Kids Love Virtual Reality

When you’re feeling down about the bug you can’t fix, a major studio announces a title that is too similar to yours for comfort, or the doubters and naysayers are being just a bit too persuasive for comfort – go show a group of kids virtual reality for the first time, and be ready for […]

KittenVR 0.1.6 is now “available”

I have a problem bringing things to completion. I don’t feel like KittenVR should have a major release number, because right now, it’s just one little scene that I made in Unity.
