18:06:05 – [Play VO From Ryan Green]

AREA MAN LIVES is a quirky VR game that mixes a comic book world with an over-the-top radio drama. Using your own voice to talk to characters and your high-tech monkey gloves interact with the world, you begin to piece together what’s happening in this decidedly odd town on the Oregon coast. As you live inside a classic radio drama, talk to its invisible characters and interact with the environments the story paints in your mind, you’ll start to notice how your actions inside the station impact your listening audience.”

“Numinous is such an exemplary group of humans, with an uncanny ability to tell stories that resonate with life. It’s humbling for us to be able to help in some small way as Numinous continues to sub-create small worlds that make the big world just a little bit better. ”

We’ve always wanted to re-imagine our first VR title Untethered, and give it the ending its fans deserved. We were waiting for the right partners, and boy have we found them!”
