Interest in the metaverse and rapid adoption of Oculus Quest 2 headsets has spawned a lot of interest in VR applications and games. If you are looking for a quick and easy way to build VR games and experiences, then this course is for you. In this course we will use just html and javascript to create immersive VR games and experiences. There exists a VR javascript library called A-Frame which is specially created for making VR applications.  lt is fast and easy to use. You can create an immersive VR scene in just 10 lines of code. Building VR apps using A-Frame is just like adding lego blocks components together to create an experience.  And it is totally free. If you already know html, then this will be right at home with you. You an create a VR experience for A-Frame simply by using html tags.

In this course, I will only be using free tools:

  1. chrome browser

  2. glitch website

  3. free assets

The glitch website allows you to build and publish on the web in one go. No vetting or approval needed. Just upload and share your links with anyone you like. Using the Oculus Quest's browser, just visit your website and select VR mode and you will enter the immersive experience instantly. No need to build any apk files to sideload to your Oculus headset, nor do you need to use any link cable to connect to your PC. This is possible because most web browsers, eg, Chrome and Firefox are already VR capable (WebVR). The immersive VR experience is no different from a native VR app created by Unity and Unreal.

8 Special Features of this course:

  1. Created with beginners in mind

  2. Build experiences in small bite-sized chunks, then gradually add more components

  3. Minimalist, i.e. simplicity in coding and design

  4. Free tools and assets - nothing to install

  5. Apps are instantly deployed on the web - not controlled by vendor specific app stores.

  6. No need to install  or sideload  the games you created onto your Oculus headset

  7. Just visit your published website (game) using the Oculus Browser and enter VR mode.

  8. Each section teaches a specific game mechanic. Combine them in different ways to create your unique game.

Suitable for:

  1. Web developers who want to leverage their existing skill to create VR games and experiences

  2. Students who want to get started in HTML and Javascript by building VR apps

  3. Anyone interested to learn how to create VR games using html and javascript

  4. Those who have tried Unity or Unreal, and want something simpler and faster to develop

  5. Schools and academia looking to introduce VR concepts into the curriculum
