Amazing game-play and concept is key to a great VR game, but another important factor is that your game runs smooth with a high frame-rate. All VR platforms have to render twice and are relying on a high frame-rate to not make the player sick.

RSVP changes:

Due to a high drop-off rate in recent meetups, we’ve taken notes from the amazing Unity Meetup Stockholm, and will open up RSVPs only a few days before the event. We’re doing this both to give everyone an equal chance to get a spot, as well as to prevent people from signing up way in advance only to not being able to show up at the event.
