If you ever wanted to step into the mind of David Lynch, you’ll soon be able to. The cult hit and best TV show of all time Twin Peaks, is coming to VR. And I can’t wait.
The experience is being produced by Collider Games, with some input from David Lynch himself. It will be based on the 2017 season and require players break themselves out of the Red Room – just like Special Agent Dale Cooper. And according to a recent tweet, it also sounds like we’ll see some of Glastonbury Grove.
I’m honestly not the biggest fan of VR, but I’m extremely keen for this. The Black Lodge/Red Room makes for a perfect VR setting. Not only is it visually stunning, but also confusing and creepy. If done right, I can see it being just an incredible setting for a fully immersive experience.
Twin Peaks VR is going to be coming to both the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift and be available on Steam, but no release date has been confirmed yet.
However, we do know that lucky folks attending the Festival of Disruption in LA next weekend will get the chance to play it.
The Festival of Disruption is an event hosted by Lynch from October 13 – 14, and the proceeds will go to the David Lynch Foundation, which according to its website “helps to prevent and eradicate the all-pervasive epidemic of trauma and toxic stress among at-risk populations through promoting widespread implementation of the evidence-based Transcendental Meditation (TM) program in order to improve their health, cognitive capabilities and performance in life.”
If you want to relive all of the messed up magic, or need to catch up on the new season before experiencing it in VR, you can watch it all over on Stan. It’s damn fine.
