  • DonyTamazone, You were robbed. Your experience was easily in my top 5. I recognized right away that it was all original art paying homage to Blade Runner. I listen to the Blade Runner soundtrack all the time and was really impressed with the origina…
  • (Quote) Great post mortem, Nilspferd. You had a very solid game submission and I was surprised it wasn't a finalist. Like you, I think lack of marketing may have hurt my game submission. I focused more on making a well polished fun and bug free ga…
  • Just wanted to thank everyone that supported the development of this game. Because of the jam, I ended up meeting a lot of cool people online and in real life. That alone made it a worthy endeavor. Shout out to my fellow Portland devs which includes…
  • (Quote) The thing with these types of contests is that you ultimately don't know exactly what the judges were looking for until it's over. Even then, it's kinda cloudy. Same goes for the court of public opinion. So, I feel your frustration, but it'…
  • Congrats to all the finalists! For those that feel left out, get those games in the Oculus Store.
  • Thank you, Eugtank. I definitely want to find time to expand on the idea. More characters, bosses, levels, etc.
  • Wow. Thank you, dignifiedweb. I'm really happy you enjoyed the game. That's why we all make them. On this jam game I really wanted to get a feeling for the entire pipeline and decided to do my own 3D animation and music. So, that you liked those par…
  • Selzier, Thank you for putting together these videos. This is by far the most honest feedback I've seen on VR games. It's invaluable to see exactly where you are looking in the VR world and how you react to it. I'll definitely be using your setup fo…
  • (Quote) HomerS66, thank you for taking the time to check the game out. I'm glad to hear that the performance was great for you. I didn't get access to a GearVR until about midway through the challenge and had to make many changes to get it right. …
  • I've been told that my game, Snow Fight, works well on S6: Snow Fight ChallengePost Snow Fight APK Let me know if you come across any issues, because I definitely want to solve them before trying to get the game in the official store.
  • This is the best game I've played in VR Jam so far. Having such a reactive environment really made the world come alive. The controls were amazingly intuitive and natural. The story and puzzles were fun. You'll definitely get one of the top prizes. …
  • The Katamari/ Ratatouille concept is a fun idea. I liked the theme a lot. The major issue I had was the camera movement causing severe sim sickness. In general locomotion in VR is very problematic. I actually found the rolling around in small steps …
  • I wanted to try this out, but wasn't able to install on Lollipop 5.0.1
  • Solid game mechanic that I really enjoyed. I also like the way you went about giving instructions in a menu free/ non-text way. One thing that bugged me a lot was the level transitions. I appreciate the technical achievement, but felt it detracted f…
  • My honest opinion is that a VR experience with zero visuals felt very underwhelming. However, I don't think your audio focused mechanic is necessarily a bad one. You just need to show something visual and that doesn't mean it will ruin the mechanic.…
  • Selzier, Very cool of you to be doing this for people.
  • I played on Lollipop 5.0.1 and enjoyed the core idea of an audio centric game mechanic. The use of the touchpad headlamp was a great idea too. Although the game seemed very buggy, I see some good potential in developing the game out further. Here ar…
  • branditoson, Do you happen to know if you guys would at least see the submitted link from the ChallengePost form even if the video isn't displaying in the slide show?
  • Thank you for your response branditoson. The video permissions are correct and the link hadn't been changed since it was updated early last week. I've sent a help request to ChallengePost.
  • Yeah, it seems to be a very recent issue since I've seen my video up before today. I'm thinking maybe it's a similar issue to the apk links not updating properly since last night.
  • (Quote) Unfortunately, for me it crashes to the Oculus app after about a 30 second wait.
  • (Quote) I get stuck on the "May take a while to download" scene. I'm on Android version 5.0.1
  • (Quote) Awesome. Thanks again.
  • (Quote) The app installed and loaded successfully. The world is beautifully lit with a lot of cool effects. A couple issues: 1. The frame rate was unbearably choppy and since the game encourages quick head movements to look around it was inducing …
  • (Quote) Thank you Bino, again, for helping to test mine and other apps out. The "tutorial" happens when you first enter the game and a floating sign says "Try to throw a snowball" with a little animated graphic. If you got past…
  • (Quote) Great. Thank you for taking the time to test it.
  • (Quote) Tested the new build, but I still came across the same crash scenario. To be clearer, I hear the music play for only about 1 to 2 seconds and the Unity splash screen never clears.
  • If someone is willing to test my game, Snow Fight, I would be very grateful. Game controls require just the touch pad. I fixed a few small bugs since I last posted. Mostly looking to see that the app installs and that you can successfully get throug…
  • (Quote) Sorry to say I had a couple major issues. First, when trying to install I got a conflicting signature error. This usually occurs when the default player settings for company/product name are used. So just set those to something unique. Aft…
  • Zalandreas, I didn't have a controller to test with. However, your app installed and loaded up just fine. You may want to disable the touchpad camera control (which I assume is there for debugging purposes) since accidentally touching it can be very…
