Cirque du Soleil review
The world of VR adventures gets more exciting as Cirque du Soleil enters it with their brand new 360-VR show that lets you admire the best circus troupe in the world closer than ever. This VR experience isn’t interactive but lets you look around the scene and feel yourself inside the performance. Felix & Paul Studios managed to create a unique video-VR experience for your PC, and you can download it on Steam for free.
Graphics and Sound
It would be unfair to rate this product similar to other video games as it’s not powered by any graphics engines. Instead, the developers used advanced 360 cameras to film live shows of the troupe in special studios. The result is incredible. When you watch game footages on a flat screen, you don’t notice as much detail as VR can reveal. It lets you approach the grand show much closer than it’s possible in real life. The surround sound is also provided to let you dive into the fable world.
Cirque du Soleil game is available for HTC Vive kits, and average tracked motion controllers. As you don’t have to interact with any in-game objects, you only have to rotate your head to explore the scene. To enjoy the show, you can either sit or stand in the middle of the room to feel like everything happens around you. The Vive helm is enough during the show, but the controllers are needed to interact with the menu in between the acts.
Cirque du Soleil is a casual VR experience that lets you watch some of the best performances of the legendary French circus. The default free version includes bits of demonstrational shows and offers you to upload 4 full shows for a very small price. The full bundle includes such provocative shows as Through the Masks of LUZIA, DREAMS OF ‘O’’, KÀ: The Battle Within, and Inside the Box of KURIOS. There are no borders between you and the actors, which would be impossible in a real-life show. The show masters used the best costumes, flamethrowers, steampunk robots, and realistic weapons. You will see how the best acrobats and stuntmen perform unbelievably difficult stunts without any visible fail-safe equipment. Developers built unique indoor scenes that reproduce full-size theatrical stages and make the surrounding effect even stronger.
Cirque du Soleil isn’t only an advanced acrobatic show. It’s also a complex scenario and artistic work that aims to deliver complicated messages to thoughtful audiences. The show would keep you struggling to unlock the true meaning of what you saw. Even if you don’t notice any deep messages, you will be impressed by the artistry and mastery of the show creators.
Cirque du Soleil doesn’t come to every city or country, so it’s a unique opportunity to watch the most advanced circus shows right on your computer. It’s a meticulously created indoor show that uses advanced cinematic technologies to let you dive deep into the magical world of mysteries, historical clashes, and surrealistic acrobatics. It’s a must-see alive world-level experience that won’t leave you indifferent.
