The Assembly: Designing for Virtual Reality

Would you like a closer look at the secret world of The Assembly? Well, then you’re in luck as in our brand new video, we give you a behind-the-scenes look at the game’s development.

In this video, the first of a series, we discuss the challenges we overcame when designing The Assembly as game built from the ground up for high-end VR devices. We explain how we’ve designed the game to make the best use of VR, with the goal of making it a great first experience for anyone who’s new to virtual reality.

Take a look at the video below to discover how we used innovative movement mechanics, level design that mimics the real world and a specially crafted UI to create a realistic, atmospheric and fully immersive experience.

We hope you enjoy this sneak peek into our upcoming interactive story in first-person VR, and the intriguing, morally dubious world in which it’s based.
