Stygian VR

Readous

553 views

      Stygian is a story about a person whose Earth has run it's course and the population is dropping like flies, but they found a way to escape this reality through conscience upload. You now step into the shoes of this person and take control as they make their way through the dimensions. 

   Stygian's goal is to appeal to the emotions and let you experience  things you wouldn't be able to in the real world, which I believe is one of the main goals in VR. Each time you leave a dimension, you should feel like you left something behind, but excited to discover what lies ahead, as each dimension is completely unique, strange, and sometimes dangerous...

 

  • Central rich story accompanied by various paths and danger 
  • Thought provoking puzzles  
  • Beautiful, unique dimensions (3/15-20)
  • Interactive and immersive VR environments  
  • Replay ability! No Stygian play-through will be the same as there are multiple routes and multiple endings! (Enter the wrong dimension and you could be in trouble...)

      It's no secret that what makes or breaks a VR experience is whether or not the player feels immersed in the VR world you've built. Here are a collection of tested guidelines for creating a more captivating VR experience.

      Introduction
      In recent years, virtual reality (VR) technology has progressed exponentially to enable immersive environments in which users feel a heightened sense of realism—that “you’re really there” feeling in the created environment. Across the board, CPU performance, GPU performance, VR headsets’ visual fidelity, and VR-enabled software have all advanced tremendously.
      Games are the most obvious beneficiaries of VR technology and are already beginning to make the most of it. Other software genres can benefit from VR’s immersive capabilities as well, including education, training, and therapeutic usages.
      However, as with many new technologies, it’s easy to implement VR that looks cool on the surface but has fatal flaws that pull you out of the immersive experience or ultimately make you wonder why someone went to the trouble of creating the software. Developers run the risk of having an initial “Oh, wow!” quickly become “What’s the point?”

      Arizona Sunshine* found success in the VR space after following Intel® Guidelines for Immersive VR Experiences. See how they became the fastest-selling non-bundled virtual Reality title to date.

      With a dazzling launch in early 2017 that saw Arizona Sunshine* become the fastest-selling non-bundled virtual reality title to date, and instant recognition as the 2016 “Best Vive Game” according to UploadVR, the zombie-killer game is not just another VR shooter. Combining immersive game play with intriguing multi-player options, this game takes full advantage of VR capabilities to promote playability in both outdoor and underground environments.
      Through its association with Netherlands-based Vertigo Games and nearby indie developer Jaywalkers Interactive, Intel helped add sizzle to Arizona Sunshine by fine-tuning the CPU capabilities to provide end-to-end VR realism. The power of a strong CPU performance becomes apparent with every jaw-dropping zombie horde attack. From the resources available when a player chooses and loads a weapon, to the responsiveness of the surrounding eerie world, the immersive qualities of the VR interface make it easy to forget that it’s just a game.

      Hello everyone
      I would like to introduce you to a game created by me and my friends.
      Below is a link to the aforementioned game,
      I would be grateful for feedback and advice regarding what we can add to the game or change.
      This is our first game, so maybe it doesn't impress, but we hope you like it and then you like our fanpage. 
      Greetings

      The School of Information is accepting applications for the PhD program, for the incoming fall 2019 cohort. We are seeking students with interests in machine learning, natural language processing, text retrieval, virtual/mixed reality, or game development/design.
      Preferred incoming doctoral students for the fall 2019 cohort will bring strong computational skills. Having advanced object-oriented programming skills, experience with machine learning toolkits such as scikit-learn or Keras, or experience with widely used real-time development platforms such as Unity, would be a plus. Instructional experiences are also beneficial, and should be highlighted in application materials, but are not required. Funded positions will be available for select graduate students, those students will receive tuition remission and a stipend in exchange for research- related, grant support, or instructional work.
      The School of Information is an academic unit in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Arizona, Arizona’s only public land grant university. The School’s mission: “As Arizona’s iSchool, we collaborate across disciplines, drive critical research and development, and educate the information intellectuals and professionals of tomorrow to further positive social change that is rooted in the places where we live and that impacts the world.”
      The school and the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences are dedicated to creating a serious, open, free intellectual space for inquiry, one in which faculty, students, staff members, and community partners can participate fully, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status, citizenship status, size, abled status, language, religion, or any other characteristic. Strategically positioned to lead the University of Arizona’s status as a Hispanic Serving Institution, SBS foregrounds our awareness of the deep ancestral footprint of our region’s populations and cultures, including the Tohono O’odham and Pascua Yaqui people whose lands we inhabit. We honor diverse knowledge traditions and lived experiences, and we strive to foster accessibility and equity, the conditions in which our members together can produce new, rigorous, urgent, and evidence-based knowledge
      For more Information, please see: https://ischool.arizona.edu/phd-information.
      With quick questions about the applicant process or application materials, feel free to reach out to our administrative support team through Barbara Vandervelde, barbv@email.arizona.edu.

      After months of hard labour, cross words and more debates that you can shake a relatively large stick at, the Mixed Reality Toolkit finally entered the Beta phase. This marks the first “release” ready for developers to start prototyping, building projects and hacking away to build fantastic Mixed Reality experiences.
      Featuring:
      A new cross-platform architecture Scriptable configuration A new componentized layout Support for WMR and OpenVR right out of the box (Just hit play) And Much, much more. It’s not at feature parity with its predecessor the HoloToolkit, but it showcases a new path / generation for the Toolkit, seeking to be more open, resolve old issues and strive to be the one toolkit to take on the world of Mixed Reality (or Cross-Reality if you prefer). It’s also not recommended for production use just yet (although legend tells, that it’s already being used for future projects by Microsoft and other MR Partners already).
      Dig in, try it out, see what you think and let the team know Good or Bad what you like or would want to see improved.
