Last fall I met a new friend, a very nice man with an oculus rift and a recording of a British person reading The Raven. “I have a really good idea,” he said, and he told me his idea, and it was good, and he had an accent too except his was German. Everything was going according to plan. “Okay,” I said, “I’m in.”
My friend Tom and I are working on a virtual reality experience of Edgar Allan Poe’s famous poem The Raven. We’ve been working on it on and off since the fall. Things are still far from done, but I want to start sharing some of the work we’re doing here on the blog because, well, it’s really exciting, and I don’t post enough. I’ve been working on drawing designs for the VR environment and Tom is working up the models and game engine. I’ll have lots of examples to show you in the coming months, so stay tuned.
I’ll have more details on the project as things progress. If you’d like to help support the process, Tom has set up a Patreon page where you can contribute to the cause.
