Semester Project | Spring 2023
Project CAVERN is a semester-long project which is an essential part of the ETC curriculum. Our esteemed client for this project is Steve Audia, who built the C.A.V.E.R.N. system. This innovative projection system, featuring a 270-degree circular screen and a 20-foot-wide play area, aims to facilitate local multiplayer interactions within immersive virtual spaces.
Our deliverable for this project is a cooperative multiplayer experience that harnesses the power of both the expansive projection system and omnidirectional stereoscopy system. Our objective is to create a captivating 3-5 minute experience that showcases users on the incredible potential of the C.A.V.E.R.N. system, while emphasizing engaging player interactions, environment and game design, high-fidelity audio, and user tracking.
