    Just like to say the Orbulus is available on Google Play so if you have a smart phone VR viewer please check it out.

    Hehe - sorry I couldn't say at the time, but Smash Hit Plunder is made for GearVR! So no more odd mouse movements or wire tangling for the next meetup :p

    • Ben D.

      That's awesome news Katie! Really enjoyed the game & talking with you. Can't wait to play it on GearVR. Funny thing about the cables... I didn't notice them - it was like someone was kindly following me around and holding them out of the way for me :P

      September 4

    Yet another drop-out! Me -= babysitter. May be a few months until my next... by which time it'll all be Matrix-esque neural VR and @Nick Pittom will be on to his next jolly Kickstarter ;-)

    September 2

    • Poppy B.

      Haha, see you next time, Rupert.

      September 2

  • Adam D.

    Still on the wait list. Is it still worth showing up tonight anyway?

    September 2

    • Adam D.

      Aaah so close, oh well hopefully I get in next time. Glad to see VR is gaining more and more popularity these days.

      September 2

  • Elisa Di L.

    Hi guys, I'm one of the developers of Loading Human.
    I should be in London together with one of our designers and our tech lead that day, we'd love to attend.
    I'm currently on the waiting list. Should my team mates apply as well or if I'm accepted they can come along?

    August 28

    • Ben D.

      Hi Elisa, can your demo run on DK2? I'm happy to let you have mine for the evening if you like.

      August 29

    • Poppy B.

      Ben - if you could bring yours as a spare, that would rock!

      September 2

  • Quick F.

    removed my rsvp to clear a space! I'll still be here but we can now get another one in!

    My space has been released... had to drop out again, which is a shame as I am moving out of London in October so probably wont be able to visit again. Have seen some very cool projects at these meetups, so thank you for organising them :)

    September 1

    • Poppy B.

      Was really great having you at the meet-ups, Tim. Good luck with your move!

      September 1

  • Adam L.

    Hey, I'm afraid I'm no longer able to make it tomorrow - changed my RSVP in case people are on the waiting list. Hope you guys have fun!

    September 1

    • Poppy B.

      Thank you for letting us know. :)

      September 1

  • Teddy

    Hey gang,

    I've got a DK2 and a new version of my UE4 rollercoaster to demo if there's space. Just say the word and I'll bring it along!

    August 31

    • Poppy B.

      Hey Teddy. We don't have any spare computers - if you can bring one, we may be able to find somewhere....otherwise, we'll make sure you get first dibs next time!

      September 1

  • Katie G.

    I'm still able to demo and talk!

    August 28

    • Poppy B.

      Can you send over a copy of the build too, so we can make sure we have a computer that works. Are you bringing a Rift?

      August 28

    • Katie G.

      Both is fine, if you could email me that'll be great (katie at triangularpixels)

      August 29

  • John B.

    Damn, I'm not going to be able to make it along this time. I'll free up my spot for somebody else...

    August 28

    • Poppy B.

      Aw, you'll be missed - but thanks for freeing your space. :)

      August 29

  • Peter M.

    Have ported "Orbulus" to the Android platform and have acquired a Google cardboard to add to my collection of HMDs. Will bring that up as it is a bit of fun, easy to demo, needs little space and a few of the development folks may want to hear how it can be done. Cheers

    August 23

    • Poppy B.

      Hey there Peter. That sounds great. Do you need any kit from us?

      August 28

  • Jon H.

    I'm author of www.crystalrift.com and live in central London

    1 · July 26

    • Jon H.

      Yes, I would just need access to a really fast PC

      August 18

    • Poppy B.

      Hey there Jon. Our next event will be in November sometime (we currently have three speakers for this one), but you're welcome to bring your game to demo at this event if you'd like. We'll sort out a computer for you (I assume you have a Rift to bring). If you'd like to stand up and speak at the November event, do let me know. Cheers!

      August 28

  • Jon H.

    Hey all, I'm the developer of Crystal Rift (http://www.crystalrift.com/) I have a DK2 and would like to attend to show my game, is this possible ?

    August 18

  • Chris O.

    I am on the waiting list. How big is the waiting list? :)

    August 6

    • Poppy B.

      Hi Chris. There are 26 people waiting at the moment. There tends to be a lot of movement as people change their RSVPs a day or so before the event.

      August 7

  • Jon H.

    Would love to come along - hopefully will be very useful for myself and the group!

    1 · July 31

  • Nick P.

    Would love to show off my games :) Need another speaker? Could say stuff about things!

    1 · July 22

    • Poppy B.

      Just let me know what computer specs you need for the games. You have a Rift, right?

      July 25

    • Nick P.

      I have a rift. No DK2 yet! Although still struggling with the new SDK to get DK2 demo versions working. Specs? At least a 560ti. Better if possible! 780ti best :D

      July 25

  • Daniel W.

    Damn, I would have liked to show off my games Gooze (first person survival horror, http://fierythings.com/games/Gooze/goozeLogoWithMockup.jpg) and LizzE (third person hack and slay, http://www.lizze.eu). But I won't be in the country then, sadly.

    July 19

    • Poppy B.

      Aw, that's a shame. Perhaps you'll be around for the next one. We don't have a date yet, but as always - we will keep you call informed. :)

      1 · July 22

  • Katie G.

    May be able to show our game : )

    3 · July 16

    • Katie G.

      And maybe give a talk... RE: About developer considerations in VR

      1 · July 16

    • Poppy B.

      Katie - we'd love it if you could. Let me know. :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
