Chocolate, the latest virtual creation from the mind of Tyler Hurd—the VR animator and director behind BUTTS (2015) and Old Friend (2016)—is set to launch on August 17th on the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
Chocolate is a real-time VR music video set to a catchy, building electronic track of the same name by artist Giraffage. The short three minute experience is a quick but trippy and polished delight, placing you at the center of a psychedelic stage with choreographed animation happening in coordination with the beat.
I previewed Chocolate during its showing at Sundance earlier this year and found that it got me moving to the beat and kept my attention over the course of the music video; it also compelled me to show several others so they could experience the crazy and colorful visuals and the toe tapping beat.
Come August 17th, Chocolate will launch to the public on the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, priced at $2 for the first week and $3 thereafter. The experience is also ‘Subpac Optimized’, meaning that it’s been specially tuned for those using the Subpac bass backpack.
