FREE THE NIGHT is a magical interactive journey that invites you to extinguish lights and return the stars back into the night sky. The liberation begins in the canyons at night, shadowed hills frame an iconic city view. Nighttime lights litter the scene, radiating an amber glow that bleeds up into the night sky. We are massive giants, gently but firmly, ridding the unnatural light to unveil our glorious starscape. We are able to pull up street lamps as if they are wildflowers and persuade lights out of buildings with a gesture of our hands. Each diminished light emits gorgeous embers that are a cross between fireflies and fireworks. These embers are quite playful and they swarm around us before returning to where they once lived as stars. As the lights are turned off, and the sky is slowly taken back, we are gifted to a truly magnificent interactive display - the heavens are free! Tips: FREE THE NIGHT utilizes 6DOF and requires Microsoft’s VR Motion Controllers (preferably two). Inside the experience you will see that your controllers are represented by human hands. The hands have an intuitive display that aids in discovering interactive points in the environment. There are two main ways to play and interact; The trigger button (index finger) allows you to release the stars and call them back to you to play and your hand displaces the flock as you move through them. We encourage you to explore and play!
Instructions: Use the controllers to release the stars! Title Sequence- Your trigger button (index finger) displaces the particles, the more you press and move your hands around, the more they will dance. Release The Stars- Lamposts and telephone poles can be grasped by closing your hand by pressing down on your trigger button and lifting up to the sky. Release the trigger button to "blow out" the lights. Press the trigger buttons again to call back and play with the particles. Houses can be extinguished by pointing toward the house, once you see a visual response, press the trigger button to “blow out” the lights. Press the trigger buttons again to call back and play with the particles. Unveil The Constellations- Point toward the constellations (bright clusters of stars) and press the trigger button to call them out, the more you press and move your hands around, the more they will dance.
