“Mymxie Home” is an VR interactive user experience of a low-income student fighting against an army of mice at home.
As players deal with an overwhelming list of chaos and homework, the mice army is ready to take over your home! How long can you live in the space？
The original concept was to simulate how low-income students cope with financial burdens, family responsibilities, and personal issues outside of school. Stressful but whimsical game mechanics are designed inspired by different struggles low-income students face on a daily basis. Datas are collected from low-income students at Parsons. The goal is to encourage users to learn empathy as they step into someone else’s shoe.
In order to achieve a realistic scene where the user can access another person’s private life at home, most models are 3D scanned using photogrammetry. The entire world is a simulation of a real space.
