NextVR responded to enthusiastic fan feedback for its original paranormal investigation series by introducing a third installment, PARANORMAL EVIDENCE: MISSOURI STATE PENITENTIARY. Today, this new 30-minute episode is exclusively released to fans on Daydream, Google's platform for high-quality, mobile VR.
"Paranormal Evidences continues to be a fan favorite in the VR community," said David Cole, NextVR co-founder and CEO. "We are excited to enable Daydream users to be the first to explore the shadowy and sinister halls of Missouri State Penitentiary."
The episode is an unsettling investigation at Missouri State Penitentiary, once known as "the bloodiest 47 acres in America" for its deadly riots and grisly murders. Lead investigator Jack Kassewitz, who has years of investigative journalism and linguistics experience, took his team to the abandoned prison that is known for paranormal activity. Kassewitz provided the investigators with historical artifacts, based on months of research, to trigger paranormal activity in specific areas of the prison. The facility far surpassed its reputation for unexplained phenomena as the team experienced bizarre voices, multiple touches, and a physical attack.
"When Jack came back from Unit 1 with wounds that looked like bite marks on his arm, we nearly pulled the plug on the shoot," said Michael Watchulonis, executive producer. "The team insisted on continuing, and experienced new phenomena that we can't wait to show our audience."
