That's cool. A set of boardwalk carny games for VR is a good start. Limited, work on basic gameplay, easily accessible, low bar for graphics. Sounds like a prudent beginning. Baby steps. Climbing wall seems like the greatest challenge, as that uses the whole body. By the way, is Skee Ball a registe...
In the mid 1950's that would've been true. But by the latter 1950's and through the 1960's, most anthology programs were filmed and edited on 35 mm just as The Twilight Zone was.

Awwww... I didn't get to say anything about the film. Can I now? I enjoyed The Force Awakens. I must say that first.
