«ReQuest – A journey for heroes» is an adventure game where the player wears virtual reality glasses. It revolves around the archetypal hero’s journey: the player helps the characters to survive over the course of five acts. If everything goes to plan, they return home as heroes.
This classic tale is condensed here into a board game aesthetic. The animated characters seem to act autonomously and have a certain life of their own. Wearing VR glasses, the player enters a virtual space where the elements of the hero’s journey are arranged in circles around him/her. The player can determine its course by body movements in the virtual space and positioning the characters and fields in this way.
