This hack is a distinct, VR-focused sequel to an Android game we already made, Splitspace. We wanted to use VR in our hack, and decided to set it in the context of our previous release. Our game has nostalgic 8-bit graphics, which we felt is an aesthetic rarely explored in VR applications. At the end, our project was awesome, and we will probably continue to work on it even after the Hackathon.
This project is an Android game that must be used with a phone-compatible VR headset. This game strives to explore the possibilities of VR in a gaming context. All-in-all, the game is targeted towards consumers who are interested in the possibilities of VR and VR gamers who are looking for a unique experience.
The game is programmed in Android Studio with Kotlin and we tested the game with an MLH-lended Samsung GearVR.
The VR system was difficult to learn.
We mastered the craft of programming in VR, which is a subject not many developers have even had experience with. We also launched a beautiful website for our game which can help to market our game in the future as we continue to develop it.
We learned about coding with Android tilt sensors and VR on Android.
We will continue to develop it and will publish it later in the future.
