Christian Aid at Light Night
St James Mount
Come and join us at Liverpool Cathedral for a full virtual reality experience!
We're rocking a high-spec HTC Vive rig which even features a completely wireless visor so you can walk around in a virtual world unencumbered. You'll be able to pick things up, crouch, jump and twirl around in your new virtual home.
But where are we taking you? The plundered rainforests of Colombia? An isolated village in Kenya or Nigeria? A new agricultural programme in Cambodia? No, you're going a little further than that, in fact A LOT further – 238,900m to humanity's first lunar colony, Moonbase Eco.
You'll take on the role of the colony's newest Residential Control Manager. Your job, to use the latest anti-grav platform technology to landscape the urban terrain of your new neighbourhood. What makes a residential sector feel like a home? A lovely park area perhaps? With a pond? Perhaps an outdoor theatre or gym? These are the decisions you'll need to make to keep your friends and neighbours happy.
Yes, it sure is an idyllic existence on Moonbase Eco. No one wants for anything. There's no disease or conflict. Everyone is at peace inside the circumference of its giant geodesic dome.
And for those of you wondering why an international development charity is simulating a lunar colony, we'll just say this – perhaps everything isn't quite as it seems in our utopian paradise?
