The Future of VR roleplay: Aeksia

Hey there everyone! Thanks for coming and reading our first blog post! I’m Bucky, the lead developer here at Strawberry Fields Interactive (SFI). I work to bring Aeksia to life using Unity 3D with the rest of the development team. In my spare time, I am an avid gamer, streamer, and role player across many platforms. I originally got started in virtual reality (VR) after getting a Rift CV1 as a gift for Christmas of 2017. I sunk hours into games like Pavlov, Boneworks, and VRChat while learning how to 3D model, animate, texture and rig characters through the help

A Welcome Message from Strawberry Field’s co-founder

I’m writing to you today to introduce you to an exciting new platform that we are developing at Strawberry Fields Interactive called Aeksia. Aeksia is a platform in which we bring the dynamics of tabletop role-playing games (TTRPG) to the virtual reality (VR) gaming platform. This project was first conceptualized in 2019 while I was working at the BC Tech Cube, a Vancouver-based collaborative space for virtual and augmented reality development companies. Since then, it has been our primary focus and it led us to apply for the Canada Media Fund (CMF) Conceptualization Program. After being accepted, we used that fund to
