With the recent release of Natural Magic, the expansion to Waltz of the Wizard VR experience, Haptics Club is beyond excited to interview Hrafn Thorisson, the CEO of Aldin Dynamics.

Not all VR games are created equal. Designing an immersive escape is an art form. You need all the elements in the right quantities, just like grandma’s famous cookie recipe.

Waltz of the Wizard is like stepping through the wardrobe in the movie Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. In this case, the player gets transported into a magical tower in the form of a wizard. Trust me, there’s nothing quite like being an all-powerful wizard.

Hrafn and the Aldin team are the chefs behind the scenes cooking up “believable reality experiences,” including all the intriguing, tactile, and enchanting immersive interactions.

Haptics Club will cover questions on creating immersive environments, the use of narration and tactile interaction in VR. The second half (30 minutes) of the show will open up for audience questions. This is a great opportunity to ask those burning questions!
