Hart Ranch : An Epic Poem Video Game Experience
Hart Ranch is an epic poem created in Unity. Viewers of the poem will be able to explore the virtual ranch, which is made up of 13 environments. Within each environment, a heart experiences a state change (e.g., melting, burning, freezing) in response to the poem’s text.
In the video clip, the viewer visits a room in the Hall of Emotios. The line—“He rubbed his cheek against mine”—seeps into the room through a brass pipe. As the text collects in the room like a gas, the pierced heart on the dias begins to melt.
