SWVRC 2015: ‘players and their first VR experience’ with Bossa Studios Liveblog

Everyone remembers their first time in virtual reality (VR). For many it will be a make or break situation about how they think about the tech in the future. One bad VR experience and it’s easy to quickly lose enthusiasm for the technology. That’s what Henrique Olifiers of Bossa Studios will be discussing during his ‘They who matter: the players and their first VR experience’ session at today’s South West Virtual Reality Conference (SWVRC) in Bristol, UK. VRFocus is liveblogging the talk as it happens.

Bossa Studios is mostly known for Surgeon Simulator, its twisted videogame in which players perform complex surgeries while fighting against limited controls. The title features support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) on PC and plans to add support for the Project Morpheus HMD on PlayStation 4 in the future. The company is also working on another VR project. VRFocus will be delivering all the latest from SWVRC 2015 throughout the day.
