Arnold Böcklin's Isle of the Dead as a VR experience


Originally published at:



My preferred games are the sorts that don’t trigger a fight or flight reflex (as mine leans heavily toward the former which is unhealthy for fragile electronics and my sense of self), so this looks right up my alley.

Have you played Journery, Flower, and/or The Unpainted Swan?


I just hope the title card looks like this:


Böcklin painted five versions of Die Toteninsel.
Michael Sowa painted version #6.

H.R. Giger painted Hommage à Böcklin, which is Gigers island of the dead.


Thank you for the Sowa, I’d never seen it, and as a lover of Die Toteninsel I LOL’d most heartily.
