This is will be a busy week for the virtual reality (VR) industry. To start the week the TechCrunch Disrupt event has been going on with new VR technology being showcased, and today will see the start of the Oculus Connect 2 conference taking place. Aside from these events developers have been releasing lots more information on their projects. Released today by California-based Reload Studios, is the first episode of Toon Talk, a discussion on the up-coming VR title World War Toons.
The first episode hosted by Community Manager Will Lewis, talks to Associate Producer Cory Gustke about his role within the company, the videogame and his background within the industry prior to joining the studio.
After asking Cory five questions which will be a feature of further episodes, the pair commenced the Street Fighter Challenge. Using a heavily modified Street Fighter arcade machine in the office Cory is tasked with seeing how far he can get. His effort is then put on a leader board for the next staff member who is interviewed to beat. The final segment of the episode is called ‘Rough Draft’, where the developer reveals something new from the videogame. Revealed is the M5 Stewart Tank.
Reload Studios will be at TwitchCon this Friday 25th with a stream from the Kappa stage beginning at 2:30pm PDT.
