In this week's vlog, I sat down with my friends Nadya Lev and Star St. Germain, Founders of Aconite and Co-Creators of the dreamlike virtual reality game, HoloVista. Nadya and Star are trailblazers of immersive storytelling and have built their platform on transforming the ordinary world into something extraordinary. On this episode, the seasoned creative duo takes me through their journey as the creators of one of 2020’s most promising mobile games. I’ve had the honor of working with the team and was chuffed (that’s the Brit coming out in me) when I read this reviewer’s Blade Runner comparison. You can play their recently released mixed-reality storytelling game here in the app store.
