Back in August VRFocus reported on Kite & Lightning resurrecting its virtual reality (VR) mini opera Senza Peso for current head-mounted displays (HMD). Today the experience has gone live on Steam with support for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
Originally debuting back in 2014 on the Oculus Rift Development Kit 1 (DK1), Senza Peso is described: “As a soul transitioning into the afterlife, Senza Peso shepherds you on a spiritual journey through a beautiful and foreboding dark world of lost souls and redemption.”
The experience was a VR adaption of a short film by Cory Strassburger & Alain Vasquez – Strassburger co-founded Kite & Lightning with Ikrima Elhassan – in which viewers become the protagonist and personally experience the metamorphosis from death to eternity.
Kite & Lightning is currently working on multiplayer brawler Bebylon: Battle Royale, which involves babies remote-controlling a vehicle-mounted baby in an arena of death. These vehicles are armed with giant fists which can punch and slap opponents along with other offensive weaponry.
