If you, like me, love VR, grew up collecting hotwheels, and thought slotcars were super cool, Or have little ones that do, my project might be of some interest
What is it? Well it’s a slotcar racing game… only sprinkle in mario kart drifting/jumping, and that had a baby with binding of isaac… and it’s VR. I after the feels, of opening a massive/awesome new toy on christmas morning. I’m only targeting the Quest for the time being, as that’s the lowest end device, scaling up is always easier.
So is this a [PROPOSAL]? No, not yet. This is a bit of my “Hello World” to this community, and really the creative economy/dao/nft world as a whole. I’m only in the discovery phase, and I need to learn more before I feel comfortable pitching something to this group. So far, I am in love with this idea that the peoples are the ones supporting the creatives, bypassing the greedy suits. So instead, I plan on taking you along this journey of mine (If I’m allowed), by posting some fun updates here. The goal is, end of year have a demo running on the quest. At that point I can share the demo here, and see what happens.
Why am I building this thing? - Because I want it. That’s really about it. I’ve spend my whole career, working on things that none of the creators actually want…Yes I’ve worked at EA. So, my mission is to make something that I would buy myself. I believe that if I want it badly enough that I would pay for it, others will.
Well that sounds awesome, but what kind of person make such a thing? Great question, I’m a maker I worked in the tv/film/games world, and have since I was 19 (now much older/greyer). Over the years, I’ve been scooping up skills I’ve been able to get my hands on. I’ve been a pro in each categories:
public enum JobTitles
3D CHARACTER ARTIST,
…so all the bits you would need to know to be a solo dev Was this my plan all along!!! YES.
