Espire 1 Development Diary

Michael Wentworth-Bell here, lead designer of Espire 1: VR Operative. I’ve started two development diary threads – one on CGTalk, my favourite Computer Graphics community, and a second on the Unreal Engine Developer’s forum.

I will update these threads with every VR Diary video that I release and every major milestone. With these threads i’m hoping to connect with other artists in the CG and VR development communities and hope to form discussions around the game, Stealth and VR.

Espire 1 VR Stealth Game Website is now live

Espire 1: VR Operative website is now live

This is the official website for the VR Stealth game Espire 1: VR Operative, with development lead by Michael Wentworth-Bell. Espire 1 is a singleplayer stealth and action VR experience being developed for the HTC Vive and Oculus Touch, with support planned for PSVR. Future Espire titles will target other immersive platforms.

As of writing, I am most active on my Digital Lode Facebook and YouTube channel, where I am keeping a VR Diary video series. The VR Diaries cover the development of Espire 1 and other VR projects, tests and prototypes. The best way to get in touch with me is via one of these channels or the Espire 1 contact form. Thanks for visiting the site and for following the development of Espire 1.

Please note: I am not a web developer, so would like to extend my thanks to the WordPress project developers and I hope this website does not cause your device to explode!

Update – July 2017: There are now official social media channels for EspireVR, where all future Espire updates will be posted. You can find these links on the footer of every page on this site, and on the contact page.
