About This Game

What would it feel like if Helsinki was the city of Aleppo and you were there? What kind of possibilities does virtual reality offer to journalism?

Aleppo-Helsinki was a pilot project developed together with Yle (Finnish Broadcasting Company) around the possibilities that room scale virtual reality offers for journalism, storytelling and personal experience in the beginning of 2017. In the virtual experience the audience is taken first to a familiar scenery in a normal day Helsinki. After a while the Helsinki scenery changes, now resembling more like the news images of a bombed down and deserted city of Aleppo in Syria.

Aleppo-Helsinki is the first experience in our Perspectives series of immersive journalism experiences.

NOTE: This is not a game. This is a narrative VR experience.
