Originally showcased to the public in 2015 at the GearVR jam you can really see elements of Hideo Miyazaki throughout. The virtual world where you are transported to has a magical ethereal feel to it and the VR element helps add that extra dimension to the story.
The film itself relies on real-time storytelling in which you (the viewer) are able to direct the story. The basic synopsis focuses around elements of the Colosse (huge ancient spirits) including respect, fear and power.
Virtual Reality storytelling
The graphics and animation are superbly handled and help bring to life a very stylised and unique world. Bear in mind though this is not an interactive’ environment and instead you’re taken along a journey over the course of a few minutes.
Not only is Colosse available as a free download from the STEAM store its also a gold winner at the Oculus Mobile VR Jam … so there really is no excuse not to experience it.
