“VR is still really new and for the most part only developers and early adopters of the technology have had the opportunity to check out all these super cool VR experiences! In the early planning stages of the MEGASHOW event series, I knew for certain that providing VR demos, whether it be games or experiences, was an important component that I wanted to include,” said Kelly Wallick, Overlord of MEGASHOW: Games. Music. Art. and Indie MEGABOOTH. “In addition to these curated experiences, we wanted feature local indie communities and provide a nice cross-section of talent between the participating game developers, musicians and visual artists. The MEGASHOW is bringing together some great Atlanta-based indie talent alongside hand-picked installation pieces to give attendees a unique festival experience.”
