Your Stupid Big Hands Get in the Way in B-Reel's Virtual Reality Game

Please Try Not to Knock Over That Skyscraper

Digital production company B-Reel looks like it's been having a bit of fun with virtual reality lately. The shop has developed a prototype game for Google Cardboard with an interesting challenge: dealing with your big, stupid hands.

The player takes on the role of a 160-foot tall giant named George who has quite the problem -- he lives in a tiny world, so his monstrous paws tend to get in the way and cause destruction wherever he turns. He's faced with some simple-sounding but difficult tasks: getting to work on time, picking up his little brother from school and playing soccer with his buddies. All he has to do is avoid knocking over skyscrapers and hitting helicopters in the process.

B-Reel wanted to devise a "pick-up-and-play" game that could be fun "using only the most basic of interactions -- just looking around," according to the game site, where the prototype can be downloaded for the Nexus 5 and 6.
