Allumette is an account of the love a mother and daughter have for one another, and the sacrifices they make for the greater good. Stunning design with great sound and a touching story based on "The Little Match Girl" by Hans Christian Andersen. Great art has the capability to touch our emotional core and this 20 minute superbly directed VR movie does just that. Another great example of an enjoyable VR animation experience that lets you view a stop motion animation style story from within the artist created world. The ability to walk around the enviroment is wonderful. Such experiences are a great implementation of the new VR technology.
