Philip K. Dick Story Adapted for Virtual Reality by Secret Location

Toronto- and Los Angeles-based virtual reality (VR) studio Secret Location has adapted a Philip K. Dick short story for VR, and is set to debut the resulting experience at the Venice Film Festival next month. It’s the first-ever adaptation of one of the author’s works for VR.

Philip K. Dick’s “The Great C” was first published in 1953. The story is about a post-apocalyptic world ruled by a computer that requires yearly sacrifices from a nearby tribe. Secret Location’s adaptation focuses on a woman who has to decide whether she should rebel against those cruel traditions.
