I'm happy to present you my latest VR experience, Neos: The Universe!
, now also for DK2!
Developed for the 2015 VR Jam, this application offers an epic narrative experience that walks you through forty magnitudes of scale within a few minutes
, showing you marvels of the universe and the human journey through it, but also lets you explore on your own
, smoothly sliding between different scales and exploring all the interesting content using the touchpad on your GearVR or scroll button on your mouse. And be careful where you look at, you might get a surprise!VR Jam page with APK download
DK2 builds:Windows (219 MB)OS X (219 MB) - UNTESTED!

This demo is also a technical showcase, pushing the limits of mobile VR to show you variety of structures that breathe with life using custom tailored shaders and even sneakily employing lightfields
(more on them is coming soon!) - how else would we show complex structures that require hundreds of thousands of polygons to represent on your mobile phone?
Neos: The Universe is a continuation of the World of Comenius project, which allowed you to travel into the human body, take it apart, play around with 3D geometry or sketch your ideas with your hands
a demonstration of the educational potential of VR and it's one of many precursors to a much bigger project I've been working on for months: Neos
. A world where you can unleash your creativity and curiosity without restrictions of the real world. There's much more to come, so keep an eye out!
And of course, comments and feedback is welcome!
(Btw, I also have another small game entry if you want to check it out, it's not as polished as this, but could be fun maybe! Check out FlowerGuy!
