Have a game jam arcade store on the Quest.
Super Hot, Beat Saber, Class room aquatic, Surgeon Simulator...
Those concepts had been created at a game jam in 48H.
After that game concept was turn into a game after months of work.
But the games were already amazingly fun after 48 H !
Developers need a section to share with the community their jam creation.
They are some gold over there.
For the moment, the only possibility are:
- Side Quest (that could become a store at one point)
- Ask user to Sideload
- Publish on Itch.io & Ask user to Sideload
- Put weeks effort to access alpha link on store.
All the actual available solutions require Quest user to set they Quest as developer. Creating a community of future "hacker" and insecure devices.
The best implantation to not finish with a Itch.io platform is Warcraft 3 and Starcraft 2 arcade mode.
The community was voting and pushing the game to the top of the list by playing the game. It allowed to create Dota, Tower Defense, line wars, footmen, ...
Countless of mode that was evolving with the community playing at those game on everyday base while being in development by the team.
Compilation of game that would never be on a store. But through the arcade make thousands of people having fun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFTweu-8NyI
