Overview: Two years ago we saw the future. Huddled around Palmer Lucky's cluttered desk in 2012, we held a duct-taped device up to our eyes and peered into another world. That moment changed the course of our careers. Soon after, we founded Playful Corp and jumped head-first into the deep end of VR game development. This is our story - from the early days of crazy-rapid prototyping and instant nausea, through the ah-ha moment of third-person VR design and the amazing debut of Lucky's Tale at E3. We'll show you dozens of prototypes, share our spectacular failures, and discuss the surprising successes. Join us as we take a journey through the wild-west frontier of VR game development!
