Kite & Lightning are one of the leading lights of the virtual reality (VR) experience scene right now, moving from the incredible original operatic piece Senza Peso on to more commercial products in recent months. Following the team’s success with The Voice 360: Be the Coach comes Insurgent: Shatter Reality, now available to download for multiple formats.
Insurgent: Shatter Reality casts the viewer as a ‘Divergent’, captured by Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet) and her Erudite faction. Displeased with your ability to push beyond the norms of humanity, the viewer is subjected to a series of mental ‘simulations’ by Matthews to determine the full extent of your divergence. These experiments include death defying situations designed to induce fear and other emotions, aided significantly by the power of VR and the high production values of Kite & Lightning’s work.
Developed as a teaser for the forthcoming motion-picture release, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, set to arrive in cinemas 20th March 2015, Insurgent: Shatter Reality is now available to download for Oculus Rift development kits via Oculus Share and for the Gear VR via the Oculus Home app. A Google Cardboard version is also available, and VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest releases from Kite & Lightning.
