About LIV

LIV is a windows app available on Steam for creating Mixed Reality in VR using the openVR API. It is currently officially supported on the HTC VIVE and Oculus Rift using SteamVR. Windows Mixed Reality support is forthcoming.

LIV is still in Early Access, and we're working diligently in improving stability and performance across all devices and hardware configurations. We're still a small team of nerds who are working on this because we absolutely love what we do, and want to empower more people in VR to create compelling VR content. In other words, LIV is the result of Ikigai from everyone involved, including you fine folks in our community.

Thank you for all your continued support!
