Pressure Cooker is about the meeting of six characters in a country house for the week-end. What should be a normal evening turns into a disaster, as everyone forget the pressure cooker and the fuse going off ! Here is this evening : three young trespassers were hanging in a garden when suddenly a gate opens and a car arrives. Helen, Paul and Camille hop off and enter the house. Another car arrives, and Philip introduces Eva to Paul. Six minutes later, Eva hits on Paul while Helen puts a knife into the tires of Philip’s car who’s wondering if Camille’prediction about killing someone tonight may be true. In the meanwhile the cat gets in the house for the sixth time as one young intruder can’t find his way out. How this will end? Pressure Cooker is a VR real time narrative. The story takes place in a 6 room house and a garden, entirely made of printed woodcut. It’s an immersive and interactive experiment, the user can go through different rooms by gazing the doors. He can follow several stories, but he can’t be aware of everything. Indeed the user can’t be everywhere, his room choices will bring him to a personal vision of Pressure Cooker.
