I played a VR game for the first time since the 90s.
Work was quick, so went back to a guy's place. He plays this popular racing sim I'd never heard of before I started this job called iRacing. He's got a homemade driving setup with a VR helmet, forcefeedback wheel, peddles. It was pretty cool once I realised I could wear my glasses underneath the goggles.
Like I guess I get the appeal now, just don't get the want to spend the money on it.
The arms in the game looked like my arms :0
@blueberrysoft This is why I wanted to see cheaper VR! It's just too cool to pass up.
And I really want to develop for it. So much so, I'm just using my mobile phone and 2 joycons are my VR setup currently haha.
I really thought I'd struggle with being so 'shut in' when using the headset. Like I like to be aware of my environment and stuff, if that makes sense, don't like being overwhelmed by one thing anymore. But I was fine.
Hi! Game Making Social is a part of the Fediverse dedicated to being a well-moderated, cosy, friendly place to talk and share stuff about amateur videogame making, and everything surrounding that.
It's kinda an offshoot of Game Making Tools, which is a wiki(+) for a similar audience.
Game makers, game writers, game curators, etc. etc. most welcome!
I also try to maintain a list of not-jerk game-making communities on the wiki, which you might find interesting.
Please read the rules before signing-up :)
PS: We have Animal Crossing, LSD, and Klik & Play emoji :3
