Epic Games’ New Engine Editor Lets You Create Virtual Reality While In Virtual Reality

Epic Games galvanized the VR tech industry scene with their new engine. This bad boy allows anyone with their hands on an Oculus Touch and HTC Vive to create a virtual reality game, while in virtual reality. Kind of a dizzying mindfuck, am I right? Like a dream within a dream, ‘Inception,’ kind of confusion. Well the easily comprehensible purpose of such an engine couldn’t be more cut ‘n dry: by creating a virtual reality game, while you’re in virtual reality, you’ve the chance to optimize all particulars of the game so that it runs as smoothly as possible when the game’s finalized/created. The circles of virtual reality-savvy folk seem to be pretty stoked.

Epic Games will announce more details about their virtual reality tools next month.
