So, first things first, GameCity is amazing! If you like games, play, learning, hanging out with cool peeps and making new friends you should get your good self there next year. I had the pleasure of showing DEEP over the course of 3 days. The original plan was to do 2, but to my surprise and delight, people wanted to see more. Even better, 2 people told me that is is the best VR experience they have ever had.

During the second day I filmed 8 of the players right after they finished up. Have a look at what they had to say.

DEEP - It's alive!

Woo! It's working and I am excited. You can now move about and explore the environment. An ugly basic environment yes, but that will be changing very soon. I am really happy with the results. Maybe no one else will like the game, but I am really really proud of this little project. 

I will try and capture some video for tomorrows post, even if it is just a vine or something. If you are interested in testing the game in the coming weeks, get in touch and we can try and sort something out. 

The main challenge for me now is to stay focused and work on the tuning. There will be no more sexy new features to add for a while, just slow, diligent number tweaking. I need to get the floaty feeling just right. 

Here are some fresh sketches. The little fish guys is the first model that will be going into the game. Can't wait to see how he looks.
