A Jester’s Tale

A Jester’s Tale

Experience the viscerality of a psychologically taxing children’s fable merging with the physicality of our world, as you come home cold and tired, just in time for a bedtime story. In this interactive augmented reality narrative the characters you see through the Magic Leap headset are just hollow meshes, but maybe so are you.
