The creators of some truly brilliant VR animations such as Lost, Henry, and Dear Angelica, and the guys who gave us the amazing Quill application, will be no more–and I for one think that is a real shame.
I mean, let’s just have a wee peak at the various brilliant animations they created for VR (and remember, a 2D video doesn’t really do them full justice, particularly Dear Angelica):
I honestly thought these guys had the potential to go on and become the Pixar of VR animation. I don’t see how shutting them down is a good call in the slightest. They could have been an ongoing showcase for Oculus and across the whole VR animation industry, and eventually even made the company a whole load of money too. If Steve Jobs were running Oculus this wouldn’t have happened. 😮
I’m sad to see Oculus Story Studio go, but thanks for the selection of genuinely great animations I’ve thoroughly enjoyed in VR.
