DEEP @ Cinekid
Last year we gave Owen Harris the opportunity to showcase his proof of concept called DEEP for the very first time. DEEP is a wonderful meditative breathing experience made for Virtual Reality devices such as the Oculus Rift. After seeing DEEP at Playful Arts Festival 2014, Cinekid New Media head Paulien Dresscher introduced Owen to Niki Smit (Monobanda Play). They are now collaborating on making a new version of DEEP. The game is part of Cinekid’s Media Lab where they will launch a multiplayer version of the game. Cinekid also announced a partnership with Radboud University to research the game.
