Canadian indie Cream Productions has produced a virtual reality science fiction drama starring the Lord of the Rings actor Avatar Dominic Monaghan.
In Dark Threads, players enter a near-future environment to represent their personal narratives. Their memories are gone, so they have to gather the clues with the help of a charitable AI.
Johnny Kalangis, digital vice president of Cream, said: “Dark Threads is a virtual reality adventure that forces players to consider the essence of consciousness, altruism, cruelty and life itself. The experience is like a multiple choice script series with three clearly mysterious endings, each option directly affecting the ending “.
The VR production has been executive produced by Monaghan, David Brady, Kate Harrison Karman, Johnny Kalangis, Andrew MacDonald, Dan Magnus and Tristan Cezair.
Starting July 22, Dark Threads, which has been funded by the Canada Media Fund and Ontario Creates, in addition to Cream Productions, will be available through the Steam gaming platform for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
