Developer Jeroen Van Loon is excited about what his upcoming game, Aussie Indie Games, will have in store for the Australian gaming market.
A game like Aussie Independent Games, he believes, is going to take the concept of “localising” games and make it accessible to people from anywhere in the world.
“You can play it anywhere and people can play any game,” he told Polygon.
“You can make it as easy as you want to play it in your browser.”
Jeroen, a former developer at Electronic Arts, says he started developing his game with a game engine called “Aerial Combat” and a game-design team that included a “big-name” Australian developer.
The developer believes Aussie independent developers can do much more than just localise games.
“I think we have to be more than a ‘localised game’,” he said.
“If you’re playing something that’s going to be sold in the US and Australia, there’s a very good chance that you’ll be able to buy that game on Steam or wherever.”
We’re not doing that with Aussie game.
We’re not localising games, we’re just bringing them to Australia and giving them the best possible opportunity to sell in Australia.
“Jeros has been developing games for a decade, most recently on mobile devices.
But the game that he’s working on right now is a VR game called “Buddy,” a first-person puzzle-platformer that’s set to release on iOS, Android and Mac in the coming weeks.
Jeroens team worked with a VR team that includes a VR specialist, and he says the team was able to build “a pretty good VR experience in a pretty short period of time” by using the Oculus Rift headset.”
The biggest thing is that we didn’t do it on a single VR device.
But we wanted to do something a bit different.””
The VR headset was very good and the Oculus headset was really good and we managed to do really well.”
But we wanted to do something a bit different.
“Jerkhead, a VR-themed game, will launch in the next few months.
He says the game is a good example of how the new medium can take the art and gameplay of virtual reality to a new level.”
“When you look around and you look at things, you’re not just thinking about them as objects that you see in the room. “
You’re thinking about what you’re seeing and the experience you’re having, and that’s what makes VR really unique.””
