Take a VR Tour of Rick Deckard’s Apartment from Blade Runner #cyberpunk
Blade Runner 9732 is a virtual tour of Rick Deckard’s Meso-American chic apartment from Ridley Scott’s 1982 cyberpunk classic, Blade Runner. The tour is a labor of love by developer Quentin Lengele.
Blade Runner 9732 is a hobby job done during free time, nights, weekends, and vacations, with zero budget. The project started in 2014 when I decided to put myself virtually inside of my favorite movie scene — Deckard’s balcony view in Blade Runner.
If you’ve ever wanted to have a drink on the balcony of Deckard’s 97th floor apartment, or start up his Esper machine, or play his piano, or drink his whiskey, here’s your chance.
You need HTC Vive to view it in VR mode or you can watch in in first-person shooter mode. It is currently PC-only.
Here is a video walk-through.
