Kismet VR 360 Gameplay

Kismet VR

Shall we ask the Cards or the Stars?

Kismet is a unique VR fortune-telling experience inspired by the mystic arts of tarot and astrology.

Rather than pilot spaceships or shoot monsters, Kismet uses VR as a bridge to a more contemplative, spiritual place. Kismet was designed as a broadly inviting experience meant to provoke thought and discussion and appeal to a wide audience who may otherwise find VR overwhelming. — Psyop LA

David Chontos brought me on to design the 22 Cards of the Major Arcana. The result was a whimsical take on Victorian puppet theaters which gave the cards an extra dimension of Z-depth — similar to that of a museum diorama. It was with such delight, to watch players engage the cards with a genuine sense of curiosity — holding them close, listening to them, and peering into them.

Check out the Making Of Kismet VR. The cards are only a mere third of the entire experience. Get Kismet VR on Steam/PS4/Oculus and play for yourself!
