The Caretaker featured by The Independent

My VR Horror Experience – The Caretaker was featured by The Independent, a national newspaper in the UK! It’s wonderful to have got some recognition from such a respected publication – and it’s equally great news that VR is featuring more heavily in the mainstream media.

The Caretaker is an unofficial homage to one of the greatest horror films created, The Shining, directed by Stanley Kubrick. I hope that in some small way it captures some of the atmosphere of the film and source material. Here’s the intoduction from the article:

Have you ever watched The Shining and thought Jack Nicholson’s character was overreacting a bit?

Well, should you want to put that to the test, you can now tour the very hotel from Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film in virtual reality.

Developed by Franbo, this VR experience uses Oculus technology that’ll permit you to run loose around the Overlook Hotel also featured in Stephen King’s source novel.

If you’d like to download the experience itself, click here and follow the instructions. While the experience is developed specifically for VR, one can still play-through on a conventional screen.
