Mechazoic is a multiplayer VR battle arena featuring 4 different species of "Mechasaur" all bent on dominating the battlefield. Created by the Senior cohort of the Utah Valley University Animation and Game Development Program, the game art and design were made in conjunction with an upcoming animated short film. Using the film as an inspiration springboard, the cohort set out to create a game with both brutal melee combat and long range "run-and-gun" gameplay. Under the guidance of a few team leads, the 10+ students in the cohort provided both art and technical functionality to the game. This is the tangible outcome of their willingness to push VR to a new level within their program.
