COLOSSE: A Story in Virtual Reality

COLOSSE (1)
COLOSSE (2)


Intro: ‘COLOSSE’ is a real-time virtual reality storytelling experience, with a stylized, character-focused visual language. An experience that explores viewer directed storytelling in a unique setting. The story of the long lost Great Spirits known as the COLOSSE explores themes of fear, power and respect.

Review: It’s no secret that we love these short VR animated films here at the VR shop and this one is one of the very best. Featuring a character that never speaks he comes across a spirit known only as the COLOSSE. This is a visually driven story that takes you on a rollercoaster ride of experiences and emotions. From fear to pity to respect, watching this you will feel it all.



Verdict: It’s hard to talk about something that you really don’t want to give any spoilers about, but needless to say, it ends just as weird as it starts. What you do get from this short animated film is a great sense of size. from the giant spirit to the little human running around below him, it might be low in polygon count, but yet it still feels strangely realistic. Well worth viewing and great for showing people just how good VR storytelling can be.
