Your Own Virtual Reality Gallery

The first 10 days of the launch of traVRsal have been amazing so far. More than 4000 downloads. Thousands of games played. Many many challenges posted and beaten (continue to do that! leader board coming soon). Many new reviews that make me tremendously proud and last but not least many new friendly faces in the Discord. Great feedback and enthusiasm overall. And I am happy that the whole infrastructure, servers, backends etc have not even had a hick-up once. Here some statistics as to how the last ~20 days roughly look like:

SideQuest Statistics
Dev Blog Statistics
Unity Analytics

The Gallery is one of the experiences, that is brought up very often as really astonishing in that it works so well even in such a small play space. And the photos from Unsplash look just spectacular. One wish that came up early in the betas and also now after the release was to have custom images to be shown in there as well… well…

New Source Setting in Gallery World

I’m proud to announce today that this is now easily possible. CUSTOM GALLERIES are there 🙂 All you have to do is to copy your images to the Quest and select “Device” as the source in the Gallery world.

Path: Quest 2\Internal shared storage\Android\data\com.wetzold.travrsal\files\UserImages
Location for Custom Images

In addition, there are lots of quality of life improvements as well, which fix some glitches and really improve the overall feeling. Here’s the list:
