Woob – Tokyo Run now showing in Virtual Reality Wraparound Theatre via Oculus Rift Game Technolust

Technolust is a Virtual Reality game for Oculus Rift currently in development by Blair Renaud and Chris Abell of ‘Iris’ . Along with a handful of other VR games Technolust is regenerating interest in gaming for generations of jaded gamers bored with the constant recycle of military and historical shooters. The game doubled its kickstarter goal back in May and is currently in Beta available to all backers and those who pre-order.

On firing up the game you are transported into a detailed Bladerunner-esque world, which you are free to explore at your own pace. The finished game will also include a Mars colony, wastelands and other area’s and feature’s many worlds within worlds. There’s also a videogame arcade where you can interact with some of the machines and this is where you will find the Tokyo Run cabinet. Shown above being played by a random youtuber you get a rough idea of how that might feel …and what better mind-bending way to view the film!

Clips from Tokyo Run also crop up within the main game dotted around on monitors and billboards as seen below. You can also play the above video from the beginning to see more. (currently it start’s at the arcade)

Woob Ultrascope – Launch Update, Comp results + Reveal Soundtrack Download

PROTOTYPE_NECKAbove: Prototype edition – the R is important in its description!

Last Friday the 13th a new Woob album ULTRASCOPE launched with a live event post. A massive thanks to everyone that got involved and although I managed to get the album out with just a minute to spare (literally) it did mean I missed out joining in on the comments as much as i would have liked. However I have now read through them all and picked three (from whilst the event was happening) of my faves to get the Woob Chrome Goody bag!

Will -“….Keith the Penguin”

Mward2011 –.”…post office”

Gerrit/Alice – “….Woob or Weekend” / “…I’m Stuck cause he’s stuck”

To receive your bag which contains various rare artcards, stickers  and a unique signed copy of Have Landed please contact me through woob.info with your posting details.

Woob – Tokyo Run

Set in the future this is an intense, often disjointed realtime computer simulation of one individuals attempt to access the ‘Mainframe’.

This micro-length animation is a companion piece to the forthcoming short Return to the City. Although the two story-lines are self-contained both films form a part of the Paradigm Flux universe and lay down the foundations for the main story. [Read more…]
