Hawkins upside down

Is a concept VR project inspired by Stranger Things.

The basic premise is that Will Byers has once again unknowingly slipped into the Upside Down, and it is up to the newfound "13" to use her special abilities to save him and bring him home to the town of Hawkins.

This concept piece allows the player to embody Will Byers and slip into the Upside Down when he's left at home alone.

The project has been built in Unreal Engine 4 for room-scale VR with the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift in mind.

The house in the experience is an approximation of the Byers household, using the same wallpaper texture in the main room, and same dimensions/room layout with furniture and textures changed for the sake of building this project.

Note: The videos of gameplay are not representative of the possible visual quality seen in the headset due to video capture overhead. The screen shots above are far more accurate and all come from the game engine. They are NOT pre-rendered.
