The interactive VR experience The Vanish brings one of the most serious human diseases to life: amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The Vanish is a 20-minute, immersive, narrative experience that ranges between a film and a game. The viewer slips into the role of the patient and experiences the symptoms of paralysis on his or her own body. The developer tells her own family fate with this work, which was created as part of her bachelor’s thesis as her first work in VR.
