Let Me Help

In this project that lasted for 11 weeks, we had to bring the virtual world and reality together.

We did this in a coop VR game with two controllers we designed and built ourselves.

One player would have a VR headset on and finds himself in a maze. He sits in a wheelchair, which he can use as a controller to move around the maze. The other player would have the same maze in front of them, but then in real. In that version the player can see the monsters move around the maze, with lights indicating where they are. This player also has three blocks, which he can place inside the maze on multiple spots. By doing this, doors will close in the virtual maze at the same places. Both players have to work together to get to the finish without being caught. One player has to protect the other by barricading the paths for the monsters and give directions. Communication is essential.

In this project I had the role of team leader and (level)designer. If you’d like to read about the process, click here.
