VR developers now have Meta Quest, SteamVR, HTC Vive, PlayStation VR 2, Pico, and other platforms to choose from when publishing their titles. These platforms vary wildly in form factor, processing power, input affordances, and audience type. SteamVR itself represents a huge range of PC hardware as well as numerous headsets and even includes a "sub-platform" in the form of Virtual Desktop. The landscape for VR porting is huge, and this talk aims to gather a lot of general pieces of hard-won wisdom from porting The Last Clockwinder, in hopes of making the journey easier for other developers considering ports.
Attendees will learn how to prepare their game for successful porting to other VR platforms by avoiding technical pitfalls, understanding user expectations on each platform, and planning effective marketing strategies.
This talk is intended for developers who are planning to bring their title to multiple VR platforms, including Quest, SteamVR, PlayStation VR 2, HTC Vive, and Pico. The content applies both to games that are currently in development and games that have already been published.
