Tom's experience with computer science, aerospace systems, aircraft armament systems, 3d modeling, animation, game design, video editing, photography, and technical writing, have all played a part in his latest creation. Silica: Transition is written to take you on an adventure with some young game developers and their friends and families. This story spans 300 years connecting two very different worlds; present day Earth and a planet called Silica. The news is filled with stories about the pervasive use of virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and soon cross reality (XR) which is what my team of game developers is working on right now. We intend to create a game universe where players can access the game from any device in device context based ways. Access will include mobile smartphones, desktop PCs, game consoles, arcade systems, and even location-based entertainment venues like theme parks!
