Electronic artist deadmau5 announced during the opening night of Gamescom on Tuesday that he is developing a virtual music and entertainment experience exclusively for Manticore Games’ video game creation platform, Core.
Known as Oberhasli, the experience is designed as an interactive space featuring music, games and other interactive content designed by deadmau5, whose real name is Joel Zimmerman. Fans will be able to meet up virtually and socialize as they consume the immersive offerings, which will be updated over time unlike the typical virtual gaming events involving well-known artists that tend to be one-off experiences.
“Creating a world like Oberhasli has been a vision of mine for years now, but I quickly discovered how daunting it can be to create a multiplayer experience as a solo developer,” said deadmau5 in a statement. “The amazing thing about Core is that anyone can jump in and create content regardless of experience or resources.”
