Cato Street Barn Hideout VR

Rob Nutter of RH Viz worked with WCRAG volunteers to help us step back in time to when the Cato Street conspiracy took place in 1820.

Below you can see the barn as it may have appeared in 1820.

About the VR

This barn, reproduced using V-Ray for Cinema 4D from period resources, was the focal point of events on the 23rd February 1820. Texturing is created using Substance Designer. The project is designed with VR in mind and as such is UnReal engine ready.
