Shapshot VR – Developer Interview with GIANT SCAM

Avatar

Published

on

We sat down with BIG SCAM to talk about their latest project, Snapshot VR.

Snapshot VR, the latest project from GIANT SCAM is an arena shooter played entirely in virtual reality. Set to release in August, the development team has just about wrapped their work on the title, and joined us live to talk about it. We spoke with GIANT SCAM in a lengthy interview, where we learn all sorts of details about Snapshot VR’s development.

Hosted by our own CEO and Editor-in-Chief Asif Khan, we learned a plethora of information about game development during our interview with GIANT SCAM. Making online multiplayer games that run smoothly is already a monumental undertaking on its own. Doing it in vr? It can feel like the ultimate challenge. GIANT SCAM speaks to this during the interview. “UNet has been a mess” a developer stated when talking about the troubles of making the game work online. The developer goes on to share that they’ve had to implement their netcode stack twice to try and better the online experience.

One of the biggest hurdles with vr is accessibility. Virtual reality just isn’t commonplace in most homes like your standard consoles, or even PCs. Add onto that the fact that there are a handful of separate vr headset producers as well as games specifically compatible with them, and it gets even trickier. GIANT SCAM is looking to make Snapshot VR available for as many devices as possible. In the interview, the developers confirm that Snapshot VR will be playable. with any headset compatible with Steam VR. While it may not be available on the Oculus Quest at launch, they’re already working on getting it ported to the headset down the road.

Onward Oculus Quest Multiplayer Livestream: Tactical VR FPS Action!

For today’s livestream we’re playing realistic military sim VR shooter, Onward on Oculus Quest! If you’re curious about how we livestream the way we do then look no further than this handy guide for general tips and this guide specific to our Oculus Quest setup.


Onward aims to be the ultimate VR FPS for those after an authentic-style military simulation. This is more like Ghost Recon or Rainbow Six than Call of Duty. Now that it’s been out for a full day we can verify the gameplay is just as fun as ever and we can’t wait to see how it evolves on Quest.

Our Onward on Oculus Quest VR livestream is planned to start at about 11:00 AM PT and will last for around an hour or two, give or take, depending partially on how well-behaved my small toddler child will be while left alone. We’ll be hitting just our YouTube and I’ll be streaming from my Oculus Quest, which will be using a Chromecast Ultra wireless cast signal, plugged into a Capture Card, to get the footage to my PC. I’ll do my best to keep up with chat by checking my phone when possible.

If you missed our launch day stream, you can catch that right here from yesterday.

You can watch the stream embedded via YouTube right here. Set a reminder if you’re reading this early!

You can see lots of our past archived streams over in our YouTube playlist or even all livestreams here on UploadVR and various other gameplay highlights. There’s lots of good stuff there so make sure and subscribe to us on YouTube to stay up-to-date on gameplay videos, video reviews, live talk shows, interviews, and more original content!

And please let us know which games or discussions you want us to livestream next! We have lots of VR games in the queue that we would love to show off more completely.

Polybius Dev’s Next Psychedelic VR Game Is Moose Life, Arrives In August

Avatar

Published

on

The developer of Polybius is bringing its latest VR game to Steam this August.

Llamasoft, a UK-based studio headed up by famed game designer Jeff Minter, is launching Moose Life on August 12th. A Steam page for the game is already up and running, which confirms the game will support Rift, Vive and Index. Check out some trippy gameplay Minter himself recorded earlier in the year.

If you know Llamasoft, then you’ll probably know what to expect from Moose Life. As with Polybius, Tempest 4000 and others before it, the game is a psychedelic ‘trance shooter’ in which players are subjected to a blaze of neon glory as they blow enemies into colorful neon particles. It’sd rooted in arcade origins with an emphasis on giving players a strong audio/visual sensation. Judging by that video, it’ll certainly achieve that goal.

As the name suggests, this time around you’ll be playing as a moose. At the very least, we couldn’t get you to name another VR game that casts you as a moose, right?

“Moose Life is the latest step on our journey into euphoric trance,” the developer notes on the Steam page. “Created in the style of an 80s arcade game, but in fully immersive 3D/VR. You’ll feel like you are inside the mind of Eugene Jarvis Himself.”

It’s reassuring to see the team still making VR titles. In 2018, Minter noted that its last VR game, the then-PS4/PSVR-exclusive Polybius hadn’t “made a penny”. The game later came to Steam, though it’s not clear if it found more success there.
