As the 2017 Game Developers Conference draws nigh, organizers are happy to confirm that some of the folks behind the popular VR game Raw Data will be speaking at the event about everything they learned going through Steam's Early Access platform.
Survios' Chris Hewish and Mike McTyre will be delivering a talk on "Learnings of Early Access From Raw Data" about how they found success early on with their VR action game. See, Raw Data was the first VR-exclusive game to reach #1 on Steam's Global Top Seller list and attain $1 million in monthly sales.
But it wasn't easy; attendees of this talk can expect to hear the Raw Data developers' "tales from the trenches," learn about unique solutions for addressing common challenges of VR development, and pick up some pointers for creating the next wave of immersive VR content.
