In a video published to Instagram previously today, Grammy-nominated DJ/producer Deadmau5 teased a brand-new Virtual Reality job being developed along with game art workshop Upsurge Studios and game technology studio Geodesic Games utilizing Epic Games’Unreal
Engine. Throughout the 30-second clip we catch a look at what appears to be some kind of advanced club setting featuring wall surfaces of colorful strobe lights as well as looming video displays. Loading this transcendent place are a number of dancing mau5 individuals, a cow, as well as what appears to be a digital depiction of the artists now-famous cat, Professor Meowingtons.
18 secs right into the video you can detect what seems a menu wheel tied to the left hand of the player. On it are numerous choices, consisting of “System,” “Snapping,” “Modes,” as well as “Gizmo.” Whether gamers will certainly have the ability to personalize their experience remains to be seen; it’s completely possible this clip was taken by the group while in designer setting.
As for what this experience will certainly entail, your assumption is comparable to mine. No question there will some kind of musical aspect involved. Maybe Deadmau5 is teasing the launch of his own VR-based live performance platform akin to that of Sansar or Wave. The EDM tale has actually currently executed real-time for a Virtual Reality target market back in 2016 as part of a cooperation with Absolut Vodka.
No word yet on when we can anticipate to learn more regarding this strange virtual undertaking.
