Desert Mothers is a meditative, multiplayer virtual reality experience. Players begin in the same procedurally-generated environment. This begins to diverge for each player as their personal environment, composed of individualized weather and hallucinations, responds emotionally to the player's actions.
The constraints within which the players interact are discovered during play, and revolve around the body, breath, drawing in the air, and out-of-body exploration of flora, fauna, and abandoned human habitations.
The game is playable in virtual reality with the Oculus Rift, or in a non-VR version for Mac/Windows/Linux. There is also a version for GearVR. All versions can be played online with up to ten other players in the same space or solo.
This has been a work in progress since January 2017, with a release set for September 15th, 2019.
