    Invasion!: Exploring Empathy and Agency in VR



    Our company’s first dive in VR has been quite a learning process. The technical hurdles were certainly huge, but most were easy enough to anticipate. It has been the creative hurdles were much more difficult to predict in this brand new medium. What does it mean to be immersed in a 3D world?
