What happens to a family when they lose someone too soon? What happens to you, when you are right there with them – watching?
That’s a question posed by Signal Space Lab in their new title, Afterlife. The developer’s upcoming VR experience tries to show that coming face to face with death doesn’t have to be uncomfortable; it can also be moving, touching, and deeply meaningful.
Entirely new technology was developed to film the live-action story with branching narratives that weave seamlessly in and out between storylines. It sounds almost like a mix of Her Story and Gone Home with a VR headset.
Afterlife is set to release in May, 2019 on Oculus Rift, Oculus Go, GearVR, Steam, HTC Vive, PlayStationVR, and for mobile devices on iOS and Android. Part 1 of 3 will be free to try out, and the complete experience will be $9.99 USD, which is reasonable for such a unique experience.
