One of man’s biggest dream is fulfilled with Somniacs’ Birdly®, a unique full-body virtual reality platform guaranteeing 100% immersion.

«Birdly®» is the world’s most intuitive human-machine interface designed to let human consciousness dive into a multiverse of realities. The powerful interplay of both highly-sophisticated hard- and software puts the player in control of the storyline and allows her or him to intuitively explore different environments.

The result of the platform’s precise sensory-motor coupling – including headwind simulation, 3D audio and visual impact – is simply a breathtaking experience. Via head-mounted display the player interacts with a high-resolution virtual reality landscape full of entertaining surprises, making the Zurich-based studio’s creation a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

«Birdly®» is part of the SwissGames delegation at Gamescom 2019.
