The Lost Foxfire

The Lost Foxfire (迷い狐火)is a Virtual Reality (VR) game that engages a player’s sense of vision, audition, olfaction, somatosensation and thermoception. The paired configurable multi-sensory suit delivers the thermal, wind and olfactory stimuli to the player in-order to assist them in finding and subsequently stopping the Foxfire from accidentally burning down a house. Embedded deep into the gameplay mechanic, these sensory cues also create a more immersive environment for the players!

Keywords: virtual reality; multi-sensory VR; multimodal interaction.
