Volleyball Game

One of the projects that Virtual Pay is working on at the moment is an educational game for the NeVoBo (Dutch Volleyball Association). It will teach you to quickly recognize position errors on the field. The game is expected to be available in mobile app stores from the end of October.

Visiting our exhibits: a trip to Corpus Museum!

Visiting our exhibits: a trip to Corpus Museum!

The Virtual Play team went on a trip to Corpus Museum! We went on the ‘journey through the human body’, and visited all the exhibits we made… of course we couldn’t resist improving some of the high-scores! It was a festive day out – many thanks to Corpus, we had a great time!

 

Hatchlings at playtest

Hatchlings at playtest

We ran another playtest demo of Hatchball at the networking lunch today, this time with some new hatchlings making their debut in the game! In August the hatchlings will be away for a summer vacation, but in September they’re sure to join the party again.

Soccer Nations Battle on Steam Summer Sale

Soccer Nations Battle on Steam Summer Sale

Our party game Soccer Nations Battle is in the Steam Summer Sale now! Get the game for 50% off – almost free! From today until July 9. https://store.steampowered.com/app/849270/Soccer_Nations_Battle/

At the moment the game is only local multiplayer. We’re working hard on training virtual opponents with a system of deep learning, using punishment and reward. That way the virtual agents can find out for themselves what the best way of playing is. They’ve soon started to understand by themselves that it’s a good idea to run toward a goal – it’s a start!

Our Corpus Exhibits on TV

Our Corpus Exhibits on TV

The game that we’ve made for the “Blij met een Ei” organisation is a permanent installation in Corpus Museum, but you can also admire it on national television this weekend: this Sunday, June 23, 17.30, in “Nederland Proeft” on RTL 4. There are also some other Corpus exhibits made by Virtual Play being shown –  nice to see!

Hatchball on physical pinball table

Hatchball on physical pinball table

Today we had a first for Hatchball: we tested the game on a physical table! The table, also manufactured by Virtual Play, has the layout and controls of a traditional pinball table, but is displayed on a built-in screen. We’ve done these playtests as usual at the Dutch Game garden networking lunch. We got a lot of positive feedback, and we’ll be developing Hatchball more in the coming period.
