About

WHAT IS METAVERSE MOVIES?

'The Netflix for Virtual Reality'?  www.metaverse.movie

The big vision for METAVERSE MOVIES is to be a growing anthology of short story experiences specifically written and produced to take advantage of the immersive power of real Virtual Reality with its stunning 360° visuals and 3D Spatial Audio to deliver amazing stories in a wholly unique and compelling way.

USER EXPERIENCE & FORMAT

  • Each story can be enjoyed either in a seated or standing position and the user has the choice to engage with the included interactivity or just relax and watch.
  • Each story is designed to be around 10 minutes in length with a focus on the highest quality production values throughout.

REAL VR - NOT 360° VIDEOS

360° films are great and definitely have an important their place in the VR universe, but this is NOT what the Metaverse Movie platform is about, all stories will be built in game engines to provide the most high-end immersive experience.

INSPIRED BY THE GREATEST

Metaverse Movie content is inspired by the past anthology series like; Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Tales of the Unexpected, The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits and Are you Afraid of the Dark.

Metaverse Movies is inspired by these great series
Metaverse Movies is inspired by these great series

These short story dramas, thrillers, crime, mystery and horror stories often contained cleverly crafted twists.

The social and cultural activity of sharing stories is as old as time itself. Every culture has its own stories or narratives, which are shared as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation or even instilling moral values. 

With Metaverse Movies you will be truly immersed in the story, be that as a fly on the wall or as one or more of the characters.

Maybe your interactions will even change the outcome of the story...

THE NETFLIX OF VIRTUAL REALITY?

As the library of stories grows, you will be able to pick the type of story you are in the mood for, similarly as you would do with movies on a film subscription platform like Netflix.

Metaverse Movies Genres
Metaverse Movies Genres

Below are some of the story ideas already planned with a brief description and the genre.

We want this to be community driven, so if you have your own ideas, then reach out on Social Media.

Once the Kickstarter is funded, as a backer, you will take your prestige place upon the 'Board of Producers' where you will be entitled to vote on the order of which title gets made first. This will, of course depend on how many of the stretch goals have been achieved.

HOW CAN I WATCH A METAVERSE MOVIE?

Metaverse Movies are being built specifically to look beautiful for mid-range standalone VR headsets such as the Oculus Quest and Vive Cosmos.

Metaverse Movie content will of course also look amazing for anyone who owns higher end Headsets such as the Oculus Rift, Rift S, HTC Vive, HTC Vive Pro, Windows Mixed Reality & Valve Index.

(NOTE: At this stage we have no plans to make this content compatible for Playstation VR)

HOW THE FUNDING WILL BE USED

We're taking a STRETCH GOAL approach to ensure we can have the best chance of getting the ball rolling.

From our experience of building VR content, we are confident that achieving our Initial Kickstarter goal of £25,000 will give us enough funding to build the first story for the platform, each subsequent stretch goal of £25,000 will empower us to add subsequent titles and grow the platform content.

 All of the money raised will be invested in content creation and as a backer, you will have a vote in what gets made first. Naturally with a scale of economy, the more we raise, the faster we will be able to produce and roll out the stories you would love to see in VR.

Check out the rewards we're offering and please consider donating, even a donation of £10 gets you the first movie to keep for life AND we have added a really cool free BONUS of our first VR title;  SteamHammerVR - The Rogue Apprentice' (Value £11) You do the math!

There are also some unique Reward Opportunities for you to be in these movies yourself! How AMAZING is that?

Thank you for supporting us. This kind of project simply cannot happen without you!

WHY KICKSTARTER?

Three years ago we came to Kickstarter to help fund our first VR project SteamHammerVR The Rogue Apprentice. 

Alas, VR was in its infancy back then, so both of our  Kickstarter campaigns failed...but that didn't stop us. Through hard work and perseverance, we pursued our dream and found a way to make and release the game!

Right now there are hundreds of thousands more Virtual Reality users across the world and we believe that the time is right to reach out to the community again to help drive this project and in time make it one of the most fantastic collections of unique amazing VR story experiences.  

WE NEED YOUR HELP

Please take a moment to like and follow our social media and community accounts on the services you use  Facebook •  Twitter   •  YouTube  Then encourage your friends and fellow VR fans to do the same – these signups allow us to build enthusiasm for the campaign and communicate important updates.
