The Resurrected

The resurrected is a VR experience designed for Oculus Rift using the setting of Michael Jackson’s Thriller. In this game, we use diegetic methods to cue interactors to take actions and imitate the virtual characters. Also, we looked into ways of helping interactors identify their roles in virtual reality. Incentives used include companions to help identify roles, gestures, and diegetic interactions to motivate actions. We hope to further explore the methods in other VR or AR experience.
