We’ve released a game for the Oculus Mobile VR Jam 2015! The name of the game is Rainbow Smasher. The concept is online, pure-PVP, cross-platform multiplayer. The main launch is targeted at the GearVR, a chassis for a Samsung Note 4 (or 6, now) that turns the phone into a neat little VR headset. We didn’t make it into the list of finalists for the jam, but we’re definitely proud of what we’ve made.
I’ll be releasing some future articles about GearVR rendering optimization and debugging later on, as those were some of the primary challenges we faced when designing and coding for the device. In the meantime, you can play the game at our page, even if you don’t have a GearVR or Oculus Rift! Check out our site for the game at http://rainbowsmasher.com/
The game had its genesis when some friends and I got together to randomly build something in Unity, and we elected to go for an online PVP 3rd person shooter. Unrealicorn Tournament turned into Rainbow Smasher! Now, we’re looking to take the project to a finished state and release it on the Oculus store!
