Session Name:

Future Realities Summit: A Case for Relaxing VR


This is a call to action for relaxing from two industry veterans with over 35 years of experience combined. Learn why they believe the world wants and needs more relaxing virtual reality experiences. Shawn Patton and Melanie Harke explore what relaxing really means (at least to them), illustrate a brief overview of the state of VR games and relaxing games from across all platforms, make the case for why relaxing games are so important to the world right now, and examine why VR is the best platform for them. This session will be presented with plenty of data and research, examples from VR games they have worked on, personal anecdotes, and optimism for a relaxing VR future.
