Not many virtual reality (VR) developers can claim to already be working on their second project for the technology, but E McNeill is among them. Last year saw him release one of the first full titles for the Gear VR mobile head-mounted display (HMD) in cyber hacking experience, Darknet. Along with a port of this title to the Oculus Rift, McNeill is also currently working on his next title, a tabletop real-time strategy videogame named Tactera. VRFocus recently got the chance to chat with the developer about these projects.
In the interview below McNeill provides an update on the Oculus Rift version of Darknet, as well as describing his experience of launching on Gear VR late last year. He also touches upon some of the features fans can expect to see in the full version of Tactera, which was originally entered into Oculus VR’s mobile VR jam earlier in the year.
VRFocus will continue to follow McNeill’s work closely, reporting back with the latest updates on it.
