Audience Level: All

Come join us for a session about best practices, dos and don'ts, tips and tricks about creating Mixed Reality experiences from our learnings as an internal game development team, who spearheaded exploring what is possible and what is fun in Mixed Reality at Meta.

The talk will start with discussing the double-edged nature of having no direct control on the game level vs expanding player's physical spaces, and then expand into the "simple" challenge of creating a fun, interesting, balanced, replayable game in everyone's homes.

Other key points of learning will be how to make sure the virtual and the physical realities mix well, and what does multiplayer and safety even means in MR; and of course, how to make sure all the magic fits into the computational budget of the available hardware.


At the end of the talk, the attendees will be aware of the common challenges we have encountered at Meta while creating MR games. This will help them be better equipped to prepare and deal with these issues and potentially cut preproduction and iteration costs and create a much better experience.

Intended Audience

This talk is aimed at anyone who is developing or interested in developing a mixed reality experience independent of the hardware or game engine.
