Magnetique is the first VR 360° Comic Book
Oniride today launches the first issue of Magnetique, a new comic series for Gear VR available at the Oculus Store. This book is a completely native experience in which each panel takes up a full 360 degrees. You flick through images just like you would a normal book, only with the action completely surrounding you just like it would in a 360° movie or image. Watch the trailer here under.
Magnetique chronicles the adventures of Nero, a young puppeteer on a trip to the fictional coast of Cyan. The creators are showing off little about the story — and we don’t want to spoil the first issue — but Oniride is promising a story of war and revenge in the series’ first trailer. Aesthetically, at least, it reminds us a little of Studio Ghibli’s art style.
Download Magnetique at the Oculus Store.
