About This Project
Surge is one of the first real-time VR music videos created for the new generation VR headsets. It gives an amazing insight in the possibilities of VR as a medium for music videos.
The seamless fusion between music and visual effects come to life in an overwhelming experience which transports the viewer into a world caught in a permanent sunset, inhabited by mysterious abstract creatures. You have to see it to believe it.
As our first Real-time VR musicvideo, Surge has been crazy successful in the VR industry. We first launched it on the Oculus Share page where Surge quickly climbed the ranks and remained in the top 3 apps for months. It got featured in dozens of articles and was shown at festivals where it won several awards. Today, the experience is available for free on Steam to be used with the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift.
