VR and XR GameDev is one of the hottest emerging jobs on the planet right now, but how do you get into it? What headset should I buy? What apps do I need to download? And what skills do I need to start coding for VR games?
Hey guys! This kind of industry requires a TON of hardware, software, and skills, so I figured why not make a video about what all is required to at least start VR gamedev. Keep in mind, as far as the skills go, you don’t need to be an expert in all of these areas (or any of them). Just learn enough to be competent. You’ll figure out what you’re interested in along the way. Let me know where you’re at in your VR journey! Just starting? Already know some 3D game development? Come hang out in the comments!!
