    My students are making games that work on both the Go and Rift from a single Unity project.
    There are a few main things to consider:
    - 3DOF (Go) vs 6DOF (Rift) for the headset
    - One 3DOF controller on the Go and two 6DOF controllers on the Rift
    - The Go is WAY less powerful. You'll need to be extremely careful of performance. The Go has the same CPU/GPU as the first Google Pixel phone, but VR takes a much bigger hit to performance than a typical phone game. Low detail, low res textures, low particle count, low overdraw and reduced shader complexity are the order of the day.

    I don't know about Unreal, but with Unity it's very easy to have both supported. As long as the oculus sdk is added to both build targets in the vr settings, you can just build for both and it will mostly "work". But of course hand controllers really need custom code to support them fully for each target.
