16 VR GAMES
In second half of 2017 in Lune company, along with Sebastian Szlufik I’ve been working on a project consisting of 16 VR mini games (both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive). At the end of December we delivered last game from set. My task was mostly to create assets, level design and preparing scenes in Unity (in different proportions in every game). Bundle contains roller coasters, fear room, simulators, and simple arcade games. Our goal was to create set of event games, where game play would fit in 2-3 minutes. Some games from bundle use assets from Unity AssetStore.
During creation process I had possibility to participate 16 times in pipeline production from start to finish. Just by looking at first and last game I worked on, it is noticeable I’ve progressed a lot.
Short trailer below.
Those games were designed especially for events visited by wide variety of people, so we needed to simplify game play so it would be understandable even for people without any experience with VR. Every game is designed for about 3-4 minutes of game play, to limit queues to the headsets. We prepared placeholders for logotypes and text inside games environments, so whole bundle can be used as some sort of customizable and interactive way of marketing.
I didn’t have a chance to work in every game at the same tasks. Some of them I’ve only counseled. Below is a list of those I’ve had bigger impact on, along with tasks I’ve been responsible for:

Campfire simulator. We have to collect items and light the campfire. In this game I’ve created all static 3d models (except foliage), and also GUI.
