ORIGINAL NEWS (26/07/2018):
Secret Location, responsible for titles such as Blasters of the Universe, has announced the adaptation to virtual reality of the science fiction story The Great C by American writer Philip K. Dick, who was also known for works such as “The Man in the Castle” and ” Do androids dream of electric sheep?”, the latter being the literary source of Blade Runner.
The Great C is a cinematic experience that takes place after an apocalyptic event. Years after this incident, a powerful supercomputer powered by an AI called Great C rules over what remains of humanity. Every year, a nearby village is forced to send a young man on pilgrimage to inform the AI, a journey for which no one returns. In our case, we will follow Clare, a woman whose husband is summoned for the pilgrimage, which will lead her to debate among herself whether to accept the rules of society or fight against them.
The animated short, which lasts more than 30 minutes and features 20 different environments, is generated in real time and the effects, such as the “dynamic scale” during scenes, emulate the feeling of the camera movements, lens and transitions of a traditional movie.
The Great C will first hit VR hubs in September and hit the homes of Rift, Vive and PSVR users in the last quarter of the year. It will also be at The Biennale di Venezia, which will take place from 29 August to 8 September.
