There are more than 2 billion video game players worldwide.   Virtual reality has a bright future within gaming, as 58% of the most frequent gamers intend to play games on VR!

Cory Strassburger, Emmy Award winning VFX artist, Director and Co-Founder of Kite and Lightning, will take us on a tour through the creation of his new VR game, Bebylon Battle Royale, described as a comedic party brawler, complete with babies fighting each other in souped up cars.
