Microsoft are one of our main sponsors for Jamchester and will be attending the event all weekend to help with windows queries and promote their VR initiatives. We'll be welcoming Lee Stott and Trisha Rana from Microsoft and also Louis Deane from VISR-VR, and their colleagues.

Microsoft are promoting VR at Jamchester and sponsoring the "Best Windows VR Game" award so please check out their VR developers page at http://aka.ms/msdnvruk

This is an award for games that use Windows VR software/APIs and hardware (so Windows Phone, Oculus, Vive, etc). A great VR game that uses Microsoft tech to achieve it's objectives.

They will be providing great prizes for the category too!
