“Awake’s first episode has few equals in VR. It’s a piece that understands the purpose of telling a story in VR and isn’t afraid to wrestle with new ways of involving you in a story. For that alone, you need to see it.”

“VR MVP Award ...if it’s not a game, it’s not quite a pure TV series, either. It inhabits a space between the two. In other words, it’s doing something new and exciting, pushing the entire medium forward, and it deserves a closer look.”
AV Club

“The details are astounding. The design of AWAKE is that special blend of charming and unsettling…”

Enter the world of AWAKE, a ground-breaking first-person cinematic VR thriller, that blurs the line between memories, dreams and reality.

In Episode One, you are a new presence in the story of Harry; a man obsessed with solving a mysterious lucid dream. It’s an obsession that has also cost Harry dearly and now he is stuck, waiting for release. You are the witness and it’s time for Harry to wake up!

As the ever deepening layers of Harry’s story are revealed a sinister force could lead to Harry breaking one last time. AWAKE presents a rich new genre of immersive cinema, for you to discover.

AWAKE: Episode One was designed to be a room-scale virtual reality experience, and optimised for the HTC Vive. We plan to release a Windows Mixed Reality version in early 2019 and an Oculus Rift version soon after.


AWAKE: Episode One is the opening chapter of an epic eight part series, exploring the nature of reality and the human condition in all its levels.

What if humanity is on the edge of a radical evolutionary awakening; the perfect instrument for reshaping the fabric of our universe? Future episodes get closer to unlocking deeper truths about what these collective dreams mean, with each episode deploying story-driven interactive mechanics unique to each plot, empowering audiences to learn new abilities in manipulating reality.

“We identify in our experience, a differentiation between what we do and what happens to us. Only you are playing hide and seek, since that is the essential game that is going on…” ~ Alan Watts. Philosopher
