Session Name Spatial Storytelling Lessons from 'Job Simulator' and 'Rick and Morty VR'
Speaker(s) Alex Schwartz, Devin Reimer
Company Name(s) Owlchemy Labs, Owlchemy Labs
Track / Format Game VR/AR
Overview Telling stories and interacting with characters in VR is a deep challenge with little precedent and many ways to ruin the illusion for players. Characters need to be able to interrupt one another seamlessly, avoid staring and awkward expressions, and character interactions need to work properly for players of any height, to name just a few. Owlchemy Labs shares tips to avoid uncanny valley, increase empathy with character interactions, and cover gobs of actionable lessons learned through the development of VR titles 'Job Simulator' and 'Rick and Morty Simulator: Virtual Rick-ality'.
