Valve continues to show its support for interactive technology
Game developer Valve has been experimenting with augmented reality technology. The company has won acclaim for its ability to create innovative games that, at times, push the boundaries of convention. Valve has managed to stay on the cutting edge of technology, a position that has helped the company retain favor with gamers even when making rare, yet costly mistakes. Technology is constantly changing and becoming more advanced, a fact that Valve believes will cause major changes in the game industry if developers cannot adapt.
Valve’s Faliszek speaks out on augmented reality technology
Valve’s Chet Faliszek recently spoke with VG247, a gaming news publication, on the company’s interest in augmented reality and the supposed “AR goggles” it is working on. Faliszek is a fan of the augmented reality project and believes that every company in the game industry should be as well. According to Faliszek, developers and publishers that do not begin to adapt to and make use of new technology, such as augmented reality, may be setting themselves up to fail in the future.
Company shows interest in other emerging technologies
Though Valve is interested in augmented reality, it is not the only technology that the developer is currently working on incorporating into its own structure. Faliszek notes that Valve is experimenting with a wide range of technologies that could have a major impact on the company’s future games. Much of the company’s work is currently focused on the development of hardware that can handle an augmented reality system and be used in home by a gamer interested in an interactive and immersive experience.
Augmented reality could change the game industry
Augmented reality is becoming more popular in the game industry. Developers have taken to augmented reality because of its ability to create interactive experiences. Publishers have shown interest in the technology because of the reception it has received from consumers. Valve believes that augmented reality is poised to have a major impact on the industry as a whole.
