Please, take a seat. You’ll be here for a while. Don’t worry, you won’t be alone. Let these creatures welcome you… They’ll keep you company. Give you a taste of a dark surreal experience. Don’t be afraid just yet… Perhaps they will spare you this time around. After all… the nastiest thing they can do to you will only be virtual. But… then again… You will probably be wishing you were in a real dream.

6. Machine VR

Fractal fly-throughs can be boring – so Julius made this one extra long to make sure you would get super bored. That is unless you start to forget the world around you and let your imagination fill in the fractal void. Every nook and cranny will start to come alive – have a purpose. The deeper you go, the more intense this place will feel. You’ll be so immersed you won’t comprehend that this massive world exists almost entirely in your imagination – since the mathematical formula to create this world is so tiny we could text it to you.

4. Storm

You find yourself stuck outside of a small hut, in a severe snow storm. You can see a car, probably yours, stranded nearby, half covered in snow. As you look around for ways to get inside the house, your body gets colder, your limbs freeze up, and the storm intensifies. Your challenge is to find and combine several items lying around the building to gain entry.

Storm is a virtual reality experience that takes puzzle solving with a sense of urgency to a new level of realism. It manages to evoke primal instincts – survival. And it was designed to be as much a cinematic experience as a game.

This game is a very simple, first version. There are visual and gameplay improvements already in the works, and updates will be made in the near future.
