CITY OF SAND
A NARRATIVE VR EXPERIENCE...
...inspired by the true story of Bayocean, Oregon, a turn of the 20th century coastal resort town that was washed away into the Pacific when they built too much, too fast.
On a stormy night in the resort’s crumbling old hotel, you will discover how to use your grandfather's magical “sandpunk” contraptions to travel through time and uncover the town’s lost secrets.
At its core, City of Sand is a story about climate change and how our desire to build and create wealth without considering the consequences on the natural world has created a global crisis. Players’ interactions with the environment determine how the story will unfold and offer a chance to explore possible approaches to big existential problems, all within a world of curious contraptions, magical sand spirits, and time travel.
