Welcome to the blog for Project WeXist!
We’re a group made up of film makers, modelers, concept artists, designers, and programmers. All working together to make a VR game! Our goal is to tell the story of WeXist while mixing our individual skills together as a group to create an amazing end result.
30 years ago from the present, a benevolent, highly intelligent alien species makes contact with earth. Landing their spaceship in the middle of a large metropolitan area. Eager to share their knowledge with the earthlings, technology advances at a rapid rate under the advanced knowledge of the aliens.
But on one day, the aliens decide to lock themselves away inside their spaceship, along with a group of scientists that also disappeared with them. The world around them is in shock and confused, but neither the aliens or the scientists have shown themselves since that day.
With no way for the world to enter the highly advanced space ship, governments and militaries fail to do anything about the situation. The world has since forgotten all the good the aliens brought, but it never forgot or forgave the aliens for how they went completely silent out of nowhere and took some of their brightest people. The ship abandoned by everyone except for the last security personnel.
Meet Peter, a young documentarian that is intrigued by the aliens and studies their impact on the world. This is not completely unrelated, Peter’s father was one of the scientists that disappeared along with the aliens. Eager to try and get to the bottom of his father’s disappearance, he has been trying to get answers for the last 30 years.
One day, Peter gets a call from a mysterious source who calls herself Hannah. She claims to know how Peter can get into the ship and wants to help him do that. She invites him over to a train station, promising to meet him there and get his journey to find his father started.
The project was started as a continuation of Project They Are. We got handed over all the assets and documents, and started working on how we wanted to go on with the story, which you can read above. We’ve since added our own twists to the universe, and set up a plan to turn it into a full VR game by the end of the summer.
