Colosse is a virtual reality, real-time storytelling game in which the player takes on the role of a hunter in a world of abstract, bold graphics.
What do you do?
The storytelling genre is seeing a revival of renewed interest because of VR technology. While using graphics and animation to tell a story is nothing new, VR allows the audience to immersively enter the world of the story and experience it first hand. This is the premise behind Colosse. The developers have created a virtual reality experience, telling their own story in a visually unique medium. The player in this case doesn’t really do much, so just sit back and enjoy and beautiful ride.
Is this even a game?
While it’s not a game in the traditional sense, there is certainly more to do than just watch what’s going on. The VR technology allows you to experience and explore the environment around you in ways that are only just being developed. Think of it as a cutting-edge storytelling experience, showcasing the developing team’s experience, which you get to enjoy for free.
