This story started with a phone call with my Drill Sargent who called me out of the blue upon his return from a call of duty in Iraq and told me a story about a gun battle with a religious cult called "The Soldiers of Heaven".

In this proposed VR experience the user is a film maker who armed with a virtual video camera calls on his old Drill Sargent in his suburban home in Alaska. The drill sargent invites him in and tells him this story involving a shot down helicopter and a gun battle that ended up with 600 people dead.

The gameplay will be you in an immersive animated world. I have one of the lead animators from Scanner Darkly who will help with the overall art direction and look:

I envision about 6 minutes of game play (3 minutes of the suburban scene and 3 minutes of intense Iraq imagery)
