    Had to do a bit of looking around your web site and what info I found about your game/s sounds (and looks) fantastic! Can't wait to see more.

    So, basically it's an art gallery with your arts in it?!?

    Powergrid is starting out with that, and it will regularly feature Astrogun art on our projects as we work on them. Astrogun's roster of collaborators is growing each month. For example on Project CIDER ( http://cidergame.com ) the art team went from 1 (just me) to 5 in a week (3 3D art graduates in England, a character modeler in Holland, and a concept artist in Singapore). We're separated by oceans and continents, but in Powergrid we can come together. As we make stuff for the game, such as a new character model for the hero, I want to showcase them in Powergrid. And who knows what new projects we'll be inspired to do, so this provides a space to showcase anything and everything.

    Beyond that, the goal is to expand it over time and with patron support to become a VR art studio and artists' community. This is the Pre-Alpha first pass that basically lays the groundwork and establishes the space. A big priority for October is to try to get multiplayer functionality integrated (avatars, voice chat, etc...) and later Hydra / STEM integration. It'd be cool to try getting interactive art creation tools integrated, so you can go to a room with a giant canvas or a 3D canvas and make holographic art-- hopefully also with friends you know or new friends you'll meet in Powergrid.

    All sorts of possibilities for where this could go. I'd be mainly interested in everyone's ideas now that this is launched. What would YOU like to see in a virtual reality art gallery / club?

    A way to maybe pipe in a DJ system. Something that could connect to the server and stream music in.

    Yeah I'm going to reach out to Spotify and see if there's something we can work out! Or if anything, some way to have the audio visualizer system in the club react to whatever music you've already got going on in the background (like via iTunes, etc...).

    Hey no sweat! A fan created his own walkthrough video and uploaded it.

    Checking out the future of clubbing in virtual reality
    Taking a sneaky peak at the future of clubbing in virtual reality. This is in early alpha stages so it's not complete by any means! Youtube does not capture the amazing feeling of actually being inside this environment!

    I'm working on an official video next. All patrons who back the project now in pre-alpha to help fund development will get free updates forever as we evolve it over time. http://powergrid.astrogun.com

    Enjoy!
