The Great C is a cinematic adaptation of Philip K. Dick's short story about a supercomputer (Great C) that rules the world. Each year the Great C demands that a human be sent on a pilgrimage but none have ever returned. The VR experience is to be shown at the Venice Film Festival later this summer and is coming to Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PSVR in Q4 2018.

Here's what Ryan Andal, President and Co-Founder of Secret Location, had to say about the project:

"Philip K. Dick's wonderfully forward-thinking stories have always felt primed for telling in equally forward-thinking mediums. Secret Location is highly focused on ushering in the future of storytelling, so pairing The Great C's provocative themes with our VR development prowess is helping us redefine how we consume sci-fi stories. Authors have long adhered to the 'show, don't tell' technique. We're hard-pressed to find a better way to 'show' a story than in VR - adapting Philip K. Dick's The Great C only makes our ability to 'show' even stronger."
