Huzzah, it’s out-into-the-wild day for VRMT!! A build of v0.1 is now officially live and ready for your downloady goodness, and of course your invaluable feedback. You can grab it right now at defectivestudios.com/vrmt!
You can read all about the project, where it is now, and where we hope it’ll go, in the announcement blog post, but in a nutshell, VRMT is a creation game and worldbuilding tool, where you build the world from the inside. It can be used just for fun to create a space to virtually hang out in (with friends, soon!), or if you’re a game developer / 3D artist / digital maker type, you can use it as a tool to create your scenes.
The project is still VR-with-hands-only, currently requiring an Oculus Rift and Razer Hydra, but we’ll be adding more input (Leap, gamepad, keyboard/mouse) and output (like… normal not-VR screens) in the not-so-far-off future. As well as tons of new ways to build stuff, new artpacks to use, multiplayer, and many many more plans. But even in the very early state it is right now, feedback from testers has been really positive, so we want to let anybody play with it, hang out in their virtual spaces, use it in their projects, and let us know what they’d like to see next.
We’ll be updating regularly with new builds and changelog videos as the project grows and evolves, so grab it now, let us know your feels, and come back soon for more! We can’t wait to see what y’all’ll do with it
