We hadn’t taken Shu to many large events in a long time, the game has come such a long way in the months leading up to Rezzed. We ran time trial competitions to give players a feel of the speed-running aspect of the game, with merchandise and glory as added incentive.
With Esper 2 now being available on the Oculus Rift, we took that along with us too, as well as the Gear VR version. It’s always interesting to see how people will react to VR and a game we built specifically for it.
It was the first time that Gang Beasts had been shown both with networked multiplayer and within Virtual Reality, we even brought along one of our network coders in case any problems arose that only he could fix.
We had a fantastic time and to make things even better, Gang Beasts, Gang Beasts in VR and Esper 2 all made in into the top 20 EGX Rezzed fan favourites.
A big thank you to anyone who came along had fun with us, it was a blast and we are looking forward to getting out there again.
