Gary the Gull: a new interactive VR experience by a Pixar writer and director


Gary the Gull is a new VR experience directed by 18-year Pixar veteran Mark Walsh, available for the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Playstation VR.  Gary the Gull features a talking seagull as the eponymous star of the show.  It's an interactive VR experience where the dialogue is driven by the user's reactions such as nodding yes or shaking their head for "no." 





I thought it was amusing and well made.  Although it didn't make any groundbreaking use of VR, it was entertaining and a worthwhile download.  I would be interested to see if Mark and his team can make a longer VR experience.
