This VR experience uses the architectural design by M@ STUDIO Architects for the 2016 National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) Architecture Commission titled “Haven’t you always wanted…?” which transplanted a familiar object (a suburban car wash) into an unfamiliar surrounding (the art gallery) and explores ideas of ‘uncertain conditions’ and ‘dematerialisation’ using materials such as multiple layers of cricket netting - that create moire effects - and hot pink astro turf.

‘If only…’ asks what if we could experience the changes we make to an architectural design in real time and from inside the architectural space and see the effects of the transformation from morning through to evening. The materiality of the pavilion can be changed in ways that may not, in reality, be possible or practical (such as gold netting), while you can teleport to different locations inside and outside the pavilion.

‘If only…’ also works with and extends some of the themes of the M@ STUDIO pavilion in order to develop atmosphere, mood and experience. It offers bubbles, fog, ghostly portals, the chill of a cold night and just you inside the pavilion changing the materials as many times as you like and watching the shadows, seeing what happens as the sun rises and sets. If only…

‘If only…’ is a collaboration between RMIT University’s Centre for Game Design Research, M@ STUDIO Architects and d__Lab RMIT which explores game design experience and architectural design.


The National Gallery of Victoria (NGV), situated in Melbourne, is the oldest and most visited gallery in Australia. Founded in 1861, today the NGV holds the most significant collection of art in the region; a vast treasury of more than 70,000 works that span thousands of years and a wealth of ideas, disciplines and styles. {LINK REMOVED}

RMIT is a global university of technology, design and enterprise. Situated in Melbourne, it is one of Australia's original tertiary institutions and RMIT University enjoys an international reputation for excellence in professional and vocational education, applied research, and engagement with the needs of industry and the community. {LINK REMOVED}

so Im confused as to why you are putting this on greenlight. its a neat VRproject, sure but wheres the game?

Wow, yeah all the comments you deleted weren't even unkind or particularly harsh, they were perfectly legitimate questions and concerns about the project and the way it's being presented. And rather than addressing those concerns, you opted to just wipe them all out and pretend like they never existed? Yeah, that's really professional and I typically find that potential customers just love to be treated poorly. Great way to earn votes and make friends.

I think you may have missed a big point here, steam is a GAMING platform. People come to steam to play games. You would be better off designing this for the oculus app store. And deleting comments for not understanding your product? In which business would this be deemed acceptable? How does your description and your video make sense on a gaming platform anyway? What I'm trying to say here is sod off pricks.

Ignoring for a second that this isn't actually game and the navel gazing of the description, the only actions you have are to alter the textures on the model and some settings?

(And deleting comments? I honestly expected more from someone making such a big deal about their associations).

Oh dear. You know when I saw the video, I thought this is a nice idea then your lack on understanding when it comes to customer interaction reared its ugly head and now you'll never get this onto the steam storefront, unless you crawl up A T O M I X's arse

I can confirm this is a legitimate project, via social media.
Equinox Feb 8, 2017 @ 1:13am 
Well thats an instant no because I couldn't understand a goddamn thing about the project. Plus devs are censoring people by deleting comments. Go and advertise your VR Pet Project somwhere else.
