You can download the new installers below:

Windows 8+ Update: USB Key | VHX Streaming 
Mac OS X 10.9+ Update: USB Key | VHX Streaming 

Note to OS X users: The new version only supports Virtual Reality on PC due to Oculus dropping OS X support. But the update for OS X contains important performance and bug fixes!

CLOUDS @ MoMA “Slithering Screens”

Jonathan and James were honored to present CLOUDS alongside an illustrious line up of four other Sundance New Frontier projects from the last 10 years during "Slithering Screens". On April 25th, we led the audience through a directors’ tour of the film on stage, showcasing a selection of content as well as using the Story Engine to let the audience drive with their curiosity through questions posed to the conversation network.
