Description: Enter the world of AWAKE, a ground-breaking first-person cinematic VR thriller, that blurs the line between memories, dreams and reality. In Episode One, you are a new presence in the story of Harry; a man obsessed with solving a mysterious lucid dream. It’s an obsession that has also cost Harry dearly and now he is stuck, waiting for release. You are the witness and it’s time for Harry to wake up! As the ever deepening layers of Harry’s story are revealed a sinister force could lead to Harry breaking one last time. AWAKE presents a rich new genre of immersive cinema, for you to discover.

Review: Awake: Episode One is a short cinematic experience that lasts about 20+ minutes and to be fair was surprisingly good given how short it is. With real-life actors rendered in 3D it was one of those VR experiences that you would be proud to show others (but I wouldn’t show it to little kids as there are some scary moments). Do be aware that you will need at least 2m sq of playspace as there is no teleport option to interact with things. While you might not like the current price you really are paying for the quality of production here rather than content amount, but I feel it is well worth a look.
