Episode 5 of UploadVR’s weekly podcast, The VR Download, is LIVE on YouTube today at 10:30 AM PST (17:30 UTC).
Unlike regular video podcasts, The VR Download is broadcast from a virtual reality studio! Our team are together in a virtual space, giving us many of the benefits of a studio even though we live on different continents.
Our Special Guest this week is a developer from Cloudhead Games, the studio behind The Gallery story-based adventure VR game series, and the upcoming VR action game Pistol Whip! He’ll be joining us for the duration of the show, and at the end we’ll be interviewing him.
This week’s Hot Topic is VR killer apps. Is this a meaningful idea? Does VR need a killer app? Is Beat Saber already a killer app? Or will the metaverse be the killer app? Tune in to find out.
The show is hosted by our Operations Manager, Kyle Riesenbeck. Kyle was formerly the host of the Rev VR Podcast, a popular VR podcast back in the Oculus development kits era.
