A strange love in a world without sun

“When the sun grew tired of humanity, it hid, never to rise again.” Narrated by the actor Colin Farrell, this poetic VR movie immerses us into darkness that awoke the dead from their graves. In the midst of chaos, a zombie kid named Gloomy and a mortal girl, Nena, fall in love and form a deep connection that not even the most powerful man in town can destroy. Together, they might hold the key to make the endless night come to an end.

The creators have been inspired by the aesthetics of Tim Burton’s stop-motion films, such as Mr. Jack’s Strange Christmas, to create a gothic setting, at once disturbing and magical, in which miniaturized characters evolve.

Gloomy Eyes is an animated VR fiction in 6DoF & real-time 3D available on Viveport.
