About This Game

Isle of the Dead is a timeless journey, starting from an everyday apartment towards our final destination, guided by Charon, ferryman of the Underworld.
This VR experience is a loose recreation of the eponymous work painted in 1883 by the Swiss symbolist painter Arnold Böcklin. The famous masterpiece also inspired a symphonic poem by Rachmaninov, which makes a perfect soundtrack to accompany the experience.

Isle of the Dead is part of the collection « ARTE TRIPS », a series of immersive VR experiences that take you into masterpieces from 16th to 20th century by well-known painters.
