The Concept

The idea is simple: cornhole, in Virtual Reality, with multiplayer support.

Clever, right?

Enter VR Cornhole, the virtual reality lawn game we built in-house using both the  HTC Vive — because of its room-scale capabilities and its motion controllers — and Unreal Engine (for the game software development).

The Game

The Game itself is split into two modes: Party mode and Online 1 vs 1.

Party mode is a simple local multiplayer mode, where a group of friends can share one headset and pass it around as each player’s turn comes up. The players can adjust how many players are in the group (up to 4 players), how many bean bags per player, and the difficulty level (the distance to the platform).

Online 1 vs 1 was the most challenging from a technical point of view. You can read more about the development of this feature in our engineering blog here . This mode allows a player to connect to another player via a local network or over the internet. Online 1 vs 1 requires two VR headsets.

And of course, be sure to head over to vrcornhole.isl.co and take a look at the finished game, download the project files for free and take a stab at expanding it.  See what you can do with it, maybe add some crazy fireworks? Set it up in space? Put a T-Rex in it? Go nuts!
