Quanero is an experimental VR experience for the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift. Your goal is to figure out what caused a violent incident in a futuristic bar by manipulating the time. You can slow down time, reverse it or bring it to a halt. Explore the scene, unlock the story's branch points and unravel the mystery. There's also an explosion. Quanero was created with Unreal Engine 4 and can be downloaded for free.Background InformationThe possibility of experiencing stories in virtual reality offers completely new challenges to the art of storytelling. The traditional work of directing and the function of the cameraman have to be reconsidered completely, as the player is able to choose his point of view and position.
We have tackled this challenge in our final bachelor project Quanero and even went one step further: in this experience, we also give the player complete control over the time. Thus, it is possible to move forward and backwards in time, to stop it or to view the action in slowmotion from every perspective in the room. We're offering the player a new and extremely immersive experience. The goal of the experience is to find the source of the devastating chain reaction which climaxes in an explosion.
Quanero was developed specifically for HTC Vive. VR technology enables you to feel like you're in this futuristic bar, partaking in a brawl or a drug deal and finding yourself in a spectacular explosion with debris raining down on you.

This project was created by students from the University of Applied Sciences Salzburg's MultiMediaArt and MultiMediaTechnology degree program. The content was created with several 3D applications and textured with the help of substance painter and designer. Body and facial expressions were acted out by professional actors and digitized with a motion capture system.

Quanero VR reviews and comments

To be honest, I have no Idea if you have more Interaction than just controlling time, the Idea is good, but you can't influence anything. And if I do, I either read a little seriously in the Tutorial, and twice, or I'm too stupid. Otherwise a nice Murphys Law movie.

What a slap... Here is a demonstration of what VR can do to breathe new concepts into the video game! An experience that lays the foundations for a new genre! Welcome to a world of Blade Runner and the skin of a detetive who relives the whole scene on simple request... I hope that a full game will follow!

Honestly, I don't have the slightest idea what this "Game" is supposed to represent. You are left completely alone and can rewind the Time before and back. And now? Don't make Sense to me!

A short Scene in a Bar that can be considered from any angle and rewind back or forth. An interesting Approach to a Game where you could influence Actions and change the Course of Things. Unfortunately, you can only watch in this free demo. For a Game, that's too little. Since Quanero VR costs nothing, you should definitely check in (about half an Hour)!

Great done, like more! There are several Storylines running out and at first Glance it is not so clear why happened, what happened. The Possibility of running the Time back or forth at any time and choosing the Location freely results in great perspectives on the fatal Effect in this Case. I'm not willing to Spoiler at all, everyone should find out for that themselves. I enjoyed it a lot and I could well imagine a whole Game with it, in which the Main Protagonist Has to experience the Narratives of the Participants in order to determine the Culprit.

Quanero is a VR experience that shows great Possibilities. (Tested With HTC Vive) Our Job is to find out why a futuristic Bar took to the Air. To do this, we go right in the middle Of the Action and can observe what was going on. The Great Thing about it, we can look at the Scene in the bar from any Perspective at any Point in the Explosion by rearing the Time ahead and. This works so well that you would want a whole Game with this Technique. The Graphics look pretty good and run smoothly with a GTX 970. Playing The Scene in Slow motion and stopping to really take a close Look at any Perspective is just great implemented. Definitely take a look as it's free. It's a great Experience and makes you have a good eye on more. Greeting Ziffi Ziffi's Game tips as Curator: http://store.steampowered.com/curator/5837414/
