Prof. Dr. Eike Langbehn: Frost Mortem – Bending Space without Bumping into Each Other [Tech + Research]
November 12 @ 10:45 - 11:30
Frozen Factory is a cooperative puzzle game for standalone VR headset for two co-located players who share a 5×3 m play space. Both players slip into the role of two penguin workers, in a world that seems to be a vast ice cream factory. However, they are actually tiny penguins inside a Frozen Factory branded vending machine!
In this talk, we want to reflect the development of the game and share insights that we gained while working on a title with a lot of innovative interaction techniques. The game is entirely built for standalone VR headsets and does not require any wires, tracking stations or controllers. Instead, we are using hand-tracking and redirected walking techniques which guide the players on paths in the virtual world that differ from those in the real world.
