R.I.P. VR Toyroom Greenlight

01.12.2016 - 24.04.2017: VR Toy­room Green­light

Last Mon­day we fi­nal­ly took down our Green­light page for VR Toy­room. A lot changed in the past two months:
We moved to UE4, start­ed a new project, par­tic­i­pat­ed in the Spring #UE4­jam…

VR Toy­room was cre­at­ed us­ing a cus­tom game en­gine which pro­vid­ed great per­for­mance, but was the main bot­tle­neck dur­ing game de­vel­op­ment. When­ev­er we want­ed to use an en­gine fea­ture, we had to cre­ate it first!

Now that we switched to UE4, we start­ed new projects and while VR Toy­room is not en­tire­ly out of our hearts, port­ing it to UE4 is rather un­like­ly to hap­pen. While it was def­i­nite­ly fun, it con­sist­ed of a lin­ear set of tiny chal­lenges, was there­fore pret­ty short and did not pro­vide a lot of re­play val­ue.

In­stead, we look at what lies ahead: This years la­bor day will be an im­por­tant one for us! ;)
