Winterover is an immersive, first person, VR experience that challenges you to protect your young family from the threat of prolonged separation.

As the spouse of one of the brightest stars in NASA’s astronaut corp, you’ve grown accustomed to living apart from your wife while she trains in the harshest, most remote environments on the planet, vying for a spot on the next space mission. The years you spent raising your son by yourself, doing everything in your power to instill a sense of your wife’s presence in the family life, and keeping her tethered to your shared home, have been incredibly challenging. But your bi!est test has only just begun. With the first manned mission to Mars looming and your wife being offered the coveted seat on the spaceship, you must hang tight and find the strength to keep your loved ones connected--battling the most extreme threat of prolonged separation you’ve ever faced as a family. 

Incorporating a pioneering custom-tailored artificial intelligence engine that allows you to use your actual voice and interact with your loved ones as if you are right there with them, empowers you to change the course of your family’s trajectory and the direction of this story, and offers a sense of agency that is a cut above any VR experiences currently on the market. This also means your responsibility is quite real and pressing... Keeping the people closest to you from spiraling out is your mission to Mars. Will you prevail?
