Twin Peaks as virtual reality? As if the TV series and the movie version were not created as a reality of its own. But just to make sure, David Lynch and his team are making sure that the mystery they created will become more realistic and more mysterious at the same time.
As Nerdist, among others, reports, Collider Games, along with Showtime and Viacom CBS Consumer Products have just announced the launch of the Twin Peaks VR experience on December 13, 2019. The VR experience will cost $9.99 and will be available for Oculus Rift, Oculus Rift-S, HTC Vive, and HTC Vive Cosmos. Oculus Quest and Playstation VR versions will debut in the coming year.
Collider and Viacom, who were responsible for the technical side of this VR experience, collaborated with Lynch and his team to create it. As Nerdist notes, “they faithfully recreated not only familiar locations but the atmospheric Twin Peaks world. This new immersive VR experience combines the supernatural, adventure and escape room genres, and will challenge players to solve enigmatic puzzles and explore detailed and authentic environments made famous by the cult classic TV series. But all within virtual reality for the very first time ever.” Additionally, the Experience recreates a handful of “real-world” Twin Peaks locations as well.
Often not being a man of many words (but a man of many visions), Lynch said: “The 3-dimensional world of Twin Peaks VR gives rise to a 10-dimensional experience.”
Nerdist also reports on the rumors of a possible new run for Twin Peaks, the series.
