TBWA launches VR game for children to create their own versions of Midsummer Night's Dream.

HONG KONG – This year's edition of the Standard Chartered Arts in the Park Mardi Gras featured 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' theme over the weekend.

For the event, TBWA Hong Kong created a VR game entitled Rhapsody of the Forest, that allowed children to build their own magical forest with animals using movements and gestures in an immersive environment inspired by geometric polygon art.

The young participants also received a DIY pop-up picture book based on what they created in the game as a complement to the VR experience.

Renowned conservationist and UN messenger of peace Jane Goodall delivered a speech on conservation at the event. The annual event was sponsored by Standard Chartered Community Foundation and organised by the Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation.
