Work hard, play hard
When some in-house R&D on character AIs grew into the concept for a wacky VR shooter game, we gave our dev team the opportunity to build the game fully and launch it at the Norwich Gaming Festival 2017 – driving skill development and keeping our team entertained in the process. The team quickly devised an in-house interaction system for HTC VIVE, then planned out and built a tutorial and the first phase – giving the game an arcade-like structure with increasing waves of difficulty.
The game involved a time portal, hungry velociraptors, several weapons, a lot of ammo, a T-rex, two beleaguered tommy soldiers and an Ancient Egyptian pyramid. The aim? To fight off the dinosaurs and save your friend. The game was launched as a free download on the Steam Store in conjunction with its official launch at the Norwich Gaming Festival, where it was played by hundreds of gamers and featured on regional news. Within 24 hours, it was the second most popular free to play VR game and, within two months, had been downloaded over 44,000 times.
