Chris Jurney to work on game prototypes

Supergiant Games senior programmer heading to Oculus

Supergiant Games senior programmer Chris Jurney is the latest developer to head to VR firm Oculus.

Jurney revealed on Twitter that he would be leaving the Transistor studio and joining the VR outfit at the end of the month. He told Polygon he would be working on a small team doing prototypes.

"I think we’re on the cusp of truly great fully immersive virtual experiences, and I want to help make that a reality,” he said.

“I’ll be on a small team doing prototypes, which is my favourite type of work. I’m really looking forward to getting my hands dirty in virtual space."

Since Facebook’s acquisition of the company for $2 billion, Oculus has made a series of high profile hires, most recently including ex-Valve business director Jason Holtman and Naughty Dog co-founder Jason Rubin.
