How can social VR experiences bring us together in new and playful ways?
The social and creative potential of VR is something many have been exploring for years, yet 2020 shone a light on VR’s ability to bring us together in playful and digitally embodied ways like never before. In 2016 Simon Barratt co-founded Cooperative Innovations with a belief in these immersive technologies as the future of entertainment, work and life. Since then, they have gone on to release a range of successful games and projects including a VR port of the critically acclaimed chaotic co-operative game Spaceteam in 2020.
Join Simon as he discusses the challenges and possibilities of bringing playful co-operative experiences such as Spaceteam into the realm of VR as well as reflecting on the impact 2020 has had on the reception and demand for social VR.
