Description: Gnomes & Goblins is an original production from Wevr (theBlu) that offers players a unique opportunity to explore an enchanted VR world created by Jon Favreau (director of The Jungle Book, Chef, Iron Man). In this preview, players meet and develop a personal relationship with an enigmatic resident of this interactive fantasy, taking a first step into the lucid dream of Gnomes & Goblins and its many realms and denizens. Gnomes & Goblins is developed using Wevr’s VR character AI framework and is available on the Wevr Transport network. Gnomes & Goblins is co-produced and co-published by Wevr and Reality One.
Review: There is no sugar coating this, Gnomes & Goblins is one great looking VR interactive experience that for a short while fully immerses you. This was supposed to be a ‘preview’ for a full game, but sadly it seems like that will never happen. So you are left with a wonderfully magical free experience that the little ones and us adults can enjoy. Just don’t get your hopes up of this ever becoming a full game and just enjoy this fun little preview.
