For their 140 year anniversary, we recreated the popular shopping mall “Gerngross” in Virtual Reality. A journey into the past of Viennese culture and a chance to win something at the popular wheel of fortune.

Back in the XX century

To capture the flair of the 1900s and to make this experience as authentic as possible, we added music that was popular during this time in Vienna. You can hear the people talk and walk and trying to avoid getting hit by the tram you will feel yourself being transported back to a place that was just like a busy then as it is now. Interactivity is another important factor in making virtual worlds more immersive. Fittingly for an anniversary celebration, we, therefore, added a wheel of fortune that users could spin to test their luck and win some real-life prizes.
