Soundscape VR and Silica Sol
Back in March 2020, Soundscape VR unveiled its newest world which is inspired by the deserts of the southwest: Silica Sol. For those not familiar with Soundscape VR (SVR), CEO and Lead Developer, Eric Alexander, created a virtual reality experience that fully immerses you into the music experience.
Eric has stated that Burning Man was where the Soundscape VR journey began. The best parts of community, technology, art and music came together in a “mind-bending festival experience.” Silica Sol pays homage to that experience.
In the quest to update, upgrade and add new features, Soundscape VR introduced it’s fourth and largest Soundscape to date.
Silica Sol will transport users to a magical world of eternal desert sunsets filled with unique plant life, alien minerals and audio-reactive art. SVR users are invited to shoot, slice, draw, paint, and compete together in various game modes all while in one of four 360-degree world of breathtaking visuals – a bioluminescent forest coming to life at sunset, a crystalline mountaintop bathed in the aurora borealis, the center of the universe deep inside a shifting nebula. Like each SVR world, hidden visual effects throughout challenge users to discover glowing butterflies, crystal spirits and other dreamlike creations.
SVR offers unparalleled live concert capability, mixed reality stages, avatars that can be customized to each individual, a multiplayer and unlimited music choices, new worlds and a full-immersion experience. There’s an option for free play and in-game purchases.
