Would you like to know what the future holds in store for you? Put on your Oculus Rift or HTC Vive headset and take part in a first-of-its-kind VR experience: Kismet. Developed by award-winning creative studio Psyop, Kismet is a collection of three activities, including a past-present-future Tarot Card reading (“The Cards”), daily Astrology session (“The Stars”), and ancient boardgame Ur (“A Game of Wit”).
Powered by a deck of 22 hand-painted Tarot cards and an accurate real-time map of the solar system, Kismet is meant to be experienced daily, with unique outcomes every calendar day that are directly tied to not only the cards that you choose, but your individual birth date and the actual alignment of celestial bodies at the time of your reading. Seated across a table from an enchanted automaton with the power to look into the future, you’ll be transported to a place where magic is real. Named after the mysterious character at its core, Kismet is inspired by the mystic arts of tarot and astrology, brought to life in a beautifully detailed, handmade, Gothic style.
Kismet is designed to work with each individual headset’s bundled controllers. On Vive it is compatible with motion control, on Rift it is compatible with Microsoft Xbox One gamepad. This is a sitting VR experience. For best results, find a comfortable place to sit and reset your seated position. Vive users can do that by holding down the system button on the touch controller and select “Reset Seated Position”.
