Develop July: In control of virtual reality

The latest issue of Develop Magazine is available now, and features an in-depth look at the emerging control methods for virtual reality.

Elsewhere in the issue, we have interviews with Unity CEO John Riccitiello and founder Nicholas Francis, Lumino City creator State of Play Games, and the composer behind Limbo and the upcoming Inside.
