Jam starts today. Wo0t! I've been looking forward to this ever since it was first announced. Spent the last month getting used to my Gear VR and I'm rarin' to go.
I've been planning my entry all month, but suddenly I want to go an entirely different direction. I was thinking of an interactive garden experience where the player would plant and tend their own little garden. Not really a game, just a fun sandbox style experience. Now I'm struck with an idea to create something a little more on the eye candy/artsy side of things.
I've been tossing around ideas for a sort of virtual art gallery for a while. Not a bunch of rooms full of RL artwork, but something that takes advantage of the virtual, interactive nature of VR. Flashy particle effects, moody settings, interactive experiences. It'd be a great chance to experiment. It would also fit well with the time-limited Jam. I could lay in the foundations and then add sections and experiences as time permits.
I'm going to try and post a few developer diary videos as jam progresses so watch this space (or my Twitter feed) for more updates.
