Work your way through each factory floor to experience evocative sound design, compelling visuals, and fun interactive tasks. Experience how spatial audio contributes to the VR immersion. This is a Daydream port and visualizes the Daydream controller by mapping controls to the Vive and Oculus Touch controllers. Note: Wired headphones required (Bluetooth headphones not supported due to their increased latency). Vive controller or Oculus Touch controller required.
