Dylan is accompanied by Wardcast stalwarts Dan Cotting and Mason Brown for a very special episode. Shawn Patton, Senior Designer at Schell Games, stops by to talk about their currently in-development VR game I Expect You to Die.
Shawn comes from more than 13 years of experience in game development at Schell Games, so he talks to us about a myriad of topics: working at Schell, the new frontier of VR development, being a graduate from the Entertainment Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon, interning at Walt Disney Imagineering, prototyping games via “brownboxing,” helping Dylan with the chance to close a chapter on a childhood MMO he never got the chance to play, and more.
If you’re curious about learning more about the development of I Expect You to Die, we also highly recommend Shawn and Jesse Schell’s VRDC talk on the game from the 2016 Game Developers Conference.
Games include I Expect You to Die, Superhot VR, EVE: Valkyrie, and Eagle Flight.
