See how to develop your own Virtual Reality Game using Blender, Unity and HTC Vive! Blender is the freely available tool to create 3D characters and objects for your game. See an original 3D character, Apple Man, created from pencil sketch, to 3D model, through rigging, coloring, and animation. Next step is to get the character into a 3D gaming environment. See importing the character model into Unity, also freely available for the personal edition. See some coding in Unity and interact with Apple Man and friends in VR using the HTC Vive headset and controllers.
Tim Remley works in IT and is interested in game development as a hobby. Elements of game design and development help him bond with his son (programming) and daughter (art). Together they’ve tinkered with 2D role playing game development. More recently, Tim has become interested in Virtual Reality (VR) gaming. He bought the family an HTC Vive (okay, it was really for him). He’s been able to demonstrate the VR development pipeline – from original art to modeling, rigging, animation and VR immersion.
