The organisers of Megashow: Games. Music. Art have announced that the upcoming show in Atlanta, USA will feature a showcase of virtual reality (VR) experiences. Four different VR experiences will be on offer to attendees.
MEGASHOW: Games. Music. Art. Is a travelling event created by the minds behind MegaBooth. The event is designed to shine a light on innovative indie communities and the content they create. The organisers have revealed that four VR experiences will be available for visitors to the one-day event to try out.
The experiences on offer are as follows:
- Chocolate by Tyler Hurd/Viacom NEXT – A psychedelic music video for the song Chocolate by Giraffage starring lots of sparkles and lots of cats.
- Chroma Lab by Sean Tann – An interactive particle physics sandbox game. A joyful explosion of light and color. Like playing with thousands of multicolor bubbles.
- Space Pirate Trainer by I-Illusions – Space Pirate Trainer is the “official trainer” for wannabe space pirates. Pick up your blasters, put on your sneakers, and dance your way into the Space Pirate Trainer hall of fame.
- Tilt Brush by Google – Paint life-size three-dimensional brush strokes, stars, light, and even fire. Experience painting as you have never before.
“VR is still really new and for the most part only developers and early adopters of the technology have had the opportunity to check out all these super cool VR experiences! In the early planning stages of the MEGASHOW event series, I knew for certain that providing VR demos, whether it be games or experiences, was an important component that I wanted to include,” said Kelly Wallick, Head of MEGASHOW: Games. Music. Art. and Indie MEGABOOTH. “In addition to these curated experiences, we wanted feature local indie communities and provide a nice cross-section of talent between the participating game developers, musicians and visual artists. The MEGASHOW is bringing together some great Atlanta-based indie talent alongside hand-picked installation pieces to give attendees a unique festival experience.”
