Our VR experiences
Notionism is not part of our philosophy, but surely we do not renounce extreme reliability with respect to historical sources. We take care of the most minute details in a “maniacal” way from an architectural point of view. Furthermore, our reconstructions of the ancient settings and characters are extremely accurate. In this regard, we are deeply rigorous also thanks to the contribution of the scientific directors who have helped us with their expertise in each historical period.
Come to discover the countless houses and monuments, do not miss a visit to the many shops and taverns scattered all around the reconstructed scenario, approach the animals (not yet to be caressed) and look out for the ancient architectures. Last but not the least, you can also interact with the multitude of talking characters, carefully dressed according to the fashion of the time.
Descend with Dante and Virgil into terrifying hell among the damned souls.
Have fun with an exciting discovery of modern objects in the medieval scenery, or with a hunt, both on the ground and in the air, for scary night monsters. If, on the other hand, you are passionate about Egypt, do not miss Abydos, a game about the cartouches of the pharaohs.
Our company can design and implement, through the experience already acquired with our works, any other architectural and environmental reconstruction based on the needs of external clients, with the usual maximum historical reliability which ensures emotionally enjoyable experiences.
