Skybound Entertainment, the company responsible for The Walking Dead and Outcast, has partnered with the interactive theater company, Delusion, to create the virtual reality series ‘Delusion Lies Within’. The virtual experience is based off Delusion’s popular interactive horror play called ‘Lies Within’.
The play Lies Within was set in America’s south in 1947. It followed two crazed fans of a missing author, as they set out to reclaim the novelist from her literary nightmare.
Skybound boasts that the upcoming virtual reality series will offer a cinematic adventure that is ‘unlike anything seen in the VR world to date’. Viewers will make choices throughout the dark interactive experience.
“I’m beyond excited to join the innovators at Skybound to help expand the Delusion Universe across new platforms,” said creator Jon Braver.
“Bringing ‘Lies Within’ back in a different format will give fans of the original performance a fresh take on the story, and allow a wider audience for our content.”
Delusion has seen enormous success since the interactive theater company opened in 2011. In 2012 the company worked with Niel Patrick Harris, who produced their 2012 stand-alone sequel ‘the blood rite’.
