Announcing W.A.R.P, My vrjam entry

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

A couple months ago Oculus finally announced another vrjam.

There's not much to say about it or show off with it yet, but I figure I should make a post about it here at least. So...

I struggled for a couple months to come up with a complete game idea along more traditional puzzle game lines. Finally 1 week before the game jam, I scrapped all the ideas I had, and tried coming up with something different. I had a vague idea for a 3D puzzle platformer, and unlike the other game ideas, it seemed like it had more promise to be ironed out more with additional elements. I spent the next week doing that, and while I sadly can't say it's very unique to VR, it at least is game, and one I should be able to expand on over time.

So yea. Unlike many, I've stayed true to the spirit of a game jam, and didn't start work on it until the start of the jam. Combine that with my lack of funds to buy assets, distractions, and being sick for several days now, I haven't been able to progress very much with it. I submitted a screenshot for milestone one, but it wasn't very showy.

Honestly, I don't know if I'll be able to progress with this rapidly enough over the vrjam to have a real shot at winning anything, but I'm happy I'm getting to try.

When things start coming together more, and I have something worthy of screenshotting I'll post updates here.
