Real Serious Games partnered with acclaimed Indigenous Multimedia Expert, Brett Leavy as Immersive Heritage to develop the sequel to the video game, Virtual Warrane. Virtual Warrane II provides a virtual experience of the Original Custodians of Warrane, the Gadigal people. The virtual experience was presented as an immersive heritage landscape that displays the arts, culture, and heritage of the Gadigal people. It shows what Sydney Harbour was like before the arrival of the first fleet in 1788. Virtual Warrane II presents stories told by the Custodians of Sydney and informed by historical records, original oil paintings, and research by anthropologists and archeologists.
Immersive Heritage was invited to showcase Virtual Warrane II at Sydney’s Customs House, where it was open for the public and received a wonderful response from people of all ages, therefore, the exhibition run time was extended from a period of few weeks to months.
Virtual Warrane II also received positive media coverage on the SBS.
