VR Noir: A Day Before The Night is an interactive entertainment project created specifically for emerging virtual reality platforms. The project will draw on the creators history of blending strong narrative experiences with engaging interactive game design. Audiences will be invited into this story to play the role of a detective on a case and see the world as she does using 360 degree live action photography blended with CG environments. Borrowing from established Film Noir tropes, the project will place the audience in a familiar genre to aid their transition into this radically different storytelling approach.  

The story pulls the audience into the shoes of Veronica Coltrane, a burnt out private detective with mounting debts and a dark past. The audience will be compelled to engage in the investigation as part of an interactive VR experience, making choices and using their powers of observation whilst being caught up in a high stakes drama where they themselves are soon implicated.

VR Noir: A Day Before The Night is the pilot prologue leading into a 6 part episodic VR series.
