168: Island Time VR, Sky and Games Becoming Movies

Episode Summary

We talk about Island Time VR, Sky from thatgamecompany, Apple entering the VR space and video games becoming movies. We also send a big shoutout to all our event attendees!

Episode Notes

We had our big April event in Dallas where we teamed up with Flight School Studio to promote their new game Island Time VR and play some awesome favorites of our own such as Battlesloths 2025, Mario Kart 8, Brawlout and more! We also demo the upcoming game from thatgamecompany called “Sky” for iOS. Finally, Extinction released from the developers behind Killer Instinct and work on many other games and unfortunately it doesn’t quite make the mark.

Our news features Apple’s leak of a VR/AR headset in the works, some hackers making cheats in PUBG, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Nintendo’s focus at E3 this year.

Our discussion is about games becoming films and whether or not we should continue to pursue them. If we do continue to make them, how can filmmakers create movies that do the game justice? With Rampage becoming a movie and things like Prince of Persia and Assassin’s Creed not doing the best, we’re not sure what to expect.
