Description: Volumetric History – A free educational project about epoch-making events and people in the history of Russia, implemented in the form of exciting mini-games and videos in 360 formats. The project supports Virtual Reality (VR) technology! The story becomes voluminous, interesting and informative!

Review: Unless you have some interest in Russian history and indeed you can read Russian text ‘Объемная История’ is not for you. /while mostly a cinematic experience there are some interactive elements like the maps that you can move about. ‘Объемная История’ which translates as “Volumetric History” also features a collection of 5 360° videos. There is “Baptism of Russia”, “Liberation of Moscow from Poles”, “Shipyards of Peter”, “Capture of the Reichstag 1945” & “Gagarin’s flight into space”.

To be fair the animation inside each video is pretty good and there are also a few models to hold and a short quiz to enjoy. It is at least free which is a good thing because all the videos are freely available on Youtube anyway. If you are looking up the history of Russia it might be worth a look, but most people will avoid it like the plague given the current war situation. While the voice narration is in Russian you can still get the gist of what is going on, but it would have been nice to have English subtitles as well. Anyway, it’s you think you might be interested, do give it a go!
