Loading Human – The Interactive Adventure Game Evolved

“The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind meets Monkey Island in virtual reality”– Untold Games announces Oculus Rift-compatible virtual reality adventure game www.loadinghuman.com


27 January 2014 – Rome, Italy/… Today, Untold Games announced Loading Human – a Virtual Reality adventure game powered by groundbreaking controls and set in a thrilling sci-fi world. In Loading Human, players take on the role of André Gibson, a writer who is forced to relive his memories in order to be successfully transferred into a robot body and reunite with his beloved wife, Michelle.

With a high concept of “The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind meets Monkey Island in virtual reality”, Loading Human is the evolution of the classic ‘point ‘n click’ adventure videogame, utilising the recent advancements in VR technology to provide an unprecedented level of immersion. Untold Games has released a gameplay trailer that demonstrates how Loading Human revolutionises the adventure game genre using the latest VR and motion sensor controllers.

Loading Human has been developed to support the latest VR technology like the forthcoming Oculus Rift™ headset, and motion-based controllers like Sixense STEM™ and Razer Hydra™, which will simulate the player’s hand movements. The player will naturally interact with the world: pick-up objects, open them or use them just like they would in real life. Whilst experiencing Loading Human, players will hear André's thoughts, control his body with their own, and live his life while the story unravels itself around them.

The original idea for Loading Human came from Italian actor and filmmaker Flavio Parenti (I Am Love, Le Ombre Rosse, and Woody Allen’s To Rome With Love), who became fascinated by Oculus Rift™ and the latest motion-control technology, seeing their potential to provide new levels of interactive immersion for a wider gaming audience. Parenti collaborated with Untold Games and a screenwriter colleague to evolve the Loading Human concept into the game revealed today.

Flavio Parenti, Game Designer and Art Director said:

“The advances in VR and motion-sensor technology have allowed us to create a new level of immersion with Loading Human, and we are excited to provide a glimpse of what awaits players when they experience life through André Gibson’s eyes, hands and movements.”

Loading Human will be released for Windows and Mac OS later this year. As well as the Oculus Rift™ headset, Loading Human will also be playable with a standard monitor and a supported motion-based controller.

    Moonwalker difference was barely noticeable. Checked some sites, they recommend at least 1.98m, so i do that, difference was instantly noticeable, lol. The question is, do you want to sit 2m away from a 65''? :P (24 minutes ago)

    Moonwalker I have to come back to that about 4K, me and my stupid ass didn't take into account the viewing distance. Stupid me was watching both 1080p and 4K Netflix at like 3.5m away from the 65 inch TV. (27 minutes ago)

    b0vril @Moonwalker: I imagine the bitrate for most 4K streaming is going to be significantly less than the bitrate on most 1080p blu-rays. (13 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker These shows already are crisp as can be on the B6, not demo video crisp. Was kinda expecting that from Netflix 4K. Guess i really need to see a 4K BR disc. (16 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I deciced to upgrade my Netflix to 4K, was curious. Gotta be honest, watched episodes of Better call Saul, House of Cards and so on, i have a very hard time seeing a difference at all. Disappointing. (16 Hours ago)
