Ctrl, the debut VR short film from Breaking Fourth, releases on PS VR tomorrow. Originally launched on Gear VR, Ctrl is about a young gamer called Liam, who is competing in an e-sports tournament – but all is not as it first seems...
Shown at the Toronto International Film Festival VR Showcase and Raindance Film Festival in London, Ctrl was nominated for awards at the Wired Audi Innovation Awards and Proto Awards.
Alyssia Frankland, Marketing Director at Breaking Fourth said, “As an independent studio focused on creating original content, we are excited by the seemingly limitless creative possibilities associated with VR, especially around immersive storytelling. We believe VR is the best way to be truly immersed in a story, and by harnessing its power of presence and immersion, our team are working hard to create experiences which take storytelling to a whole new level.”
