Concept Work          

Hawkins Upside Down


Hawkins Upside Down is a concept VR project inspired by Stranger Things, created by Andre Elijah of OPIATS.

Will Byers has once again unknowingly slipped into the Upside Down, and it is up to the newfound "13" to use her special abilities to save him and bring him home to the town of Hawkins.

This concept piece allows the player to embody Will Byers and slip into the Upside Down when he's left at home alone acting as the prologue to the events that will unfold throughout the experience.

The full experience will allow players to explore the town of Hawkins, and uncover its various secrets contained within its government labs, school, junkyard, and swathes of untamed land crawling with demonic creatures such as the Demogorgons, and ultimately controlled by the Mind Flayer.

Hawkins Upside Down has been built in Unreal Engine 4 for room-scale VR with the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift in mind with the intention of becoming a Location-Based Experience in the future.
