Great game! I saw this at the Austin VR Game Jam and was probably one of the most creative use of VR experiences there that I saw. Definitely hook it up to Steam Leaderboards and also it seems like it's building off of Pac-Man with the little fruit items, the return symbol, and the whole moving around to avoid the "ghost" dragons. Definitely build more on top of that, make the return symbol allow you to punch the dragons to destroy them and then they respawn and maybe as game goes on more dragons spawn or this allows you to go for level based structure. Good luck with the progress!

my friend and I really enjoyed trying this out, any plans for it in the future?

So far only things planned are hooking up steam leaderboards, and minor bugfixes. Anything else you'd like to see?

That sounds like a good start, maybe some adaptive AI? Ex. I saw the snakes go in circles over and over and it seemed to be a way to keep them away for a long time. It would be interesting to see also new snake appear, more than one, ex. 1 snake might get tired and go away but a new snake will come along and try to get the mice.
