Shennong: Taste of Illusion
This is an adventure story about a hero of prehistoric China. It describes a battle between Shennong, the god-king of Chinese medicine, and a beast from his illusion. Shennong explores a forest, deep in a valley, to collect unknown plants with unique tastes and effects. A glamorous flower seduces him, but when he tastes the petal he gets poisoned. Shennong falls in illusion as the flower turns into a mythical beast, which torches him to his last breath. In the despairing darkness, he is revived by a secret friend. With the awakening’s superpower, he conquers the beast, breaks the illusion and acquires another valuable plant.
The story combines Chinese mythology, an action film and the spirit of a super hero, all within a VR experience. By letting audiences follow the point of view of Shennong, we embrace VR as a revolutionary way to tell a story. We hope you can enjoy the experience!
