The first of my VR experiments is almost finished. The Window is a one room claustrophobic experience for Google Cardboard. I like the way that VR has kind of pushed back the idea of “the short game!” Wearing a cardboard device for more than about 5 minutes is painful and impractical so we have to make short interactive “ideas” fit that format. It brings to mind the typical quirkjy YouTube clip, or before that the single floppy “demos” on the Amiga, that I loved so much.. had a big collection… oh wait a minute.. and before that.. THE SINGLE!
What is it with that time slot? 4 or 5 minutes seems to be a nice little slice of time?
Anyway, The window explores the way to move around with no interface or controller, not totally solved, it has a few ways to interact with things, a phone, a door, a button and an electric guitar. Things change, but will you notice? until its too late? A little environmental in message, and quite dark.. in a Stanley Parable kind of way…
Coming soon on Apples App store… not free, but “virtually free” ha ha
