MetaMovie: An Interactive Multiplayer Movie Experience

Neos is hosting the MetaMovie, an immersive movie experience in which users can play as the leading hero via VR headset.

MetaMovie

The Neos metaverse is hosting The MetaMovie: Alien Rescue, an interactive experience that lets users’ step into the roles of the movie’s lead character. Professional actors with improv training play all supporting roles in this feature-length VR film. Each session allows for sixteen users to embark upon the adventure together.

The MetaMovie boasts on their website that users can “Be the lone hero or bring along a co-star.” The site also mentions that these experiences are meant to be experienced with friends.

In Alien Rescue, user’s team up with alien-rights activists to rescue a rare alien held captive at a research facility. However, the blood of this creature, known as the Zibanejor, is extremely toxic and scientists are currently experimenting with it to potentially disastrous results.

Other forms of entertainment are popping up in the metaverse as well. Several music-centric metaverses already offer virtual concerts with big names such as Evanescence. Likewise, Terra Virtua is teaming with Ross Golan to create the first NFT musical.

How To Buy A Ticket To The MetaMovie

Currently, NeosVR is hosting the immersive movie experience. To participate in the immersive movie experience, users must create a NeosVR Account, purchase a ticket and reserve a date and time. Users wishing to partake in the experience as the hero must buy a Hero ticket and own a VR headset. However, sidekick tickets are also available to those without access to virtual reality headsets or who just prefer a 2d experience via the new desktop mode. Users interact in desktop mode via mouse and monitor.

 According to MetaMovie, NeosVR is “the most progressive and technologically advanced metaverse engine on earth.” The site further claims NeosVR offers users the most advanced avatars. NeosVR currently includes features like facial and full-body tracking with more features, including mixed reality mode in the works.

Alien Rescue recently won the “Best VR Experience of the Year” award from XRMust Magazine. The metaverse is paving the way for creative transmedia storytelling and if The MetaMovie proves successful, we’ll likely see more interactive films in the future.
