Background

 

'We all have our own secret pleasures.'

 

Everyone has their own secret pleasures for stress-relieving. For many people pulling out hairs and breaking pimples are fun. Moreover many people enjoy watching Youtube videos about those secret pleasures. Do you think it is gross? Yes, it is. But what is the reason people are obsessed with these activities? It is so satisfying!  

I wanted to recreate this experience in a VR game so that we could virtually enjoy this secret pleasure. 

 

About the game

 

  • Why in VR: Remove stress without the physical pain!

  • Goal: Offer the pleasure of playing a simple arcade style game

  • Target: General users

Challenges

 

How to supplement the physical feeling of pulling a hair and popping pimples?

  • Haptic vibration when a user hold a hair
  • Sound effects enforce what action the player is doing: Example when you pull a hair the game says “Ouch!”
  • Explosion visual effects : Using particle system
