Team Trolley VR

Your dog thinks a trip to IKEA is the ideal outing to make your new home the best place ever (but we didn't get that far, so enjoy the furniture shower with your trolley). A VR experience meant to be played with a physical trolley controller that we built using an HTC Vive tracking puck. Collect all the falling furniture and enjoy your shopping trip. Feel free to bulldoze your way through the ensuing mess! Trolley rides optional, players play at their own risk, no trolley was harmed in the making of this game.
Jam year: 
2019
Diversifiers: 
Mind over matter
Platforms: 
MS Windows, Virtual Reality platform
Tools and Technologies: 
Unreal Engine, Virtual reality head mount display (Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, etc.)
Technology Notes: 
It's Unreal Engine 4.21.2 with HTC Vive, you need a trolley that exactly matches the in-game model, with a Vive tracker placed exactly on the trolley as seen in the model, you will also need to rotate the puck so that the trolley is exactly represented in the VR world as it is in the real world. Stick the puck to the trolley so it does not fall off. Then you can optionally add a friend to the trolley and push them through the furniture shower (they should wear the headset). You may also play with an additional controller, allowing you to pick up small furniture to try and tidy the space.
Installation Instructions: 

Install Unreal Engine 4.21.2, unzip the project, open the project, build your trolley controller and test via VR preview.  Enjoy!
