Former Double Fine staffers Patrick Hackett and Drew Skillman established a foothold at the leading edge of VR when they released their 3D VR painting tool Tilt Brush in 2016.

Many devs saw Tilt Brush as one of VR's early "killer apps", and an excellent experience to introduce newcomers to VR. At GDC 2017, Hackett and Skillman reflected on its 3 years of development and spoke frankly about its origins, early development, the acquisition of their company by Google, and the launch process.

Fellow devs should check this talk out because it sheds light on a crucial early VR success story and, more importantly, showcases how a small team can succeed with a great idea and the right circumstances.

So if you missed this talk at GDC, make sure to watch it now for free via the official GDC YouTube channel!
