Break a leg

Break a Leg is a VR adventure about magic. The game which had already won several awards was released today. It is also a showcase for apelab's toolkit Spatial Stories. 

Break a Leg is a VR experience getting its inspiration from the magic shows of the 19th Century such as Houdini and Kellar. Built to entertain the crowds based on tricking the mind through misdirection and routine, the conjurers obeyed drastic rules to fool the mind of the audience. The game was released exclusively on Samsung Gear VR October 30th, 2017, and will be ported to other VR platforms later.

“VR and theater are really close, it is all about acting. In Break a Leg you really are the actor on your own stage. The game is also really funny, with strange and exotic creatures and great challenges, it is a total new world”, comments Maria Beltran, apelab CDO.

The game was entirely created with apelab’s SpatialStories toolkit. With this Unity plugin (and soon to be software) it is possible to craft amazing AR/VR games or experiences without coding. "Apelab wants to push the boundaries of VR creation. With SpatialStories Studio, due next year, we will be able to craft VR and AR experiences directly within the game, only wearing a headset. After removing the code from the creation process, we will be removing the keyboard,” says Émilie Joly, apelab CEO.

The game:
An unknown species has kidnapped you to unleash the ultimate power of the Galaxy. Only a human from planet Earth is able to unleash its force by going through the ancient book of Stellar Tricks written by Houdini himself. For centuries, they have been looking for the master illusionist who would have the skills to master this universal force allowing them to rule the galaxies and worlds beyond. But be careful, they do not like failure…
