|Session Name:||Creating 'Dr. Grordbort's Invaders' for Magic Leap One|
|Company Name(s):||Magic Leap/Weta Workshop|
|Track / Format:||Game VR/AR|
|Overview:||How do you design levels for the real world? How do you approximate a hardware feature that won't be ready for months? How do you make an intense action game for players of all experience levels in a new medium? 'Dr. Grordbort's Invaders' is the world's first long-form mixed reality action game, and it was created by a brand new team, on an in-development platform, incubated within the walls of an Academy Award-winning physical props company. In this talk, James will discuss how the Weta Gameshop team, born of a collaboration between Magic Leap and Weta Workshop, delivered on their mandate to make a great game while providing feedback on the ever-evolving hardware and software that became the Magic Leap One Creator Edition.|
