VR World Congress Announcing UK Debut of Crytek’s The Climb & Talk from Henry Audio
VR World Congress 2016 is taking place in Marriott Hotel City Centre at Bristol, UK on April 12 from 9am to 5pm. VR World Congress will bring buyers, sellers and developers from VR and its surrounding industries from across the globe together.
The conference had announced the first round of partial speaker list, and this week, adding to its lineup, the world-renowned game and engine developer Crytek, along with ‘Henry’ audio lead Thomas Bible, are among the raft of exhibitors, speakers and sponsors newly announced for VR World Congress on 12th April in Bristol, UK.
Crytek, BDH and NSC Creative Joining VRWC Exhibition
Newly announced Gold sponsor Crytek will be bringing its hotly anticipated VR title The Climb to VR World Congress, giving expo and full ticket holders the first opportunity in the UK to try the innovative climbing game. This also marks a very rare chance to try out the Oculus Touch controllers long before their release later in 2016.
Crytek will be joined at the VRWC expo area by creative content studios BDH and NSC Creative. BDH rose to prominence through their BAFTA-nominated work on War of the Words VR and have since created a variety of fascinating VR projects.
NSC Creative produce immersive storytelling experiences including the world’s first cross-platform VR and dome immersive film, We Are Stars. The company will be bringing their 3m diameter stereoscopic 3D dome to demo content and highlight the crossover between fulldome and VR immersive worlds.
Two new speakers announced
VR World Congress is also happy to announce a selection of brand new speakers. Thomas Bible is the first new addition; Thomas was the lead audio designer on Oculus Story Studio’s ‘Henry’ and will be talking about his work on that and upcoming Oculus Story Studio project ‘Dear Angelica’. His previous work includes an impressive list of video game audio design, including numerous Star Wars projects, Forza, Sniper Elite and many more. He’ll be speaking as part of the VR World Congress tech track.
Thomas is joined by Eric W. Shamlin of US-based content studio The Secret Location. Eric has been behind a huge collection of high-profile VR projects, including the Sleepy Hollow experience for Oculus Rift, the world’s first VR piece to win an Emmy, and the well-renowned Insidious 3 VR experience. These new announcements all come alongside a brand new bronze sponsor in the form of tech software and hardware provider Blue GFX.
