The Entire VR Industry in One Little Email
The Daily Roundup is our comprehensive coverage of the VR industry wrapped up into one daily email, delivered directly to your inbox.
When it comes to game development, Valve is probably one of the most notorious of black boxes; there’s still no telling what the studio has in store for its promised three ‘full-length’ VR titles, let alone the one planned to launch later this year. Developer Kerry Davis however will be holding a guest lecture soon at his alma mater, DigiPen, to talk about his 15 years’ experience shipping games at Valve as well as his most recent work on the studio’s upcoming VR title.
According to the listing on Geekwire, which was first brought to light by Reddit user ‘Parzival_rpo’, the talk will cover Davis’ entry into the field, his own personal experience at Valve over the years, and his more recent work “developing the company’s upcoming flagship virtual reality title.”
Davis has spent his entire 15-year career in the game industry as a programmer at Valve, and is credited on games such as Portal, Half-Life, Team Fortress, Left 4 Dead, and Counter-Strike.
Although we don’t expect any Earth-shattering revelations to come from the talk—it’s pretty rare to hear anything about any unreleased projects from Valve—we’ll have our eyes and ears open just the same for whatever we can glean.
The free talk will take place on Saturday, September 14th at DigiPen Institute of Technology in Redmond, Washington. If you’re in the area, you can RSVP here.
