“The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind meets Monkey Island in virtual reality”
With a high concept of “The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
meets Monkey Island in virtual reality”, Loading Human is the evolution of the classic ‘point ‘n click’ adventure videogame, utilising the
recent advancements in VR technology to provide an unprecedented level of immersion.
Loading Human has been developed to support the latest VR technology like the forthcoming Oculus Rift headset, and motion-based controllers like Sixense STEM and Razer Hydra, which will simulate the player’s hand movements. The player will naturally interact with the world: pick-up objects, open them or use them just like they would in real life. Whilst experiencing Loading Human, players will hear André's thoughts, control his body with their own, and live his life while the story unravels itself around them.
The original idea for Loading Human came from Italian actor and filmmaker Flavio Parenti (I Am Love, Le Ombre Rosse, and Woody Allen’s To Rome With Love), who became fascinated by Oculus RiftTM and the latest motion-control technology, seeing their potential to provide new levels of interactive immersion for a wider gaming audience.
International coverage for Loading Human has appeared on Gamespot, VG247, Joystiq, Kotaku, Strategy Informer, IGN (Spain), GameStar (Hungary), Computerbild (Germany), Polygamia (Poland), Eurogamer (Italy) and GameSpark (Japan).
