OCULUS RIFT CAKE WALK, DEMO AND SWAP MEET

We are organizing a session of Oculus Rift Austin-developed games which cover a range of game genres. We will also discuss the future of Oculus Rift since its pending acquisition by Facebook as well as its new potential competitors ranging from Sony's "Project Morpheus" and Xbox efforts as well as companies such a Razr and others.

We will also share survey results on gamerista's research on Oculus Rift. Take the survey here and you get a free report:

We are organizing a Video Game Makers Unite! Meetup for June and would like your help in 4 ways

Let us know of you have a prototype demo of a Rift game or app you or someone you know has developed and would like to show or discuss at the June meeting (bring your Rift headset to demo) Tell us what other topics of related experts or people could present a discussion on. Complete a non-commercial open source research fast online survey about Oculus Rift (and you will get a copy of the report findings) https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/OculusRift Tell everyone you know who is interested in Rift (or its emerging competitors from Sony, Xbox, Razr and god-knows-who from China or Korea) to attend the meeting. Oh, and while we are at it... support one of our own founding VGMU members Neal Nellans on Kickstarter who is raising funds for his OR racing game:

Our very FIRST and INAUGURAL "Video Game Makers Unite!" Meetup last September featured Austin-based game studio Tiny Utopia's founder Neal Nellans. Tiny Utopia (http://www.tinyutopia.com (http://www.tinyutopia.com/)) has just announced their first VR game, "SuperBike TT" with a free playable demo of the game that can be played with the Oculus VR headset.

The game is currently running a Kickstarter to complete the project a needs your support: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/264944598/superbike-tt-for-oculus-rift

Tell your friends! And if you have any rich aunts or uncles, have them "kick" in... This looks like an awesome game!

Plus, the game is on "Steam Greenlight" and needs your vote so Steam will carry it: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=219993417

Support local video game developers and give Superbike TT the thumbs up! Spread the word and make this viral!

We meet on the 2nd. Thursday of each month at the Capital Factory, Austin, Texas at 7PM. Topics will be announced as the date grows nearer.
