I had more dreams that I barely remembered briefly until they faded away as I moved to other dreams, so now I only remember part of one of my dreams, which was probably inspired by the TV show The Peripheral.
The end of this dream took place in the evening, I was inside a fictional one-story building either in the alley or next to the alley by my parents yard, and I was there playing maybe a multiplayer virtual reality first-person shooter video game with a few family members.
More family members, friends of family members, and unknown people started to show up uninvited to join the game.
On September 14, 2015, Production I.G. announced a 10-minute virtual reality short film titled Kōkaku Kidōtai – Shin Gekijōban: Virtual Reality Diver based on The New Movie.
The short film is described as an “original story” presented in “360° 3D video” and will play through the use of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, releasing worldwide on both the Apple App Store and Google Play in the fourth quarter of 2015.
A three-minute demonstration trailer of Virtual Reality Diver was shown at the 2015 Tokyo Game Show.
It was input through a single 2D channel, rather than the 3D input planned for the final product, in order to present it to a larger press through the six-meter hemispherical display.
In subsequent press releases, many outlets released tilted photographs of the trailer.
Virtual Reality Diver is part of Production I.G.’s “SIGN” project, an effort to create a “bodily sensation of being in another world” and to “combine futuristic technology with art”.
It will be a collaborative effort with graphics design studio “WOW”.
Staff from Production I.G. includes Mikio Gunji as executive producer, Atsunori Maeshima as producer, and Hiroyuki Ogino as an assistant.
Staff from WOW includes Nobumichi Asai as creative director, Toshiyuki Takahei as technical director, and Satoru Itoya as technical producer.
The voice work in the film features Maaya Sakamoto as Major Kusanagi, Kenichirou Matsuda as Batou, Miyuki Sawashiro as the Logicoma, Ryota Takeuchi as original character Okitatsu Oribe and Sayaka Ohara as Yuri.
