Create a FPS-style game for Virtual Reality using Unity's VRTK4. 'Doomstone Citadel' is set during World War II, you’ll step into the boots of a skilled allied Commando on a daring mission to infiltrate the infamous Doomstone Citadel and dismantle the terror war machine from within.
You will learn to create a polished grabbing mechanic using Orientation Handles and Hand Poses. Then go on to implement a second form of Interaction, i.e., Distant Interactions, by implementing a Distance Grab Mechanic, followed by implementing a Telekinesis Grab, where you will have dropped objects levitate to your hand.
