Return to the summer of 1975; the time and space when notorious serial killer Fritz Honka prowled the streets of Hamburg, Germany. Designed as an immersive narrative experience in support of Fatih Akin’s latest film “Der Goldene Handschuh”, the experience puts you dead-center in the path of Fritz Honka. Interact with your surroundings as you attempt to escape his bone-chilling apartment, and uncover the events at Zum Goldenen Handschuh that led you to this fateful moment.
In order to create this experience, Occupied VR has scanned the film’s sets and props in stunningly meticulous detail down to the virtual millimeter.

Using these ultra-real environments, the experience aims to cultivate a wide range of visceral reactions in its users.
