Voodoo Child

Summer 2012 | 3 month project | Ingredients: Unity, C4D

Voodoo Child is a sailing simulator that teaches users how to sail through experimentation and exploration. It’s continually evolved as a project, with the addition of oculus support and of a custom Arduino controller that emulates a tiller. However, anyone can try it with first person controls.

Here’s a link to the prototype.

The W, A, S, D keys let the user to walk around the boat, while the left mouse button lets you turn the tiller to steer.

**Pro tip. Sailboats can’t sail directly into the wind.

The music used is Boards Of Canada’s “Satellite Anthem Icarus”
