3lb Games set out to create a multiplayer mixed reality game where players could pick up the game quickly with limited gameplay instruction. Don't think. Just do.

At the onset of the development for Grokit the team set forth a design philosophy for keeping the audience immersed while reducing the cognitive load of learning mechanics through natural hand gestures via hand tracking. Mixed reality and spatial interaction are key to gaining mass adoption because users are more at ease when they can see and interact with the real world. Headset manufacturers are now providing the cutting edge technology to make this a reality.

This postmortem gives a broad view of the development of Grokit and dives deeper into the technical challenges of multiplayer, spatial interactions, and scene understanding.


Session attendees will have the opportunity to glean insights and best practices on the cutting edge of the latest features of XR headsets including Mixed Reality, spatial interaction, spatial audio and scene understanding in a multiplayer setting.

Intended Audience

This is for all game developers with an interest in XR gaming development. Specific technical details will be presented at a high-enough level to be understandable by anyone within the industry who has a basic understanding of Virtual Reality.
