According to an article appearing on UplaodVR, HTC Vive is looking for VR developers to make mini games for The Oasis virtual space. No one is sure how (or even if) developers will be compensated, but the application process looks pretty solid. You need a wechat account, and providing a proposal is also an option.
Any VR dev that is fan of the book and/or movie is probably going to want to get in on this. I found it to be a perfect opportunity. When I seen “Unicorn Ice Polo” in the first 5 minutes of the film, I immediately wanted to be the one to make that game in VR, now it looks like I might have that chance! How convenient!
I have personally been working on a VR horseback riding simulator for the past 3 months, and I have all the assets needed to get the job done. What can I say? I love ponies.
Now if I could just get my hands on those new knuckle fitting controllers… We’ll be swinging mallets in not time.
