Awards: Winner – CHI Student Game Competition – Innovation in Input
Gravity Pull is an immersive VR puzzle experience for Google Cardboard that was developed to showcase an input technique that I developed called VR-Step. You don’t need external controllers to move in Gravity Pull, just walk in place!
The game itself was heavily inspired by Portal and The Talos Principle. Google Cardboard has extremely limited input options (generally limited to a single button input), so creating a fully-featured puzzle game that was accessible to the kind of audience that was using Google Cardboard was a major challenge!
You will need an Android phone or an iPhone, and a Google Cardboard headset to play the game.
