Site Updates – Barista Express

Re­cent up­date to Con­struct Ar­cade: Barista Ex­press im­prove­ments, exit but­tons and more.

If you have come in­to poses­sion of an Oculus Quest and happened to click on the browser app, you will have no­ticed that “Barista Ex­press” is with­in the fea­tured games sec­tion.

We are su­per thrilled that Barista Ex­press is able to in­tro­duce people to Con­struct Ar­cade this way which al­lows us to raise aware­ness for our oth­er games as well.

Future Earlier

The VR Mode is a center­piece of our vis­ion for Con­struct Ar­cade, as it en­ables a con­sist­ent ex­per­i­ence without switch­ing in and out of VR. Des­pite of this, we knew, we had to pick people up in a world they knew, and go down the Rab­bit Hole with them.

I dis­tinctly re­mem­ber that VR-only web­sites were con­fus­ing and off-put­ting to my­self just a year ago which lead us to start off with a clas­sic web­site and add the VR mode later.

But just 9 months after launch of Con­struct Ar­cade, people come to our site already in VR where now switch­ing out causes wait­ing and fric­tion. So an­noy­ing, when you ac­tu­ally want to be play­ing a game!

Oculus Quest is such a fric­tion­less ex­per­i­ence. It feels per­fect for small VR browser ex­per­i­ences, where Desktop head­sets of­ten re­quire setup that to make it worth it, should be for longer sit­tings/stand­ings. In the spir­it of fric­tion­less, VR browser games do not need to be down­loaded or in­stalled which fit beau­ti­fully in the en­tire scheme.

And even for de­velopers, browser games mean less fric­tion: small load­ing times, lean frame­works, fast de­ploy­ment, less cur­a­tion, easi­er multi-device sup­port and easi­er to show off.

Return to Construct Arcade

To im­prove fric­tion between play­ing dif­fer­ent games, we star­ted to make a couple of changes:

More of our games are get­ting “Exit but­tons” to re­turn to the Con­struct Ar­cade VR mode. The VR mode is now gen­er­ally more prom­in­ent and we are work­ing on fea­tur­ing all games there. This trend will likely con­tin­ue, as we make the back­stage changes to al­low more seam­less trans­itions from one game to the next.

Barista Express

Your fa­vor­ite barista sim­u­la­tion VR browser game is re­ceiv­ing some love: It already had an exit but­ton! But that was con­fus­ing, as “exit” could mean “exit VR” and we are cer­tain that most people just clicked on it by ac­ci­dent and prob­ably were very con­fused when they landed in our VR mode.

We made sure people now know where they are go­ing.

Fi­nally, we made some im­prove­ments to the in­ter­ac­tion, as es­pe­cially pick­ing out the cof­fee fil­ters from the grinder was in­furi­at­ingly dif­fi­cult. The per­form­ance im­prove­ments we made are not quite suf­fi­cient yet, ex­pect the ex­per­i­ence to run even bet­ter soon.

Thanks

To all of our vis­it­ors over the past weeks, thank you for stop­ping by and try­ing out Barista Ex­press and maybe even went to play more games. We’d love to see you come back later to check out the im­proved ver­sion of the game, as­well as oth­er games!

So please go and fol­low us on Twit­ter, Face­book and In­s­ta­gram.

Have a fant­ast­ic day, Jonath­an from Con­struct Ar­cade
