Virtual Reality Experience

South African director Rick Treweek’s virtual reality experience Uncanny Alley, winner at the Raindance Festival in the Best Immersive World 2022 section, explores the current state of the Metaverse from a small corner of the virtual universe VRChat.

VRChat is an ever-expanding universe driven by a passionate community creating and sharing virtual worlds, avatars and interactive experiences since 2015. An active and open social environment where we can interact in real time with other users while navigating through fascinating worlds, which we can also create ourselves. From this platform, the Uncanny Alley project addresses various topics and concepts of the Metaverse based on the real world, drawing inspiration from the communities that are building the foundations of the open Metaverse such as M3 (Metaverse Makers) and The MVC (Metaverse Crew).

During the experience, we follow Gh0st, Glitch and other Metazins as they navigate their little part of the Metaverse. Gh0st has disappeared while working on systems to cross worlds, so we follow the clues and revelations of this immersive universe until we eventually discover an existence beyond what seemed possible, where the fourth wall of the Metaverse is broken, revealing a glimpse of the open Metaverse.
