Lists of programs for developing nontraditional projects and examples

Virtual Reality

On this page, you will find programs for creating video games. However, if you need options for testing out or playing games, Area 49 has options for you.

  • In addition to console gaming, Area 49's Visualization Lab features Unity and a VR headset where you can test out your game to see how it works.
  • If you need to develop a game, Area 49's Multimedia Lab has both Unity and Blender. This space is open whenever the library is open.
  • Area 49 has multiple Virtual Reality (VR) headsets available for use. However, not all programs can be used on each headset. 

Not all VR programs listed in this guide are currently available on our headsets. If you are interested in using something you see here, email us at about the feasibility of acquiring it.

Programs may be available for other headset brands, but we have only indicated availability for those in Area 49's collection. For compatibility information for additional headsets, check the website for the program you wish to use.
