Episode 1: The Gate-Crasher (2023)
You have been recruited by the prestigious teleportation company IIOIIG, to be a part of their mysterious ‘Find WiiLii’ project. You discover that your job is to find and collect the bits of memory created when someone uses a teleporter. But the company is being less than forthright about what they intend to do with these collected memories.
Will you serve the company above all else and preserve this world changing technology, even when the company motives may be less than pure? Or will you help a misguided and disgruntled creator fighting for the truth, to take down the company from inside their own system?
GiiÖii, a leading immersive studio known for its innovative and story-driven content, has teamed up with Ferryman Collective to co-produce Find WiiLii. The project, which took three years to complete, was selected as a "Development Showcase" at the 2020 Cannes Film Festival XR Market, drawing attention from its planning stage. GiiÖii has established a reputation for producing immersive experiences, such as Missing Pictures and Ihyangjeong: Carving with Memories, which was selected for the SXSW competition category for the second year running.
Find WiiLii is a testament to GiiÖii's continued commitment to creating impactful and memorable virtual experiences.
Ferryman Collective and GiiOii have collaborated successfully before, most notably on the creation and licensing of the Korean version of the Ferryman show: The Severance Theory: Welcome to Respite, which went on to festival and public acclaim across Asia.
