A-Blast: Save the World from the Cutest Creatures in the Universe!

WebVR is an experimental JavaScript API that provides access to Virtual Reality devices, such as the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Samsung Gear VR, or Google Cardboard, in your browser. The WebVR API is currently available in Firefox Nightly builds, in experimental builds of Chromium, and in the Samsung Internet Browser for Gear VR

WebVR allows distribution and display of VR in a headset agnostic manner which lets content creators build and distribute VR experiences directly to consumers, at scale, via a web browser.  It provides a standardized way to deliver content which builds on top of HTML.

With A-Blast a project was made to create one game focusing on adding smooth playability, quality assets, and a real example of the capabilities of A-Frame and browser performance.

The gameplay is straightforward: just grab your weapons, aim to the characters floating around, and pull the trigger. You can also dodge and shoot enemy bullets in order to keep your 5 lives intact. The more characters you blast, the more points you get, and then enter the (local) Hall of Fame.

We wanted to keep the gameplay time under 5 minutes to have a good turnover in demo stations at fairs and conventions. For a full game, we would have designed more elaborate levels. (Yep, we know is too short, but please keep in mind that this is a technical demo, not a whole game with hours of content).
