Developing a VR multiplayer escape room: behind the scenes of VBI - Lost Connection
VBI: Lost Connection is a VR multiplayer escape room where two players, as VBI special agents, need to cooperate inside Avery’s Virtual World to unfold the story and solve Adam Vogel’s mystery. The experience had to be designed for public spaces, including narrative elements and 2-people enigmas, which has led to specific challenges and solutions given a development time of 2 months. In this session we'll see how the experience has been made with Unreal Engine 4, the best practices followed, the technical integration of Watson Visual Recognition and lessons learned.
