Hey friends, so as I’ve previously announced, I was going to be exploring the vast wonders that is the Tribeca Film Festival and while there are a ton of interesting films to check out, there are a score of other things to examine. One of them was this “Game Of Thrones” centric VR experience called “The Dead Must Die”. Take a look at the description and some images that my friend Dani from Royal Flush took when I was giving it a once over.
About The Experience: The VR encounter is called ““The Dead Must Die: A Magic Leap Encounter” and its a collaboration between the folks at Magic Leap and HBO. It’s an “immersive encounter” that uses a device called the Magic Leap One headset. Wearing this will bring the wearer into a “confrontation” with the wights themselves and it all culminates with a showdown with a White Walker.
Piercing Ken Thoughts: So as described, you put on a pair of these VR headphones and goggles and by doing so the world you are looking at comes to life. There is fire where there really isn’t and of course a few zombie wights where they really aren’t since such things don’t exist in this reality and thank goodness for that. It’s a very quick experience to participate in but I did enjoy it and it makes for a greater appreciation for the currently in progress “Game Of Thrones” series. As you most likely know, this series will end for good in the coming weeks and all are wondering who will be the final person standing and will claim the Iron Throne. Oh and before I close up you might be wondering if I ended up beating the White Walkers, well I sure did and then I had a bottle of that awesome Bai fruit juice drink that was being handed out all around the center. If you see that stuff in the grocery store make sure you grab one or three as its very good.
