Abstract

Babies & Basilisks is a virtual reality (VR) party game featuring asymmetric, local multi-user gameplay which allows two types of players to experience one game differently. One player, wearing a VR headset, builds a dungeon-like environment from hallway sections and rooms, which can be assembled in many configurations. Four additional players, in third-person perspective, use a standard gamepad to move their characters through the constructed environment, overcoming navigational and combat challenges by using abilities unique to each of the four characters. The goal of the gamepad players is to reach a specified endpoint, while the goal of the VR player is to thwart them by strategic deployment of enemies and traps, together with a boss, which the VR player directly controls.
