A return to “some of our original inspirations for working with interactive media,” Cathedral-in-the-Clouds is the first ‘post-videogame’ project by (former) experimental game design studio Tale of Tales. Pitched as a virtual sanctuary for contemplation and spirituality, the project is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter.
Auriea Harvey and Michaël Samyn, the duo behind the moniker, imagine Cathedral-in-the-Clouds as an ever expanding collection of ‘living’ digital dioramas depicting 3D scenes inspired by the medieval art and religious themes the two find themselves surrounded with in their hometown of Ghent (Belgium). The individual pieces, each containing a box that houses a life-sized sculpture that refers to an ancient tale, will be available in a variety of digital formats (web, downloads, apps, video etc), or they can be explored together in a virtual cathedral via the VR headset of your choice.
