(released) Moon Motion: free and open-source toolkit for VR locomotion
I craft moving experiences: virtual reality jetpack physics, diegetic interfaces, and imaginary playscapes.
One small step for room, One Giant Leap for room-scale.
My voyage into the virtual reality space began with a motion-controlled jetpack landing on the moon.
Fueled by the unique flying locomotion, One Giant Leap achieved 100% positive reviews in Early Access. This funded my pursuit of a virtual reality career. The completed game is set to release in 2019.
The booster jet locomotion further inspired me to develop the open-source Moon Motion Toolkit, which modularizes jet physics, handles locomotion loadouts, provides player collision dynamics, and more. The goal of the toolkit is to create a standard for freedom of movement and locomotion customization.
Play The Moon Motion Zone on Itch now to demo the toolkit! One Giant Leap is available on both Steam and Itch.
I placed my collection of digital spacescapes into a VR art gallery, as an experiment to see many of my artworks "physically" for the first time.
Since then I've setup similar galleries for other artists, some including 3D sculptures. If you're an artist and you are interested in having your artwork available in a virtual art gallery with the locomotions of your choice, contact me and we can put it together.
My project has been setup to be reusable, so I can press more projects from it as a template. Additionally, locomotion and player functionality is provided by the Moon Motion Toolkit, allowing for detailed customization of movement schemes and smooth camera movement for portfolio recordings.
