theBlu 1.5 Released- Oculus Touch now supported!

Hola theBlu fans,

Today we shipped our 1.5 patch!

  • The biggest addition is Oculus Touch support via SteamVR. If you have a Rift and Touch Controllers, theBlu now supports them and offers the same content as experienced through the Vive

  • This patch also contains a number of bug fixes and overall performance optimizations.

  • Fixes a crash when transitioning between The Whale Encounter and the menu

  • This patch also introduces a number of shader optimizations that lead to overall better performance across the board

We'd also love to share with you a small video we made to celebrate this year with theBlu. We took a group of people who had never done VR before and showed them theBlu. We hope their reactions will be pretty familiar-- if you have any reactions or stories about showing someone VR for the first time using theBlu, we'd love to hear them @ support@wevr.com .

Hola theBlu fans!,
We're excited to share our 1.4 release with you! This patch includes a new surprise for longtime fans, some visual updates in the Reef Migration and a few small bug fixes.

New Features & Content:

  • Fans of the Luminous Abyss may want to take another trip to the deep depths of the ocean. Its been rumored that a new creature has made it's home there.

  • Shortened load times by a few seconds.

Bug Fixes & Changes:
  • The colors and lighting in the Reef have been updated to take advantage of changes in Unity's new lighting model. This brings it back in line with the original release

  • Fixed a bug where some fish schools weren't playing audio

  • Fixed a bug where jellyfish would not always appear in the Reef Migration's Ambient Scenes

  • Fixed a bug where controllers would occasionally fail to appear or appear with the wrong models and textures.

As always, if you're having issues or see a bug, please write to support@wevr.com so we can help! Thanks and enjoy!

theBlu 1.3 Released!

Hola theBlu fans!

We just pushed out the 1.3 Update to all users. This is a bigger update than usual with a new mode (Preview Mode), and a couple of fixes! We think you'll dig Preview Mode- a unique new way to demo theBlu to family and friends.

New Features & Additions:

  • Preview Mode is now available on the menu. Preview Mode will give you a shortened, two minute version of the Reef Migration or Luminous Abyss. It has all the interactivity, audio and events from the full experience.
    • Please note that Inspector & Ambient Mode will NOT work with Preview Mode.
  • To use Preview Mode, just toggle it "On" on the menu. By default, it will be off to avoid any confusion.
  • When entering a scene in Ambient Mode you'll now see the Ambient Mode icon below the logo.

As per usual, if you see any issues or hit any bugs, don't hesitate to let us know-- email us at support@wevr.com. And keep sending us those amazing screenshots! We love seeing theBlu from a new perspective!

About This Game

theBlu: is a deeply immersive VR series that allows audiences to experience the wonder and majesty of the ocean through different habitats and come face to face with some of the most awe inspiring species on the planet. The series, which is directed by Jake Rowell (Call of Duty, Final Fantasy, Superman Returns), has been designed as beautiful moments in passing or a collection of memories that powerfully tap into the vast potential of VR. The debut episode, featuring an incredible close encounter with an 80 foot whale, is already recognized as one the most iconic room scale VR experiences to date (a Sundance Film Festival 2016 selection). Additional episodes in this bundle take place on a teeming coral reef and in the very deepest region of the ocean. Gain access to new modes of discovery in each episode. Slow time and capture pictures in Inspector Mode, and return to a meditative version of each location in Ambient Mode.

The first three episodes of theBlu, contained in this bundle, are:


  • Whale Encounter
    An undersea encounter with the largest species on earth.
  • Reef Migration
    Witness the magnificence of an undersea migration on the edge of a coral reef.
  • Luminous Abyss
    Venture into the deepest region of the ocean to discover the iridescent abyss.
