Jordan Peele fans can now explore the world of Nope into the metaverse with a mysterious new virtual reality experience. By VarietyPeele’s Monkeypaw productions and Universal images has teamed up with Meta for a whole new way to scare people.
“Nope World” is available for free in Meta Horizon Worlds app on the Quest 2 virtual reality headset. According to Variety“the experience begins with ‘Monkeypaw Productions: All Aboard’, in which you find yourself as a passenger on the Monkeypaw train – complete with Easter eggs from Peele’s Nope, get out, and We.”
In “Nope World”, visitors can interact with other fans (up to 11 at a time in a single instance), play mini-games and experience interactive elements, “including playing records, driving a motorbike, and being sucked into the sky by an ominous storm cloud.
Despite partnering with Monkeypaw, the creators of Horizon Worlds haven’t received any insider information on the film, so don’t worry (or wait) for spoilers. ” We watched the [Nope] trailers so many times and were able to bring in elements that we liked,” said creator Matt Torres. “It’s a great place to hang out and experience what it’s like to be at Haywood Ranch.”
“Through this VR experience we’ve developed with Universal and Monkeypaw, people can fully immerse themselves in the cinematic artistry of Jordan Peele,” said Katie Jones, head of North America studio partnerships at Meta. “This is a unique opportunity for moviegoers to explore this world with fellow fans, and for our partners to connect with their audiences in innovative ways.”
If traversing horror movie landscapes appeals to you, “Nope World” will soon be joined by “Get Out World” and “Us World” later this summer. For those who prefer their reality to be real, you can always head to Universal Studios for the New Nope attraction Claim of Jupiter. Either way, Peele is clearly creating both virtual reality and real reality to fit his twisted vision! You must beware!
