In this episode I speak with Anton Hand, VR Dev, creators of Hot Dogs, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades (H3VR).
Start – 4:00 – Intro
4:00 – 7:45 – Anton asks the hard question of “Why hotdogs?”
7:45 – 17:30 – We talk about how Anton got started in the industry starting with modelling and older VR.
17:30 – 23:45 – Anton shares a little advice to get into the industry based on his experiences for 3D Arts with games
23:45 – 34:00 – We talk about why Descent 2 was his favorite game as a child and how all of that sort of bled into aspirations/inspired and such for H3VRs design principles and what not
34:00 – 47:00 – We talk about Escape from Tarkov, a game that Anton enjoys that he feels doesn’t get enough credit/attention. Inevitably leading to a discussion about the game philosophy that focuses more on letting you, the player do whatever you would like.
47:00 – 54:30 – I find out what kind of game Anton would make if money and time weren’t a concern
54:30 – – Anton talks outside hobbies and what he enjoys unrelated to gaming.
