“The Red Flute” (or the strange tale of Billy Wu) is an episodic VR story (Rift, Vive). Players venture into a fantastical land inspired by ancient Chinese history. Embedded in this piece of interactive theatre are puzzles, tasks and combat. Billy Wu, a Chinese Kung Fu fighter, is found roaming barefoot through the mayor’s mansion in New York City. Dr. Matthew Truman (aka Doc Truman) narrates the story of the madman Wu, who insists that he has slipped through a wormhole from 220 AD. Wu must return to China and prevent a civil war – a mission given to him when emerging from the Land of the Dead. The first chapter was created in Oculus Launchpad in the summer of 2017.
