If you've ever wondered what the world of South Park would feel like in VR, check out this VR project that was developed by Tool. Tool explains: "We started with three goals in mind for the experiment".
The developer continues: "One, from a tech point of view, to sharpen our Unity and Oculus Rift development skills-two, from a creative point of view, to reimagine a well known story by allowing the user to experience it in the first person and-three, to finish the project in time to share with our friends at the Cannes Lions Advertising Festival".
Tool are fans of South Park, but chose to build a VR demo thanks to South Park's simplistic visuals. Tool's rendition of South Park was inspired by Obsidian Entertainment's South Park: The Stick of Truth, and the intro to Season 17. The developer explains: "felt that a combination of flat cutout characters and more dimensional paper-textured buildings was the way to go".
