Intel GameDev at VRDC 2016

As a Diamond Sponsor of the Virtual Reality Developer’s Conference, Intel showcased a number of new VR technologies live in San Francisco.  Featured VR Games included Arizona Sunshine and The Unspoken, see below for more.

The Intel GameDev program helps developers:

  • CREATE the most immersive VR experiences on Intel platforms
  • LEARN how to use processors for more compelling VR experiences
  • MONETIZE games and applications by reaching a broad audience of PC Gamers

At Intel’s developer training seminar, we showed developers how to activate features of Unity* to take advantage of multiple Intel® processor cores.

Learn the secret art of spellcasting. Veteran developer Insomniac Games presents The Unspoken—an Oculus Touch‐enabled VR action game that pulls players into a hidden world of spellcasting and magicians’ duels. Manipulate the environment around you with the powerful arcane forces that flow through your fingertips, summon unfathomable monstrosities with your bare hands, and rise up through the ranks of an urban magic fight club. www.insomniacgames.com/games/the-unspoken
