After the tragic death of their 5-year-old son, a family struggles with his loss and attempts to mend their frayed bonds. Experience the struggle through the child’s ghostly eyes and explore Afterlife’s multiverse of different realities as the family acknowledges his absence, or presence, in their own lives. Using a cutting-edge VR filming technique, Afterlife takes the audience through branching narratives that seamlessly reveals a story that shifts based on the characters that the player chooses to follow and the objects activated within the environment.

We Happy Few: Uncle Jack Live VR is an interactive extension from the video game We Happy Few, developed by Compulsion Games. We combined cinematic and CGI styles to bring a dynamic piece where players will have access to the game’s archives and the chance to build a full news broadcast with Uncle Jack, the main antagonist and celebrity figure of the town Wellington Wells.

In-studio, users will decide what type of articles go live, each article effecting Uncle Jack’s reaction. Good or bad he will try to maintain the town under a controlled state of mind called ‘joy’.

Unfold your child's imagination through origami and augmented reality. With My Paper World, kids will explore a world in trouble, full of pollution that needs to be removed using their creations such as trees, animals and more!
