How TO THE TOP started
In September of 2015 Matey came back to Austin after a stay in China and crashed at Dan's home. Dan being the VR evangelist had access to some of the early consumer VR devices, They decided to start experimenting and seeing what new original ideas they could come up with. Over the course of a weekend game jam they came up with the base mechanics of climbing and leaping. Since then they have been tuning the game to maximize the fun and comfort of the game. Testing it with hundreds of players over time, they discovered their mechanics had close to zero motion sickness reactions from players. Over the course of the following year, they focused on building great game content that would make TO THE TOP a worthwhile package for all players.
