“Starring You in the Role of the Fourth Rider” Launches in VRChat

Our latest world has launched!!

“Starring You in the Role of the Fourth Rider” is now online in VRChat! This unique world, built by TWKTemplar of BEEVR, interprets L. X. Beckett‘s poem “Starring You in the Role of the Fourth Rider” as an immersive experience, bringing the images and themes of the poem to life. Visitors encounter audio of the poem, read by the author, as they journey through a intimate, apocalypse-themed story to the centre of a black hole.

This innovative build is a part of the BBMC’s VR Forward project, and is a collaboration between the BBMC, BEEVR, L. X. Beckett,¬† and Toronto publisher House of Zolo. Special thanks to Artist Ch35h1R3 and Project Manager SpiderWeeb.

The “Starring You in the Role of the Fourth Rider” world has only been online only for a short time, but has already gathered almost 2,000 visitors.
