Each year, MTBS has a presence at the Game Developers Conference (GDC), and 2013 is no different! Kris Roberts will be on the scene looking for the latest that developers and innovators have to offer in gaming.
Kris is still finalizing his schedule, so if you want to get featured on Meant to be Seen, email
to confirm arrangements. We have a strong interest in immersive technologies like VR, AR, and 3D of course!
Now this is something to be proud of! Denny Unger, Creative Director of Cloudhead Games and longtime MTBS member has revealed an active Kickstarter for The Gallery: Six Elements. This scifi spelunking adventure is being specially customized for the Oculus Rift SDK and VR experience. Just watching the tech demo will showcase how important the independent game developers are for shaping future technology and rethinking the way games are put together.
Sorry for being so late to the party. The MTBS team was traveling and getting set to make some announcements. In the meantime, here are some of the big stories which are very popular in our forums right now.
The first bit of news (or belated news) is that Doom 3 is NOT getting included with the Oculus Rift SDK. MTBS actually knew about this some time ago, but we wanted to leave it to Oculus to announce and make preparations for. They obviously did a great job because Rift owners are getting a choice of either Steam or Oculus Store credits in the place of Doom 3. Given the immersive nature of the Rift, and the scariness of Doom 3 in 3D, there were fears that early VR coronaries could stifle Oculus' sales in the near future. Half kidding, of course. Don't panic! MTBS members already got the source code on Github and are working on getting a community version working.
