Beskrivning av bidrag
Hoverbroom is a VR first-person broom flying simulator. The game transports a player into a futuristic arena with an airborn racing course. The player has to master the hoverbroom and finish a challenging course by flying through ring-shaped gates in the air. To make the gameplay experience more enticing, the gates are sealed with fire, ice, or lightening, and can be approached in any order. A Bluetooth slideshow clicker is affixed to the broom controller, so the player can aim and cast a spell from the hoverbroom by the press of a button. Hit with the right elemental spell, the gates open and allow for free passage.
For the project we built a unique broom controller interface using a cleaning broom, sensors, and a chair to mount them to. Observations and interviews with test users helped us to improve the physical controller and graphical user interface from early prototypes.
