Solo project development, I am responsible for all aspects of the project: third-person shooter with tower defence elements, in VR (using the HTC Vive)
Wanting to get into some VR Development (as well as get back into game development), I had the idea of a third-person shooter tower defence in my mind for a while and so I set to work on it.
Using Unreal Engine 4.27, I put together this game, using as much C++ as I could (e.g. for character animation instances, behavior tree services/task nodes and for the placement of obstacles by the player).
I had to also get this to work with VR, for which in particular, one would have to have two axes (for X and Y), of each 1 dimensional axis (e.g. for MoveForward), which SteamVR would combine into two axes (bindings sample below):
An example of all of this together, is shown in the video below:
After going to EGXRezzed 2018, I was able to get feedback in person, on my Showreel (from a couple of people at the event). For reference, I am a third-year student, studying BSc Computer Games (Software Development) at Southampton Solent University.
This latest version is based on that feedback, please let me know what you think of this version :).
