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.

    MrWhite Games, lower prices on things, and all firmware stuff sorted, and I see now reason why it wont be a success. So basically, about 6 months to a year to wait (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Basically the way I see it is this: it needs a handful of games, some sociable ones, and a few of its other niggling caveats to be consolidated as to be reasonable. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite as if they'd very little understanding of what the thing actually is, and what it's trying to do. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, most seem reasonable in their concerns. But it sounds resoundingly positive as far as the hardware goes. Unless you're IGN of course. They basically just shat on it (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX Well DF's review was pretty good and hardly all positive. I think if you could find something in their review to validate either decision. (1 Hour ago)
