The world of gaming is expanding faster than ever before, with advancements in technology bringing about immersive and unforgettable experiences

Let us initially delve into the basics of AR and VR, exploring how these cutting-edge technologies are shaping the future of gaming. Before discussing AR/VR game development, let us understand AR and VR first.

Augmented Reality (AR) bridges the gap between the virtual and real world by seamlessly integrating digital content into the user’s surroundings via a camera and a display. AR games leverage this technology to create exciting and immersive gameplay experiences. This allows players to interact with virtual objects as if they were part of their physical surroundings.

Some examples of AR games that left their mark on the gaming industry are Pokemon Go, Harry Porter-wizards Unite, The Walking Dead- Our World, Jurassic World Alive, etc.

AR lets users interact with virtual elements while being aware of their surroundings, but VR provides a completely immersive experience. It offers a 3D virtual space that users can access using equipment like VR headsets, haptic feedback gloves, and controllers. VR games create the feeling of being transported to a new interactive environment separated from the real world.

Beat Saber, Hitman 3, Half-Life- Alyx, Resident Evil 7, VRChat, etc. are some well-known VR games.

Many new AR and VR game development projects are underway to provide gamers with unique experiences, some of which are as follows:

Immersive 3D Experience

While 3D graphics have been in existence for some time, they are now experiencing a renaissance in the gaming industry as players demand a more realistic and immersive gaming experience. AR and VR games cater to gaming in 3D space, which allows users to see and feel a world that was once limited to mundane desktop screens.

Real-Time Social and Virtual Interaction

AR technology has the exceptional ability to merge the tangible and intangible worlds, resulting in a surreal hybrid experience for users. It allows real-time interaction between computer-generated user avatars and virtual objects in the surroundings. VR, on the other hand, creates an entirely new world where players can meet and go on adventures.

Experience a Distinct Lifestyle

With recent AR/VR developments, simulations are becoming more realistic and immersive. Gamers can now explore diverse terrains, engage in activities, and attend events that were previously beyond reach.

But the influence of AR and VR is not limited to entertainment. Their applications have extended to industries such as medicine, tourism, education, and business, where they are being used for enhanced operation and promotional purposes.

Today, there are many types of VR and AR games. These games can be broadly classified into three distinct categories, which are:

Real-Time Strategy Games

Real-time strategy games require users to collect resources to build units or empires. Every move calls for meticulous planning as it directly affects the outcome. Some examples of real-time strategy games are Knightfall AR, Skyworld- Kingdom Brawl, Demeo, etc.

Multiplayer Games

Multiplayer games are one of the most popular genres among gamers as it allows them to feel as if they were in close proximity to their gaming partners. Users can create and customize their digital avatars and subsequently team up with other players to experience real-time adventure.

Examples of multiplayer AR/VR games are Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, Minecraft VR, Pokemon Go, Real Racing 3, Rabbids-Crazy Rush, etc.

Virtual Simulation Games

Virtual simulation games allow users to simulate lifestyles and interact with in-game AI characters. These AI characters and outcomes respond to the environment and your actions, making them seem more natural and life-like. Some examples of virtual 3D simulation games are Cooking Simulator VR, Vermilion, Eleven Table Tennis, Blade and Sorcery, etc.

Developing an AR/VR game from scratch requires exceptional software and design skills, as well as a highly imaginative and creative mind. Here is a brief overview of our distinct AR/VR game development process:

Mapping Out an idea

To develop an AR/VR game, we start by conceiving a unique game idea, which includes outlining the storyline, designing the environment, and developing characters. Thereafter, we move on to the 3D modeling phase.

3D Modelling and Character Creation

Creating 3D models for gaming necessitates familiarity with multiple platforms like Blender, Unity, Sketchfab, ZBrush, etc. Our designers transfer models between these apps to access specialized features for modeling, texturing, shading, rigging, and animation. Unity and Unreal Engine are some of the top animation platforms for gaming.

If you want to avoid the cumbersome task of 3D modeling, reach out to us. Our team of experts will bring your imagination to life.

Interconnecting Virtual Elements with Coding

With all 3D elements ready, 3D developers proceed to connect them seamlessly to create a captivating game environment. Our designers possess fluency in programming languages like Python, C++, C#, and JavaScript which crucial for synchronizing the elements. We are a leading AR/VR development company in India and China with years of experience in developing software for leading global brands. With our help, you can complete your AR/VR game development project within a deadline.

Development of Wearable Gears

Wearable gear like AR/VR goggles, haptic feedback gloves, etc., enhance user interactivity. These AR/VR input devices require various motion sensors and eye trackers to generate accurate results. Hence, game developers need a thorough knowledge of IoT (Internet of Things) devices and platforms.

With our HoloLens development kit, we can craft bespoke software for your AR/VR headset, enabling you to experience the seamless fusion of reality and virtuality.

Although AR and VR are much different in application and user experience, they are both inextricably tied to the gaming industry, catering to next-gen gaming.
If you want to design and publish an AR/VR game and earn money from it, it has to be appealing and believable. It’s a good idea to let experts handle the technical aspects while you focus on planning and executing other important tasks. Contact us for consultancy or project-related queries.

Yes, it’s possible to play AR games on a PC. However, AR essentially requires a camera to capture the surroundings. An additional webcam or even better, an AR head mount is recommended for an immersive gameplay experience.

Some of the best VR headgear are Meta Quest 2, Sony PlayStation VR 2, Valve Index VR Kit, etc. On the other hand, some of the best AR head-mounts are Microsoft HoloLens 2, Lenovo ThinkReality A3, Google Glass Enterprise 2, etc.

Unity3D is till now one of the best and the most availed development engine. It is estimated that around 60% of the AR/VR content and 50% of the mobile games are developed using Unity3D. At axiusSoftware, we use Unity alongside various tools and apps to help you build well-optimized and visually appealing characters and environments.
