The Virtual Reality Company (VRC) has announced that its working on an original virtual reality (VR) animated series to all major VR platforms called Raising A Rukus.
The animated series will be about the adventures of a brother and sister and their dog, Rukus. Robert Stromberg, winner of two Academy Awards and current Chief Creative Officer of VRC is producing the new immersive series.
“VRC’s vision for ‘Raising a Rukus’ was to create an experience that allows viewers to step into this world and connect emotionally with these lovable and endearing characters and their stories in a way that only VR can make possible,” said Stromberg. “VRC is working to bring thrilling VR worlds to life through stories that will be memorable, thought provoking and entertaining to people around the world.”
VRC said that Raising A Rukus will feature branching narratives that allow the audience to follow the story of a specific character in order to see a story from differing perspectives. The creators hope this will allow the audience to better bond with the characters in a way that will keep them returning for further adventures.
“VRC has brought together the best artists, storytellers, filmmakers and technicians who are working to create impactful and immersive VR experiences that will bring people face-to-face with imagination,” said Guy Primus, co-founder and CEO of VRC. “‘Raising a Rukus’ is one of many milestone VR experiences we will announce and release in 2017. This is the premium VR experience that people have been waiting for, and we know they will be thrilled.”
A firm release date has not been set, but VRC say it should begin distribution to all major VR platforms, both high-end and mobile VR in the Spring.
