Intro to Virtual Reality in Unity

Make the leap to VR

This workshop teaches experienced Unity developers how to get started with VR. The project built in the workshop is the Laser Cop Room Scale VR Game. Subjects covered include developing a basic VR game for PC/Mac/Console, optimization techniques, ergonomics, physics and audio for VR. It requires both a headset and controllers, but there is a test script that will allow for in-editor development for participants who did not bring a VR headset with them. Although a gaming project is used as the example in this workshop, the features and functions are applicable to all Unity projects.

In this Workshop, you will gain a complete understanding of:

  • Assets
  • Starting a VR project
  • Core gameplay
  • VR Player setup
  • Enemy setup
