Chernobyl VR Project allows us to visit the home of a nuclear disaster.
This piece of news genuinely gets me a bit excited. The Farm 51 are a team from Poland that are bringing us into the nuclear disaster of Chernobyl. The project combines video games with educational software and you should check out the video below to find out more!
With the rise of VR in 2016, I am sure we will look back in 10 years time and realise that this was the dawn of a new era in gaming!
The Synopsis for the game/app reads as follows…
Chernobyl VR Project is a very special project by The Farm 51, a software developer from Gliwice, as it combines video games with educational software. It is the very first virtual tour around the Chernobyl and Pripyat area, compatible with multiple VR headsets, such as Oculus, Morpheus, Vive, or the mobile Samsung Gear VR solution. The Farm 51 has already visited the site, preparing the
project and collecting visual content.
Chernobyl VR Project is a unique combination of video game fun and an interactive documentary describing the history and geography of the polluted zone. Visit Chernobyl without leaving home! We aim to release the application close to the disaster’s 30th anniversary (April 2016).
