We wanted to deliver an authentic Halloween experience by implementing the hallmarks of all classic Hollywood horror films in a horror house environment. With gruesome characters to meet along the spooky journey, we invite the user to an eerie, dark horror house set in a dingy, dystopian world.
Slaughterhouse VR Experience
Remember when Halloween was a lot creepier and spookier? Well we’ve ditched the mainstream commercialisation behind the holiday and we celebrated Halloween the right way.
The Cypha Slaughterhouse is a virtual reality walk-through experience developed especially for the Oculus Rift. The experience invites users into an eerie dilapidated house in an unknown parallel, dystopian world. Dark, dingy and with a bucket load of creepy ambiance, the house presents all the hallmarks of a golden age Hollywood horror classic.
Victims, oh sorry, we mean brave people. Not recommended for the faint of heart
To remind people what Halloween is really about - getting scared and throwing up!
Experimenting with the as-yet-unreleased Oculus, we were able to bring back the horror factor in Halloween through some digital fun.
Fear, fun, crying and hopefully not too many nightmares!
We set aside a day of filming, hired make-up artists and shot our scenes on a green screen. We took these videos and inserted them into a self-made Unity 3D environment, later to be developed into a virtual reality walk-through experience using an Oculus 2 headset for navigation.
