Kusunda: Speak To Awaken
This VR experience is an interactive documentary where you must use the words of a dying (hopefully not for long) language in order to navigate the story.
We were responsible for all technical audio implementation, coding, and spatial mixing. We also created the multi-language localization feature as well as much of the voice recording/ editing.
Preserving a language is a primary step in preserving an entire culture and all of the knowledge and experience coded into it. For this reason it was heartwarming when the experience won so many awards including:
Storyscape Award : Tribeca Film Festival
Grand Prize : VR Now
Best Documentary Experience : Raindance Film Festival
Best Interactive Entertainment : nextReality
