Henry (Oculus Rift)

Description: Narrated by Elijah Wood, and developed with former creative talent on the Brave and Toy Story 3 teams, Henry is the story of a little hedgehog with a big problem…he loves to hug! After ending up alone on his birthday, he’ll make a wish that changes everything.

Review: It is no secret that we love these short 360° animation films here in the VR shop office and there is always an argument over who will get to be the first to watch them. Henry was the first 360 animation from Oculus Story Studio’s and is still one of the very best. The story follows the day of a cute and very spiky looking hedgehog called Henry. It’s his birthday and he has party food, a birthday banner and of course some balloons. Sadly, Henry soon forgets what he is doing and gives one of the balloon animals a cwtch (hug). You don’t need me to tell you what happens when a hedgehog hugs a balloon, but I also won’t tell you what happens after that. This is a rollercoaster ride of emotions that feels so much more immersive than you would possibly think.
