OGA Corporate Member Trion Worlds looking good with their latest game!

It's like a MOBA, but in a way that's nothing like a MOBA, Atlas Reactor. We’re drowning in a sea of MOBAs. Dota 2, League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Smite, the list goes on and on and on. So it’s really nice to see Trion, developer of Rift and Trove, try something slightly different with thei…

Women say virtual reality industry needs to start with awareness of diversity

Great write up from our OGA Networking Lounge Event during GDC and with OGA's Diversity Special Interest Group - "Diverse People, Perspectives and Products for Immersive Computing" with Dean Takahashi GamesBeat; Megan Gaiser, Contagious Creativity; Leslie Pirritano, Elevate Charity; Nichol Bradford, Willow Group; Christina Heller, VR Playground http://venturebeat.com/2016/03/26/women-say-virtual-reality-industry-needs-to-start-with-awareness-of-diversity/

Virtual reality is about to take off in a big way. Tech advisor Digi-Capital estimates that it could be a $30 billion industry by 2020. But if follows in the footsteps of the video game industry when it comes to the issue of diversity, that could be a disaster.
