The Conversation

In this conversation, Tom and I discuss the benefits of learning within VR, and why DJing is the right place for them to start. We get into the challenges of being very early to a market, and some survival tactics relevant for a consumer-oriented, non-game-focused VR company. We also discuss how Tribe is taking a methodical approach to gathering feedback from users and iterating on the product.
