Studio Duat

We are Studio Duat, a team of two programmers and five artists (environmental modeling, texturing, technical art and animation) who are creating an environmental interpretation of the afterlife based on Egyptian mythology. While producing this piece, we are also preparing a pre-production package for next semester’s studio. We are currently developing this experience for both the Oculus Rift (virtual reality headset) and CAVE (Cave Automatic Virtual Environment, a three-walled projection space with a motion floor). Presenting the same experience across two such different platforms poses a unique design challenge, so we are investigating the features which are common and particular to each platform that enable them as effective immersive experiences, while staying true to the core narrative.
