For today’s VIP Spotlight, we reached out to Zeshin (aka Heroes n’ Fools) for his thoughts on VR gaming.
What has been your favorite Raw Data moment so far?
I would have to say seeing the opening to the first level was my favorite moment, watching the creepy robot move around and breaking the glass. The first time I saw it, the dude creeped me out. Although each time after I can’t help but laugh at its snappy motion :3
Really any of the Elder Scrolls games. I really just want a fantasy/magic game where I can go around and explore wide open areas, go up and talk to NPCs, and have a big epic adventure. Some of the limitations of VR kinda makes that hard to do, but I think if a game used the run in place movement (teleport optional) and smart controls/inventory it could be done.
What brand new concept would you love to see in VR that hasn’t happened yet?
Besides a fleshed out version of the game I mentioned above, I would really love a Doodle God-esque sandbox game… something where you’re combining elements to create a toy essentially that you can use to build/destroy your environment. So like you would get the base elements, you could make a little area with earth, ponds with water, and set everything on fire, etc. But if you combine your water from one hand to the earth in another you get ice or mud or something. Overall it’d be a shorter experience, but the more combinations you could make the longer and more interesting the game play. Either that or a Magika-esque wave game where you have to combine elements in your hands to make spells to destroy your foes.
