Planet Drop – A networked multi-player game that leverages the benefits of social VR through “cooperative asymmetrical gaming”: the virtual environment is shared by the players, but each has specific information related to his or her chosen STEM specialty, provided by individualized HUDs. However, unlike a traditional “information asymmetry” game, like a card game, the goal is not to use unshared information to a player’s advantage to win, but rather to share that information as quickly and effectively as possible to allow the team to solve challenges and advance through a story arc of increasingly impressive accomplishments.

Excellent! Thanks for the update. Looking forward.

Congratulations! You are clearly quite busy working toward that deadline. Afterward, could you write up all the issues you ran into that slowed down your development? What was missing, what was broken, which development design elements seemed complicated - that sort of thing.

Absolutely. Should be valuable to other devs going down similar roads.
