Embody
Piloted by movement and whole-body engagement and dialogue, this shared game of trading and transforming avatars aims to leave players with a deep feeling of physical embodiment and surprise at their bodies' forgotten potential.

Emergence
Enter an open-world environment, expressing the primal desire to maintain your individual identity whilst being part of a crowd. Showing over five thousand intelligent human behaviors, this powerful VR experience is made possible by advanced graphics technology.

Gloomy Eyes
1983, Woodland City. Being a zombie is against the law. Like all of his kind, young Gloomy is hiding in the forest, away from bounty hunters. But Gloomy is different. While bitterness plagues the city, he strives to find a balance in his mysterious dual nature.

A Jester's Tale
Experience the viscerality of a psychologically taxing children’s fable merging with the physicality of our world, as you come home cold and tired, just in time for a bedtime story. In this interactive augmented reality narrative the characters you see through the Magic Leap headset are just hollow meshes, but maybe so are you.

REACH
A next-generation VR photobooth allowing attendees to step inside the story. Users can be captured in dimensionalized video, placed into one of several “walk around” environments, and automatically create a volumetric VR experience that can be viewed on any device and shared online.

Runnin'
This interactive dance experience takes the player on a journey of musical expression. Play along with the music in an intimate neighborhood record store and be transported to a retro-future dance party. Show off your moves on the dance floor alongside a troupe of dancers.

Sweet Dreams
An invitation to the meal of your dreams. But will it remain a dream, forever out of reach? Drawing on mythological archetypes, the project turns a fine-dining experience into a playful exploration of the destructive nature of our appetite and our debt to pleasure.

Traveling While Black
Confronting the way we understand and talk about race in America, this virtual reality documentary immerses the viewer in the long history of restriction of movement for black Americans and the creation of safe spaces in our communities.
