Virgo’s Water Planet is a Virtual Reality Space Exploration Game #ArtTuesday

From Creators:

“It evolved from creating visuals for my live performance, and then those early levels ended up being the framework for what is now the VR game,” Virgo tells Creators, referring to the genesis of the project. The cinematic quality of the visuals and palpable synergy with the music are executed in a way that could only be achievable in virtual reality.

She explains, “VR has the ability to transport you, and even if the graphics are not hyperreal, the spatialization of sound and image in 3D space creates the illusion of reality before the eyes. I want to raise awareness for the medium itself and to hopefully encourage people to think for a moment about the future of Earth, especially the oceans.”

After putting on a headset, the transportation to an alien world is almost instant. The viewer finds themselves suspended in front of a galactic membrane. They enter the first level, swimming, jumping, and gliding through landscapes, while enveloped in the danceable beats and soft ambient sounds characteristic of Virgo’s music. Imagine free diving underwater without the burden of an oxygen tank, then subsequently exploring alien ruins and temples.
