Light Sail VR Summons Demons in 'Speak of the Devil' VR Experience, in Collaboration With Google Jumpstart

Viewers Explore Interactive VR Narrative Path With 12 Ways to Die and Only One Way Out (February 13, 2018)

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Hollywood-based virtual reality (VR) studio Light Sail VR today announced the debut of its first original IP: an interactive VR horror experience "Speak of the Devil." With live-action cinematic visuals and game engine-powered interactivity, "Speak of the Devil" brings a dark and sinister twist to the choose-your-own adventure tale in VR. With 12 fatal paths and one way out, viewers are in control of the narrative as they explore and come across different paths that lead them to their bloodcurdling fate.

Speak of the Devil stars actors Michael Grant Terry (Bones, The Archer, Grimm), Taylor Murphy-Sinclair (Fame Dogs) and Mick Ignis (The Sandman, Neighbors 3: Zombies Rising, Hocus Pocus: I Put a Spell on You), and was developed in association with Google's Jumpstart program, which connects filmmakers with top production resources to create high-quality original VR experiences.

The VR experience will be available to download for Samsung Gear VR and Google Daydream headsets for $2.99. The experience will later be available for HTC VIVE and Oculus Rift.

Viewers are transported to a camping ground in the middle of a forest from the perspective of a single camper. They are interrupted by Lindsey (Murphy-Sinclair) and Brian (Terry), a couple setting up a tent nearby. The couple discloses that the purpose of their camping trip is to conduct research for Lindsey's Ph.D thesis on lost civilizations, including one within those same woods. Lindsey's infatuation with the the supernatural leads to a discovery that awakens demonic horrors. The viewer is then left to explore the woods and discover petrifying and unforeseen paths.

Speak of the Devil was shot with the GoPro Odyssey throughout 50 locations in Big Bear, CA, and is one of the first live-action 360 horror experiences to be shot in daylight. The experience and choose-your-own path style narrative leverage the unique viewpoint and capabilities of VR.

The script was written by Light Sail VR's Creative Director/Co-Founder Matthew Celia, who closely collaborated with Co-Founder/Executive Producer Robert Watts to create a layout that strategically interconnects each narrative path, building a unique experience that places the story and audience first.

This project was also in collaboration with LumaForge Systems, who supplied its high-performance storage services, and Wemersive who provided app development, hosting and streaming.
