The HTC Vive is going to let you do all kinds of things when it launches next month. You’re going to fight off zombies, wreak havoc in jobs, build vehicles and even create 3D art. You’ll also be able to play with yourself. That’s the message that VRUnicorns wants to drive home with its HTC Vive launch title, #SelfieTennis. In this often hilarious, always bizarre sports title, you’ll play tennis by yourself, switching sides to return the ball with every hit. VRFocus spoke to the team at GDC 2016 to find out more.
Below are VRUnicorns Horatiu Roman, Milan Grajetzki, Julie Heyde, ready to talk about the title, its unusual premise, and being a part of the HTC Vive launch. They discuss where the idea for the videogame came from – right in the middle of development of another – and the chances of seeing the experience crop up on other platforms outside of the HTC Vive in the future.
Stay tuned to VRFocus for more on #SelfieTennis.
