Summary

In Wacktory™, a single player in VR acts as the foreman of a wacky factory, and traditional controller players act as robots on the factory floor. Players of two types must work together beat the clock and create the most advanced product ever seen—The Cube! In the development of Wacktory, I contributed heavily to every design discussion, helped other programmers out on a regular basis, and stepped up to the plate to perform by far the most programming tasks in the second half of development.
