Constructing Endlessness

October 20, 2019

What a week. While I was constantly building features into the Maze VR world builder I knew that one topic will not go away: the transitioning between the rooms. I had already thought about the three different options in a blog post before and looked at their pros and cons. More and more I get […]

World Building – Snapping

October 19, 2019

With the Maze VR world builder constantly learning new tricks, I had somehow forgotten about one really important time-saving feature.

A New Quest

August 3, 2019

It’s been two and a half years since I actively developed for VR. I have a good excuse though. He is now two and a half years 🙂 And now as time for my own endeavours is slowly coming back, the Oculus Quest was released. I have to admit, I was instantly intrigued as I […]
