BarCode XR is a licensed lounge that will be the place for CIFF fans to enjoy a variety of multimedia experiences. We’re bringing all the action and adventure to Eau Claire Market with an impressive lineup of video games, programmed experiences and virtual reality pieces, including award-winners from SXSW, Tribeca, Venice and more!
Alone Together (Interactive): Step into the shoes of a professional stand-in and weave in and out of the lives of lonely people. With voice recognition and AI, your interactions are spontaneous, creating excitement and wonder.
Pulsar - The VR Experience: Influence the flow of time, engage in galactic events and discover the magnetic melodies, rhythms, textures and colours hidden in three imagined corners of space.
Reimagined Volume II: MAHAL: The four immortal children of the recently passed creator god, Bathala, come together to defeat their own pain, accept a devastating loss and save their world from a celestial catastrophe.
Tea is Served: The Loch Ness Monster, the Chupacabra, the Mothman, the Wendigo, and one ordinary guy called Brian have all come from across the globe to enjoy an afternoon of tea and mayhem with this year's host - Dracula.
Gunbrella: A noir-punk action-adventure set in a world dependent on a rapidly diminishing natural resource. Players take the role of a gruff woodsman on a quest for revenge, armed with the mysterious Gunbrella, a firearm/umbrella.
A Highland Song: Moira is living with her mum in the Scottish Highlands when she runs away to the coast. Control Moira as she scrambles across the mountains and through valleys filled with echoes, stories, ghosts and songs.
Meowmentum Mori: A first-person single-player speedrunning platformer where you play as Mori, a novice cat mage. To inherit the family magic, Mori must finish each trail as fast as possible & become a full-fledged cat mage.
Sludge Life 2: The grimiest first-person vandalism sim since SLUDGE LIFE 1—but, like, twice as dense. Explore a huger, weirder, gnarlier open world loaded with secrets, weirdos, jokes, and, of course, plenty of spots to tag.
The Cosmic Wheel Sisterhood: Play as Fortuna, a Witch living exiled on an asteroid who forms a pact with a forbidden creature in the hopes of regaining her freedom.
