Data Center: VR Experience
Data Center is one of the several experiences we have produced in cooperation with Condair, who uses them to engage clients on the importance of keeping the critical infrastructure running in environments with properly regulated humidity. In Data Center, the user must defend a room full of servers and a compromised humidity level from statically charged bugs that live to absorb the electrical current from anything that requires power. Keeping electrical equipment in a very dry environment will draw out these monstrous bugs like moths to a flame. As the custodian of the Data Center, you must destroy the bugs and extinguish the fires they create with your blaster gloves which are specifically designed to regulate the humidity of the room. A room with perfectly regulated humidity is not one the Bugs will stay in for very long.
The purpose of the game is to inform people of the importance of keeping the temperature at an optimal level in data centers. This way the servers will live a happy life and avoid “bugs” from occurring, hence the electricity bugs in the game. With only a week of preproduction and four weeks of development, our team was able to complete and deliver an engaging game that received only positive feedback from its user base.
