Description: Digital Domain’s Monkey King is a visually-captivating, cinematic storybook experience told in virtual reality. Forged from 16th-century Chinese mythology and brought to life through the power of VR the tale of Sun Wukong will unfold around you like never before. Jump into this truly immersive experience and journey with Wukong along with his search for the ways of the warrior in this tale of tragedy, magic and conquest.

Review: Digital Domain’s Monkey King is a non-interactive VR animated story in which you follow along with the adventures of Sun Wukong (aka: The Monkey King) This person in Chinese, is a legendary figure best known as one of the main characters in the 16th-century Chinese novel Journey to the West and many later stories and adaptations. The Monkey King’s origins predate the novel and can be traced back to the Song dynasty. This is an animated adventure starring him and at 30 minutes runtime, this is more a full mini-movie than anything I have seen before. OK, so it’s not as gorgeous to look at anything from Oculus Studios but is well worth the £3.99 asking price.
