Isola is a VR experience that takes place in a fantasy world consisted of many floating islands. Special pieces representing forgotten dreams are scattered in the space. The player has to find his lost pieces to become complete again. During the Journey, a special vehicle will be available for navigation and interaction. With the vehicle, the player can sail among the floating islands. He/she will overcome bad weather, throw a ring to attract giant fish, and at the end, combine two broken pieces collected along the way to form a full star.
