Ahorse – a cinematic VR installation

Ahorse is a cinematic VR installation produced and directed by Wendy Gutman. A 360 video transitions into a 3D world which is experienced on horseback. The installation consists of a VR headset combined with a small motion platform. The motion platform has an inflatable and moving saddle as well as a virtual set of reigns that allows the user to control direction and speed. Oddz made modifications to the AI way-point software that controls the horse in order to allow the user some degree of freedom in choosing their path through the virtual world. Oddz also created the software that links all functions of the motion platform with the virtual world experience through an Arduino.

Ahorse   is currently touring all major VR festivals worldwide.

VR multiplayer obstacle course

In collaboration with The VR Room we created a VR multiplayer experience aimed at people new to virtual reality. A simple obstacle course set in an environment to get the most from a first time VR experience, yet with enough of a challenge to make the competition element fun if you want it to be.

Redend the game

If you are fond of games like Candy Crush but don’t like those colours that give you dental caries just by looking at them. If you would like a game a little more steam punk. If you would like a design that would have made Jheronimus Bosch proud and if you like the stop-motion animation film Red-end and the Factory Plant then this is the game for you.

In 50 beautifully crafted levels (more to follow in later versions) you battle your way to solve puzzles while you find yourself mired in slices of Pitcher Plant, blocked by bulky iron plates, confined in cast iron cages or pursued by carnivorous plants. You will be limited in the number of moves or the amount of time available.

When you complete a level while achieving the goals set for that level you will be granted a Torscar (the film Oscar in the world of insects). Based on the world depicted by the stop-motion animation film Red-end and the Factory Plant. You will find much imagery from that film in this game.

We hope you enjoy it.

Available now on the Apple App store, the Google Play Store and all Amazon Web Stores.

I am not scared of the dark!

New screen Dark

We have made 2 changes to our iPad app I am not scared! First, it is now no longer called ‘Scared!’, but ‘I am not scared!’ instead. Much more postive approach, we thought. ‘I am not scared!’ gives children and parents or teachers the opportunity to talk about their fears. And children who are able to talk are much more likely to overcome their fears. Hence the new title.

We have also added a new screen: Dark. Being scared of the dark is one of the most common fears among children. That is why ‘I am not scared!’ now features a great drawing of a big and scary dark. If you know which buttons to push, the dark will gradually lift and reveal what was there all along…
