Is This Real Life? - The Blair Renaud Project, Technolust

Imagine a world where you are being watched, every hour, and every second. A world where the sun forever hides behind the cover of clouds and the streets are paved with the dew of the night. Technolust is set in a dystopian cyberpunk world where you must fight for your freedom from the oppressive corporations and hack your way to the truth.

 

Today on the show Blair Renaud from IRIS VR joins us to discuss Technolust and the development processes required to implement the DK2.
