Fall has arrived and pumpkin patches are in full swing as families and groups of friends search for the perfect orange veggie canvas to express their creativity upon. The 19th century Jack-o’-lantern tradition is, now, getting a modernized upgrade: SculptrVR is joining in the festivities and offering a free program to carve virtual pumpkins.
Pumpkin SculptrVR is now available on Steam and allows players to enlarge or shrink down to carve at a massive scale or chisel fine details into a virtual pumpkin. The gameplay is voxel based and can be manipulated block by block or destroyed entirely. The setting in your workspace can also be influenced, adding lighting and fog elements to set the scene.
On top of this free offering, the developers are holding a contest to attract more users. Take to the application and create your best work plus scenery and, if chosen as the victor, you win a little extra loot: The five favorites overall will be given a $100 Steam wallet card. If you’re willing to split your winning prize up, the application allows for up to 16 players at a time to work on a single project with voice chat enabled. You may not need the help, though. Pumpkin SculptrVR’s main tool, the delete sphere, makes the process fairly easy as you remove chunks of voxels with a wave of your wand. So carve out whatever face or design that comes to mind and place a voxel candle inside your creation for the final touch.
Pumpkin SculptrVR is available for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. A few submissions are already being shared on the company’s twitter, from fairly simple to a bit more detailed, but you still have time to get to work. Let your creativity overflow and flex your VR sculpting skills. The contest runs from now until Oct 31, 2016 11:59 pm PDT.
