VR Training Workshop, Brighton, UK

10:00 - 17:00 November 27, 2017 in Brighton, United Kingdom

VR Training Workshop

In this intermediate level workshop, participants will learn to get started in VR.  The project built in the workshop is the Laser Cop Room Scale VR Game. Subjects covered include developing a basic VR game for PC/Mac/Console, optimization techniques, ergonomics, physics and audio for VR.  It requires both a headset and controllers, but there is a test script that will allow for in-editor development for participants who did not bring a VR headset with them.  Although a gaming project is used as the example in this workshop, the features and functions are applicable to all Unity projects.

On completion of this workshop, participants will be able to :

  • Develop a basic VR game for PC/Mac/Console
