Halcyon is a futuristic murder mystery that explores the dark side of Virtual Reality (VR). The 15-part series includes 10 short-form episodes, interspliced with 5 interactive VR episodes that take you deeper into the story.

This VR story is mainly about the future of the 2058, Dover Julie, the female detective, is responsible for investigating a murder occurred in the virtual reality. In these episodes you’ll be able to hunt for clues, investigate the crime scene and listen in on the detectives’ conversations. It’s a pretty cool experience. The only downside is the point-and-click navigation, which can result in some slight disorientation when your position in the crime scene changes. The experience is immersive, so it feels strange to move around without physically moving.
