    What makes my game unique?

    An experimental approach to virtual reality storytelling, Fire Escape explores a new syntax, departing from the existing conventions of both VR storytelling and the cinematic techniques of traditional filmmaking such as editing or time jumping. Fire Escape assigns agency to the voyeur allowing them to become the surrealist director and editor—where inside the storyworld, the viewer brings order to the scenes as they unfold synchronously and in real time. In this neo-Hitchcock anthology that examines race, classism, and the social divide in contemporary urban America, the viewer must challenge their own unconscious bias to uncover the truth.
