'Manifest 99' Rattles into Japan

Released for PlayStation® VR in Japan on March 12, 2018, Manifest 99 is an ominous and eerie story about finding redemption in the afterlife. Set on a mysterious train inhabited by a murder of crows, you assist four travel companions on a journey to their final destination.

This virtual reality experience is played without a controller: you gaze into the eyes of the crows that inhabit the train to move to their perches, viewing the world from their scale and perspective. You also look into the eyes of your travel companions—a bear, and owl, a doe and a crow—to uncover the reason why they—and you—are on this train traveling into the great beyond.

Manifest 99 was developed by Flight School Studio, a creative studio composed of an acclaimed team of innovators with a mission to craft inventive and emotionally resonant stories for a multitude of platforms, including film, games, VR and AR. This VR experience has won awards at several festivals and competitions around the globe, including Best Interactive Narrative VR Experience at London’s Raindance Film Festival, and the Independent Jury Award at the Future of StoryTelling Festival in the US.
