Yes, VR is a thing and it’s here to stay: Part 2

Virtual Reality is an amazing new toy. But is there a market for this? Absolutely. In the last year, we’ve seen the Samsung Gear VR, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift all launch their commercial headsets and later in 2016 we can get our hands on Sony’s Playstation VR…

Spending Time with Henry: Storytelling Evolved

I just recently watched Henry, from Oculus Story Studio and I felt that I had to write a short piece about the experience.

Dark 80s Synth

Whenever I work, I tend to have on some kind of noise – silence reminds me too much of an assembly hall during exam time. But I’ve found I keep drifting towards walkthroughs of old console games and soundtracks from familiar movies. For the most part I listen music and it’s usually the soundtracks that have come…

Tom Atkins: Halloween Hero

Halloween is the best time of year (sorry Santa, but my tastes have evolved and it’s been a while since you dropped by) and it’s not too long til the big night is here and the Silver Shamrock ads are playing. For horror movie fans, it’s a treat as the TV channels will soon be…
