Journey to Proxima Centauri: Terror of the Mnar is a 3D Virtual Reality experience that fuses many elements in order to create a brand-new interactive attraction. Diving into a game birthed by the implementation of HTC Vive technology and Unreal Engine 4, the user finds themself in a virtual world where they experience an exploration-focused adventure through the icy caverns of an ancient temple. Unlike its predecessors, this virtual experience transitions into a vehicle-based attraction halfway through the game with the user moving into a real-world motion simulator without removing their VR headset.
