Description: The Art Theft by Jay Doherty is an interactive VR narrative that injects 3D drawings created by the user into a whimsical world and unfolding narrative. Made by Tilt Brush Artist in Residence Jay Doherty and Tilt Brush co-creator Patrick Hackett, this interactive story allows you to bring your imagination to life in a reimagined “Mad Libs” VR experience. The Art Theft takes users down a rabbit hole with new friends Butch the Bear, Wesley the Wolf, and Mr. Maple the Goat, who make you feel like you’re on a classic heist.

Review: ‘The Art Theft by Jay Doherty’ is an interactive VR experience that sees you painting various things with a basic set of paint tools and then the app using those things in a short story. So it asks you to draw a self-portrait, something you eat and so forth. While it doesn’t last much longer than the time it takes to download and install it was one of those VR experiences that you can happily enjoy and it should be OK for little ones as well (but some of the later scenes are a little dark and menacing). It’s well worth a look, even if you only ever play it once.
