Mio Garden, A VR Experience
Nice Shoes Creative Studio has entered the exciting world of Virtual Reality, debuting an immersive and interactive meditative experience “Mio Garden." The piece explores the new storytelling form from a different point of view, aiming to craft a unique experience that would leave a viewer feeling calm and refreshed. Drawn in by the calming nature of the experience and the garden’s Japanese influences, Sapporo engaged as a sponsor for the project. After putting on an HTC Vive headset, users are presented with a virtual can of Sapporo, which transports them to another world. Each user begins the experience in the same manner as they start in a dojo, but once they step outside, they have the choice of going to the left or to the right, encountering unique mini-games inspired by Japanese culture, with both paths culminating in a drum game to garner favor from a gigantic samurai statue.
