dc.description.abstract “MechVR” is a prototype game developed by the authors that adapts the first-person-shooter game genre for virtual reality. The key idea of the game is to place the player’s character inside a “mech”, a large, bipedal, anthropomorphic armoured vehicle while still retaining the gameplay typical for a first-person-shooter game. This thesis documents the game development process, with a focus on the design challenges of adapting the game mechanics of a first-person-shooter to a virtual reality environment. It also outlines the thought processes and design choices that resulted from these challenges. en
