As the software tools for creating real-time interactive 3D (3D/VR for short) content mature, as does the hardware that enables its delivery, we have the opportunity to learn about some of the practical issues involved in creating commercially viable 3D/VR content. In October of 1996, The Learning Company released an educational title called Logic Quest, built on Sense8's WorldToolKit software. Logic Quest was one of the first commercial 3D/VR children's learning experiences for Windows 95. It's an interesting case study because it's a 3D version of a previous successful 2D Learning Company title called Think Quick!, and lets us look at some of the challenges and benefits of converting a 2D title to 3D.
