Oculus Story Studio are set to play a key part in Oculus VR’s plan for the launch of the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD), with their second 360 degree video project, Henry, already confirmed to be included with the retail package of the device. A new screenshot has now been revealed from this motion-picture project, demonstrating clear similarities to that of Pixar’s work in the field of CGI movies.
Oculus Story Studio is an internal CGI motion-picture house from Oculus VR announced back in January of this year. Their first title, Lost, was a heart-warming tale of a robot hand looking for it’s place in the world. A technological feat, Lost hinted at the kind of design that is needed for a new age of 360 degree video, allowing viewers to understand the story without missing the action by way of subtle gaze cues.
Henry invites players to join a hedgehog of the same name as he prepares for a birthday party. The ever welcoming mammal loves to express his feelings through hugs, but the trouble is, few of his friends like to receive this affection due to his sharp spinney back. A comedy film designed to be suitable for all ages, Henry will launch alongside the Oculus Rift in early 2016. VRFocus is set to learn more details about the project in coming weeks, and will of course keep you updated with all the latest details.
