Two weeks ago I released a prototype of a VR game: Shopkeeper Simulator VR. Your mission is to spend a day in a grocery store serving customers! Rack up as much points as possible but be aware that you also need to restock groceries with your points!
My motivation were the good memories of a childhood shop and how great it were to run your own shop in VR in a relaxing environment!
Yesterday I updated the game with a new feature: You can use a laptop screen with your VR hands to order new items! Your hand automatically switches to a pointing gesture to make selecting buttons easier. It took a while to implement the colliders correctly (nested colliders, sigh) but finally it works as I imagined. You can do a swiping gesture to scroll the screen, it is still a bit buggy though.
- Get points for choosing the correct groceries and adding them to the shopping cart!
- Updated recently: Use your computer to restock your supplies! Use swiping gestures as you would in real life!
- Choose between normal perspective and a giant mode!
- Adjust the customer frequency to your liking!
The game has only been tested on the HTC Vive but since it was developed in Unity and SteamVR, any headset which is supported by SteamVR should work.
The current status is still pretty much "prototype", so I am looking forward to feedback and comments!
