Abstract

Flock is a shared, immersive, co-located experience made for groups of up to thirty participants. It is a gamified sandbox, an interactive music video and a ritualized LARP (Live Action Role Playing Game) as well as being one of very few examples of works in the new and unique medium of location-based, multi-user VR. This paper will describe the aspirations, challenges and lessons learned while developing a project with this new medium.
