Travis Mercredi (Métis) | Canada | 2018 | VR | All Ages
Walk through this gentle and melancholy VR experience that places you on a lovely garden island covered in bright white stones...2,700 stones in fact, each one signifying one of the approximately 2,700 missing and murdered indigenous people in Canada. A calm memorial, this walking sim has no time limit or actions you can take other than to sit or walk and contemplate.
