The Viscosity of the Plot is Increasing
SHARD @ The Franklin Institute
Description
Plas.md has partnered with the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia to create SHARD, a game based virtual microbiology lab using the HTC Vive room-scale VR system. The goal is to create an easily deployable, narrative driven experience that allows disadvantaged students around the world to explore microbiological techniques (CRISPR, PCR, etc...) along with STEM related topics in a fun and immersive setting.

The SHARD (Subterranean Hot Agent Research Division) complex is a twenty-story underground facility located in an undisclosed location in the mid-western United States. ​SHARD is the first facility of its kind to utilize new living neural tissue packs located throughout the complex to assist with all aspects of research and facility management. Due to the extremely hazardous nature of the work, SHARD has created an extensive virtual reality laboratory system that enables researchers to safely perform experiments remotely.

Players take on the role of a trainee working in the SHARD remote Virtual Reality lab 7. ​An infection has begun to spread through the living components of the SHARD computers, resulting in a site lockdown and multiple failures that threaten the lives of scientists trapped within the walls of the complex. From within the virtual environment, players must utilize their microbiology skills and race against time to solve the mystery of what's causing the infection before it's too late... ​
