Noma Labs is hosting a VR experience like no other coming mid March to early April. The group is teaming with HTC and Vertigo Games to create a zombie experience, dubbed Virtually Dead, through the HTC Vive and spanning over a half kilometer. Imagine walking in a space for almost a quarter mile completely surpassing the concept of a room scale VR space.
What is Virtually Dead?
As it reads on their website, “Virtual Reality meets Immersive Theater”
This is a London based virtual experience where groups of around 10 will suit up with the HTC Vive HMD and controllers, then be transported to a small town to provide aid in zombie relief. Before going into battle, users will be guided through an interactive story en route to the zombie-pocalypse.
Vertigo Games is the development studio behind the highly anticipated Arizona Sunshine and rumor has it they will be showing of this game at the Virtually Dead venue.
The production of this experience is said to include 22 actors and it is so terrifying anyone under the age of 18 will not be allowed to enter the area.
As defined by HTC and Valve, room scale virtual reality consists of a space of at least 2m x 1.5m (or 6.5 ft. x 5ft.). The maximum distance supported between base stations is 5m (or 16 ft).
Tickets are running 30.90 pounds after fees for entrance into the hour long experience that anyone with a health condition will want to avoid. This experience officially kicks off on March 17th, but tickets for the first two evenings are already sold out along with a few other dates spread out over the 18 day venue.
If anyone in the UK attends the Virtually Dead experience, we’d love to hear your feedback. Send @htcvrgaming a tweet with the first words used to describe the event.
