The Burning Room: A Comedy-Horror VR Experience
BetaJester specialise in producing bespoke VR, gaming and immersive solutions for clients across the globe. They create immersive content, rapid prototyping, gamification for research and heritage, as well as idea creation and game design for all leading platforms.
To deliver the project, BetaJester is collaborating with academics from the University of York. The Burning Room has been developed by writer, Jeremy Dyson (The League of Gentleman, Ghost Stories), and BAFTA winning producer, Jon Aird.
The Burning Room is a comedy-horror VR experience transporting you deep into Britain’s torrid industrial past, with its perpetual cycle of decrepit housing and failed renovation. BetaJester will develop a short narrative experience, that will explore game mechanics, narrative approaches and the creation of atmosphere in a VR experience, which will enable the team to pitch for full funding for the final experience.
This project was funded through the Open XR funding call.
