Description: Produced exclusively from real recordings of 911 calls, witness trial testimony and architectural drawings that provide the exact layout of both interiors and exteriors of the condo complex, One Dark Night tells the story of the day teenager Travyon Martin was shot and killed by neighbourhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman.

By anchoring the piece in accurate and unassailable elements, the user becomes transported inside a reliable, albeit a virtual, version of the story as an eyewitness. One Dark Night breaks new ground on multiple levels, including through audio carefully cleaned by forensic specialists Sourcesound and Primeau Productions, with the latter asserting that the reconstructed audio indicates George Zimmerman cocked his gun just before he gave chase.

Review: I get what One Dark Night is trying to do, but I do think it has gone about it the wrong way. There are ALWAYS two sides to every story and this is so one-sided that it is almost laughable. The problem is the app is trying to get across a VERY complex situation and only looks at it from one viewpoint. VR is a good place to tell real-life stories, but at least bring us ALL the facts rather than those that only prop up the propaganda. A good idea for a VR experience wasted in all the wrong ways.
