Happy to announce the Official Theme of the Hack is.....

RETRO

Pertaining to something from the past (in a nostalgic way)...

Do you have a favorite FPS or a classic game you love to play?

Wouldn't it be awesome to turn your favorite 8 bit games in to a VR Experience.

Here are some great examples of retro games turned into VR Experiences.
