Oto’s Planet

© Skill Lab, 2024

This interactive VR tale follows the quiet lives of Oto and Skippy on their tiny planet, disrupted by Exo, a cosmonaut whose spaceship crashes there. Oto enjoys his simple life by chilling in a hammock and eating pink fruits from his unique tree. Helped by the user, Oto tries to grab a fruit but accidentally causes a shockwave that attracts Exo’s ship which crashes on the planet. Exo emerges, plants a flag, and starts exploring the planet without any regard for Oto. Their cohabitation proves difficult, with communication barriers and Exo’s territorial behavior. Exo splits the planet and builds a wall, claiming the tree. Oto ingeniously finds ways to get fruit from the tree, irritating Exo. Their conflicts escalate until a meteor shower hits the planet, leading to unforeseen consequences for both characters. The story explores themes of cohabitation, conflict, and eventual reconciliation as Oto and Exo navigate their new shared existence.
