Overte

Virtual reality based social platform

Overte is a virtual social platform that allows its users to socialize in a more involved way than traditional digital communications, by allowing them to enter worlds using Virtual Reality. It can be used not just for recreational activities, but also education, psychotherapy, congresses, and more. The goal is to support peoples need for immersive social platforms, by providing them with something that is privacy respecting and free.

As part of this project, we aim to take on bigger maintenance and development tasks that may otherwise happen slowly or remain undone. Such tasks include overhauling the build system, as one of our challenges is enabling volunteers to build, test, and contribute to a software with more than a million lines of code and many major dependencies on multiple different platforms.

Run by Overte e.V.
