Description: Through mind-bending animation, explore the limits of reality and a true story of so-called ‘schizophrenia’ and the power of gaming communities. Echo (narrated by Tilda Swinton) guides you through the many realities of Goliath, a man who spent years isolated in psychiatric institutions but finds connection in multiplayer games. Combining heartfelt dialogue, mesmerising visuals and symbolic interactions, weave through multiple worlds to uncover Goliath’s poignant story.




Review: ‘Goliath is a free interactive experience app that is a sort of cinematic experience based around someone’s thoughts and feelings living with schizophrenia. At times it’s weird, at times it’s even a little scary, but it is also a beautiful thing that really helps put you into the shoes of the man telling his story. Lasting just over 20 mins it is not something you will want to watch more than once, but it is at least free and well worth a view. VR storytelling is a much-overlooked medium that I would love to see more of, especially when it is as good as this one.
