VR Ice Climbing is COOL! (Unity 5 Tutorial)

Trying a different approach this week. Instead of building from scratch, we are going to talk about how we built an Ice Climbing prototype and take a suggestion from the audience on what to build on top of this. This prototype was built off of our climbing prototype (with some slight modification). We used the SteamVR Interaction System and and we will highlight the challenges and trade-offs in the design.

Get the project on Github!

How To: Unity Fallout VR VATS Live Tutorial

With E3 right around the corner and the release of Fallout VR coming soon, we figured we might as well do a tutorial on creating the targeting system VATS. We will cover how to slow down time, highlight body parts, shoot bullets and put our own spin on VATS. We ditch the percentage system in favor of an aim and shoot approach but if you really want percentages, join the stream and chime in – we’ll build the system on the fly!

Building Hadoken VR From Scratch

By far, this has been one of our most enjoyable concepts to make! If you have ever played Street Fighter or watched Dragon Ball, you know how epic it is see giant energy blasts. But being able to actually do it in Unity, is on a whole different level. We will go over Unity’s particle system, using your hand controllers to scale it, and then releasing it. We will also play around with one handed vs two handed energy blasts. Additionally, we are excited to have Liv and Jazmin from High Fidelity join the stream during the break.

Building the Zelda Stasis Mechanic from Scratch

Recently, I have seen quite a few clips from Zelda BOTW and one of the interesting mechanics they have is the ability to freeze time and apply forces during a set window. Looked like a perfect experience for VR as well, so let’s build it. This will be similar to the boxing tutorial with a few tweaks to make it work smoothly.
