    Seems as this is lesson 4 of "Unity for all"

    Think about what they could have done with it. You could have literally played A board game of Jumanji with random players in VR, getting thrown into hilarious Jumanji like situations from the original movie.

    Or, they could have made it a full blow, adventure game in the style of Jumanji, where the player has to solve the puzzles and survive hectic situations.

    yet they chose to make this.. a Graphically dated, top down view of miniature people.. moving along on premade paths? It's just bad..Like..why would you even make this to promote VR..When you have so many better options available for a VR experience.

    Which is why all the best developers in the world use the Unreal Engine instead :D

    This makes bad VR games look good in comparison.
  • snowdogsnowdog Posts: 7,287 Valuable Player
    This makes the Justice League one look good lol :o:D:D:D

    I'm assuming this is going to be a freebie. They were REALLY taking the piss with the Justice League one and charging for the bloomin thing :o

    That's failtastic. Seems it was Sony that pulled the plug on it though, not steam. But you have to give Sony some credit, I think that might be the first PC game they have ever made, VR or not. As far as "my first unity" projects go, I've seen far worse. Still wouldn't download it for free.

    Perhaps Sony's goal is to make the new goat simulator in VR  >:)
