Description: Cairo’s Tale: The Big Egg is a VR animated short about the adventure of young mage Cairo and his best friend. Cairo is the youngest member of the big mage Family BoBo. He was born with great talent and good at the magic of creation. But Cairo can’t concentrate on doing one thing for long. He likes playing tricks and living leisurely. Taking a nap on the meadow is his favourite part of the day, and that’s why he barely sees his growth in magic power.

Clusterclucked was brought by Cairo’s father when Cairo was a baby. This fellow’s backstory is a mystery, but that doesn’t affect him from being the best friend and nanny of Cairo. Clusterclucked is quite light-hearted, has a poor memory and likes singing songs that nobody understands. One day, a giant egg falls off and breaks the roof of Cairo’s flying house, just in front of Cairo and Clusterclucked. Though being afraid, they decide to figure out what happened…

Review: While there is some interaction in the main menu ‘Cairo’s Tale: The Big Egg’ is a non-interactive animated story about a chick called ‘Cairo’ and without spoiling anything it is filled with magic, fantastic animation, colour and a whole load of emotion thrown in for good measure. While less than 10 minutes long if you like animated short films like Henry this is well worth a look. Just be aware that there is no game here, just amazing animation and storytelling in a 360 environment.
