DEEP VR

Breathe in. The lights around you glow and intensify. Breathe out. The glow diminishes. Take a deep breath. You rise up and glide across the seascape. DEEP VR is a meditative and psychoactive VR experience, controlled by the player’s breathing. Discover a beautiful underwater seascape where the world challenges, surprises, and comforts. Co-creator Owen Harris made this game to deal with his own issues with anxiety; it’s a fascinating glimpse into how VR can be used in a variety of different ways, including connecting us to our bodies and minds.
