Virtual Reality experience from the imagination of acclaimed film director Jon Favreau takes advantage of room-scale technology to immerse users in an enchanted fantasy world.
Virtual reality studio and content distributor Wevr (creators of theBlu) is set to unveil a preview of Gnomes & Goblins, the company’s immersive VR experience from the imagination of acclaimed film director Jon Favreau (The Jungle Book, Iron Man).
Set in an enchanted fantasy world, Gnomes & Goblins takes advantage of room-scale technology to deliver a truly immersive experience. Neither film nor game, it was co-produced and co-published by Wevr and Reality One, and developed using Wevr’s VR character AI framework, providing a native VR experience that goes beyond 360-degree filmmaking.
In the preview -- available for HTC Vive on September 8 via Wevr Transport, Steam and Viveport -- users will meet and develop a personal relationship with an enigmatic resident of this interactive fantasy, taking a first step into exploring the lucid dream of Gnomes & Goblins and its many realms and denizens.
Created by Favreau, Gnomes & Goblins is executive produced by Wevr co-founder and CEO Neville Spiteri and Reality One co-founder Clint Kisker, and produced by Max Geiger and Gigi Pritzker. Jake Rowell (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Final Fantasy) served as creative director alongside acclaimed animation supervisor and animation director Andy Jones (Avatar, The Jungle Book, World War Z).
