Abe VR

ABE VR is a cinematic VR experience based on the multi-award winning short film, by Rob McLellan, and is the first ever virtual reality experience to be officially certified by the British Board of Film Classification (as a 15 age rating). It was selected for the BAFTA VR showcase.

Created in Unreal Engine, ABE is a virtual recreation of the original story about a misguided robot seeking the unconditional love of humans… at whatever cost.

With remarkably intense results, the film explores the emotional connection and heightened sense of empathy that VR delivers as a storytelling medium – introducing new techniques to enhance the feeling of presence, such as the eye tracking between ABE and us as a character, and the sense of physical restriction the user experiences.

It’s the psychological potential of VR film as a storytelling platform that Abe manages to convey so well
