Post NVIDIA @ GDC 2010: On the Show Floor

Yesterday we gave you a brief overview of the NVIDIA booth and our developer talks. Today, we were finally able to walk the floor to see what other games and technologies were being shown at GDC 2010.

One of the booths we checked out belongs to Beverly Hills based, 360VirtualVentures. They're hoping to bring a unique form of virtual reality to the masses ' the VirtuSphere. We chatted with a spokesperson for the company, who explained that, unlike virtual reality simulators in the past which have the user wear a head mounted display (HMD), the VirtuSphere adds another layer immersion by placing the user in a 10-foot hollow sphere allowing complete freedom of movement in any direction.

Next, we walked over to the Independent Games Festival where we had a chance to speak with Ichiro Lambe, founder and president of Boston, Massachusetts based Dejobaan Games. Their game, uniquely titled 'AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! ' A Reckless Disregard for Gravity' is nominated for a IGF 2010 Excellence in Design Award, and it's easy to see why. What started off as a base jumping simulator, eventually morphed into a free-falling action game where gamers jump off skyscrapers, weave around buildings, earn style points, and flip off haters. Sound like fun? It is! Best of allā?¦ Ichiro is a huge supporter of NVIDIA and developed the game on NVIDIA hardware!
