Built on Science
Lost City of Mer is a virtual reality experience set in an underwater world of post-climate change apocalypse. This project was originally inspired by the devastating impact of global warming on great ocean environments such as the Great Barrier Reef. The project warns players about the dangers of climate change while rewarding them for lowering their real-world carbon footprint in order to resurrect a magical underwater civilization—Mer.
Based on Fantasy
Drawing on a range of narrative elements, such as science fiction, fantasy and mystery, a lost underwater civilization, destroyed by the ruinous effects of global warming and ocean pollution, has been created in VR.
It combines immersive narrative, game play, and real-world activity using unique VR navigation mechanics and an innovative interface with a phone app.
